Mark Charles Lathrop (52) of West Des Moines passed away peacefully at Mercy Hospice of Johnston on Saturday, April 18, 2015. During his illness, Mark was able to spend much of the time at home enjoying the company of family and friends.

Mark was born 6/7/1962 in Oskaloosa, Iowa, to Kenneth and Marjorie Lathrop. He was raised in Waukee, Iowa, and graduated from Waukee High School in 1980. Mark enjoyed nearly all sports and was an avid golfer. He shared this past time with many family members and friends. Mark was a committed fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes and attended countless home football games.

Throughout his life, Mark worked in the family dry cleaning business, worked as a finish carpenter and co-owned a hometown pub. Mark had a quick wit, a contagious laugh and loved spending time with family and friends.

Mark is survived by his wife Bobbi of Adel; children Ryan (Eliece), T.J. (Michelle) and Kara of West Des Moines, and Mackenzee of Adel; brothers Stephen (Sharmin) of Prole and Bradley (Danielle) of West Des Moines; and predeceased by his parents and his brother Joey.
