Mark Douglas Lancaster, age 63 years, of Fulton, Mo., a former Jefferson City resident passed away peacefully Friday, March 6, 2020 at the University Hospital in Columbia, Mo.

Mark was born on August 14, 1956 in Jefferson City, Mo. to Edgar M. and Donna J. (Scholten) Lancaster.

A lifelong resident of the central Missouri area, he attended Jefferson City Public Schools. Mark worked at Sheltered Workshop for several years before he began his employment for nearly 20 years as a groundkeeper with the Missouri State Conservation Department. He mainly worked at Runge Nature Center where he enjoyed keeping the trails clean among many other tasks. Mark cherished his great co-workers at Runge and truly thought of them as friends.

Family was the center of Mark’s life and he was loved dearly. When he was younger, he cherished family vacations, especially to Florida to visit relatives. His grandfather Scholten and him were extremely close and he would take Mark with him everywhere. As he got older, he still loved to travel to see his brother and nephews occasionally. Mark had a great sense of humor, loved visiting with people, and liked being independent.

Mark was always fascinated with trains and that passion extended to collecting model trains and visiting any train station. He especially enjoyed riding the Amtrak to St. Louis or Kansas City, the Durango-Silverton train in Colorado and the Heber Valley train in Utah.
Survivors include: one brother, Eric Lancaster and his wife Susan of Houston, Tx.; and two nephews, Zach Lancaster of Crystal Lake, Nv. and Matt Lancaster of Salt Lake City, Ut.

He was preceded in death by his father in 1991 and his mother in 1993.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Thursday, March 12, 2020.

Graveside services and interment will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 12, 2020 at Riverview Cemetery. Mark will be laid to rest next to his parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the American Cancer Society, 2409 Hyde Park Road, Jefferson City, Mo. 65109 or the Special Olympics, 305 Special Olympics Drive, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary.

So very sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I enjoyed talking trains with him and helping figure out which engine would be his next. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to Mark's family.
