March 18, 1967 – November 18, 2022

Our father, Mark Cathey, sadly and unexpectedly passed away on November 18th, 2022 at the age of 55.

Mark went into the Army right out of high school and contributed to multiple operations on the way up the ranks to Sergeant First Class.

He was an exceptional father and always went above and beyond to make sure we had any and everything we needed.

Our father also dedicated the past decade to the speed skating world where he became a coach and made many people aware of the sport as well as giving anyone a chance to try it out.

He leaves behind two sons, Kyle and Seth, and we ask that you keep his memories alive and remember him for the selfless man he was and always will be.

A visitation will be held at 11:00 a.m. with a funeral service at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at the Shrine of Remembrance “America the Beautiful” Chapel, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910.  Interment will follow at 1:00 p.m. at Pikes Peak National Cemetery, 10545 Drennan Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80925.
