mark snopek funeral TONIGHT in ames

short notice, but i just received this email:
. . .
This probably ran over the weekend through the Ames Tribune.
Honestly, I just got it and posted it online as news.
Mark Lee Snopek, 53, of Boone passed away on August 8, 2007
in a hit and run accident while riding his bicycle .
A celebration of Mark's life will be held Monday, August 13, 2007
at 7 p.m. at Adams Funeral Home in Ames.
[located one block north of main street, and
one block west of duff avenue]
The family will greet friends
from 3:30 to 8 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.
Mark was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on February 10, 1954
to Leland and Irene (Rostkowski) Snopek.
He married Kay Milinovich on April 28, 1979.
Mark worked for the Iowa Department of Transportation
as a Wetland Ecologist.
Mark enjoyed canoeing, especially the boundary waters,
bicycling and hiking.
He was a voracious reader of natural history.
He is preceded in death by his sister, Amy Lang in 1985.
He will be fondly remembered by his wife of 28 years Kay,
parents Lee and Irene Snopek, sister Jill Kotke,
Nieces Lindsey Lang and Alyssa Kotke, nephews Grant Lang and Taylor Kotke,
special pet cat Spot and a host of family and friends.

Adams Funeral Home of Ames entrusted with the arrangements.

i will be driving to ames from the orphanage in des moines
with my bike and will park and ride to the funeral home for the services.
thinking "out loud" i suppose we could skip the bikes and just show in cycling garb,
but THAT would be even more lame than taking the bikes for a ride.
perhaps we could go for a ride following the service.
call me [515.669.8318] if you want to go.
