Mark was born on June 7, 1949, in Taylorville, the son of Earl and Hazel Reeter.

Mark had a long career in the commercial finance business retiring from Citi Capital as a sales representative and later from Roland Machinery as their Finance Manager. Towards the end of his career, Mark also worked as a driver for Isringhausen. Mark was a member of Athens Christian Church and belonged to the Kedron Masonic Lodge #340, the Ansar Shrine, and Sangamo Surf Club.
