Mark Lynn Regier, 60, passed away on March 31, 2016, in the Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice Wing of Via Christi Hospital with loved ones by his side.
Mark was born on May 2, 1955, in Henderson, Neb., to the late Harry and Dorene Regier.
In 2012, Mark was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin?s Lymphoma, and he fought to beat it into remission. His life was changed shortly after as he began to follow Jesus in a new and deeper way. Mark and Patti jumped in with the launch of The Gathering Community Church two years ago, and life has never been the same.
Mark is survived by his wife, three children and five grandchildren: Nick Regier and his wife Shannon of Lakeville, Minn., and their children Harrison (12), Hope (11) and Hayden (6); Kevin Regier and his wife Diana of Granby, Colo., and their children Gibson (4) and Karis (2); and Jennifer Regier of Manhattan.
On April 5, The Gathering hosted a celebration service of Mark?s life at the Fox Theater, 518 N. Main in Newton. Following the service, interment was at 3:30 p.m. in Montezuma at Morningside cemetery.
The family has chosen two ministries that Mark loved and asks that donations be made in lieu of flowers to The Gathering Community Church or Victory in the Valley. Please make checks payable to either one and send to: c/o Peterson Funeral Home, 215 N Main St. Newton, KS 67114.
