Mark Wayne Childers

June 26, 1962 ~ July 21, 2020 (age 58)


On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, Mark Wayne Childers of Salisbury, NC passed away at the age of 58 at his residence due to lung cancer.


Mark was born on June 26, 1962 in Statesville, NC to Jesse and Barbara Childers. He was a graduate of North Iredell High School. He was a veteran of the US Army.


Mark was a service plumber for over 40 years, including owning and operating a company in Statesville for 10 years!


His pride and joy was his nine month old granddaughter. They were the best of friends since day one. Every morning they would jam out together. Mark was a great father but an even greater “Papaw”.


Mark was preceded in death by his father, Jesse and his mother Barbara. He is survived by his daughter, Samatha Childers, son-in-law, Donovan Romanek, his granddaughter, Serenity Romanek, his brothers, John and David Childers, his sister Linda Vickery, as well as several nieces and nephews.


Mark’s family will announce when memorial services are being held. They would like to thank everyone who gave to Mark’s GoFundMe for memorial services.
