In loving memory of the late Mark Jonathan Scobell who sadly passed away on 8th July 2014.

As a youngster Mark loved the outdoors; hills and rugged countryside were important to him. At 16 Mark moved to London to work, this was unusual for the time and for a town (Newark) where many 16 year olds joined a local factory. At 21 a motorcycle accident left Mark with a bad injury and the start of a life of pain. His love of motorcycles did not diminish as a result of the accident.

Asperger’s Syndrome was another challenge that Mark sought to understand and overcome.

Several people have told me that they learned much from Mark and he helped them to get more from life.

Family flowers only please, if you wish please contribute to one of the charities which were chosen with Mark’s interests in mind.

Memories of Mark; at school doing the lighting for school productions, his yellow Honda 404 super sport motorbike and a trip to Brighton on the back of it, trips to Hampton Court Palace and the Victoria and Albert museum, the metal staircase in the city of London that he helped design when he was an architectural technician, his dreadful landlady in Croydon, Intercity Couriers of Dean Street and he was the first person I knew who had a computer, which I didn't understand at all. Fond memories.

I knew Mark when we worked together at the University. He was a kind and thoughtful person, who was always generous with his time and attention and wanted the best for other people. He was modest about his achievements, but as I got know him, I came to realise how smart and insightful he was about the world. He’d packed a great many adventures into his life before we met and he always ready to learn more and take on fresh challenges. I consider myself very fortunate to have known him.

Among his many great qualities, Mark had a marvellous sense of humour and a capacity to take pleasure in the world just as he found it. When I think of him, it’s the sound of him laughing that immediately comes to mind. He had a great laugh whenever he was happy and that’s how I’ll remember him.

I only knew Mark briefly, some time ago, but he made a lasting impression on me with his quirky cheerfulness and his sheer niceness. I'm elderly, and a mum, and I thought he was a very loveable and likeable person. The world's a poorer place without the likes of him.
