Mark Leland Eide was born February 9, 1960 in Yankton, South Dakota to Leland and Gaye (Schenk) Eide.  He was baptized at Bethlehem Church in Irene, SD and later confirmed at Calvary Church in Irene in 1975.  Mark graduated from Irene High School in 1978 and then received his Plumber’s Degree from Mitchell Vocational Technical in 1980.  Mark married the love of his life, Kimberly Huntley on October 11, 1986.  He was devoted to his wife and four children and was so proud of their many accomplishments.  Mark worked for various plumbing contractors and in 1991, he started his own business, Eide Plumbing.  Mark was a very busy plumber doing residential work and providing plumbing services for many apartment complexes, some for over 23 years.  He was loved by all he worked for.  You had to be ready for a visit if he was working for you or if you just ran into him somewhere.  If by chance you needed a light bulb changed or some other little task while he was doing your plumbing, he would take care of that too.  If Mark wasn’t working, you could find him fishing or hunting with his friends or his brothers.  Or maybe working on one of the six vehicles he kept in running order for the family.  Mark enjoyed camping, cooking, especially Dutch oven cooking, and he cleaned and cooked everything he hunted and fished.  Another passion was restoring old things, including a 1963 Corvair and a 1967 Harley Davidson Sportster.  Mark was incredibly patient and very kind.  He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and lived his faith.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Kimberly Eide of Yankton; four children: Caitlin Eide, Jaidan (Chris) Dohma, Ethan Eide and Hanna Eide, all of Yankton; eight brothers and sisters: Randy (Becky) Eide of Sioux Falls, Tim (Kim) Eide of Centerville, SD, Lori (Todd) Knutson of Utica, SD, Susan (Mike) Hanson of Lee’s Summit, MO, Dave (Cathy) Eide of Watertown, SD, Angela (Earl) Dell of Frankfort, IL, Greg Eide of Irene, and Janelle (Joe) Sees of Avon, SD; many nieces and nephews; and his black lab, Remi.

Mark was preceded in death by parents: Gaye on August 11, 2012 and Leland on November 16, 2020.

    I am saddened to hear Mark has left this earth. I went to school with him, we both graduated in 1978. He was always full of humor. I remember his Corvair he drove in high school and his many other cars. He will be missed. I’m very sorry for your loss. Dan Anderson

    Words can not express how sorry we are for this loss. When they tribute love to be patient and kind I think they were talking about Mark Eide.
    He lived it that way as long as we knew him.
    RIP buddy! You will be missed.

    Mark was our family plumber. My nephew loved when Mark had to come and fix something because he would have a million questions for Mark. While trying to get the job done, he would answer all of my nephews questions and even show him what he was working on. Mark was so kind and patient, he will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies to his family.
