Mark Vos

Mark N Vos died on May 12th, 2013, after a long battle with heart disease. His life was claimed by cardiac arrest at the age of 58.

Mark spent 40 award winning years in the radio business with many different radio stations. He was an Iowa radio celebrity. Many remember him as one of “those guys in the morning”. He was dubbed the “best voice in Iowa radio”.

Mark had a passion for baseball. He played his first game at the age of 7 in Otley, Iowa in 1961. His little league team still remains the only little league team to win the championship in Pella, Iowa. Mark was a life-long St. Louis Cardinals fan. He has passed that loyalty on to his children. He also had a passion for music. He played bass guitar with bands Jif and the Choosey Mothers and Snakes in the Hay. He took great pride in a CD he recorded of his own music with Snakes in the Hay titled “Postcard from the 70’s”.

Mark was survived by his children: Christopher (Kate) Vos, Amber Vos and Erik Vos; his grandchildren Anthony, Holland and Evan Vos; and his best friend and partner, Cindi Hollings.

He was predeceased by his parents, Nelson and Gertrude Vos and his brother, David Vos. Mark will be cremated and per his wishes, a private family service will be held at a later date.
