Mark was born March 6, 1962 in Chariton, Iowa to Garry and Janet Throckmorton. He married Janeen Rainey in 1999 in Des Moines and to this union was born one son, Ian, in 2009. Mark was the most patient and loving Dad and Ian was the joy of his life. Mark was a hard worker all of his life, starting at the age of 14. He had various jobs but his last 20 + years was with Contractor’s Rental in Des Moines.

Mark loved to fish, especially in Canada with his Dad, brother and uncle and ice fishing in Minnesota with his buddies. He also enjoyed auto racing and Iowa Cubs Baseball games.

Mark is survived by his son Ian, his parents, Garry and Janet Throckmorton of Chariton, his brother, Michael (Laurie) Throckmorton of Ankeny and many aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of friends.

Mike and Laurie were his two best friends and it kept Laurie busy trying to keep him towing the line.

Memorial contributions may be made to the family for Ian’s college education fund. Online condolences will be welcomed at

Mark loved life, had many friends and would do anything for anybody. He will be missed by all. Forever there will be a pain in our hearts and a missing link in our family.
