Mark Roy Forbrook was born October 22, 1966, to Louie and Judy (Fixsen) Forbrook in Sleepy Eye. He was baptized and confirmed in Zion Lutheran Church in Morgan where he was a lifelong member.

After graduating Mark worked as an accountant in Glenwood and Montivideo. He returned to the family farm in 1993, farming with his family until his death. That same year he began his career at Dick’s Sport Center doing everything from shop work, to sales, and accounting. He moved to the original Forbrook homestead in 2008.
An avid sportsman, Mark especially enjoyed fishing, as well as hunting deer and pheasants. He loved sports. He was a huge fan of Minnesota athletics, often watching multiple events at the same time. With this in mind the family invites you to wear your favorite team apparel to the visitation.
