Mark was born February 19, 1969 in Cherokee, Iowa, the son of Harry and Anita (Bobolz) Mansfield. He was the second youngest of 5 children raised on their acreage outside of Pierson, Iowa. He graduated Kingsley-Pierson High School in 1987.

Mark was the co-owner of AutoSound Solutions in South Sioux City, Nebraska, a business in which he took great pride and devoted so much time to build. When he was not at work, you could find him working on his cabin or helping family and friends with their DIY projects.
Mark was a true jack of all trades with a wealth of knowledge that he patiently shared with his children and grandsons. He doted on his grandsons and took the role of Papa very seriously.
Words cannot express how greatly he will be missed.
Lucky to remember him lovingly are his parents; 2 daughters, Kassandra (Boomer) Klaschen and Caitlin (Chris) Hofer; 2 sons, Ethan Mansfield and Evan Mansfield; 2 grandsons, Carter Hofer and Holden Klaschen; 2 sisters, Nanette Mansfield and LuAnn (Kent) Radford; 2 brothers, Dan (Terri) Mansfield and Matt (Jennifer) Mansfield; 8 nieces and nephews; 4 great-nieces and nephews; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
