Mark Calvin Babcock

In Loving Memory
Mark Babcock, our loving son, father, brother and friend to many passed away peacefully in his sleep Sunday night, February 6, 2022 after a difficult bout with Covid. Mark was born October 4, 1963 in Salt Lake City Utah to Calvin and Annette Babcock. Mark was raised in Murray Utah and spent many happy years growing up with his family and many friends in the Vine Street neighborhood. Mark loved sports and played on many little league and church teams. He learned many skills in scouting with his Dad Cal as his scout leader and earned his Eagle Scout Award. He loved his happy growing up years in the South Cottonwood 9th Ward. Mark graduated from Cottonwood High School and served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the North Dakota and Houston Texas areas.
Mark married Julie Ahlberg and had 5 wonderful children together that he loved and cherished with all of his heart. Mark worked for his grandfather's business, Les Olson Company for his entire career. After living and working in the Salt Lake Area he and Julie moved their family to St. George where he was a pioneer for the company in the southern Utah area and helped bring sales and service growth to that part of the state. Mark and Julie later divorced and Mark moved to Utah County where he helped the company grow the Managed Print Division.
Mark aka "dodgermarky" enjoyed traveling to new places and with his love of sports he combined many memorable trips with his family to attend BYU games and of course his LA Dodgers. He was a true and loyal fan to his teams. Mark was so fun to be around and always in the know on the latest sports developments. His genuine love of the game and people combined for a perfect combination of making friends and easy conversation. Mark's greatest happiness was to be with his family who will miss him until they meet again.
Mark is happily reunited with his infant son Trevor Mark Babcock, who preceded him in death. Mark is survived by his children, Alexandrea Stone (Matt), Danielle Gunter (Sean), Zachary, Travis and Courtney, his parents, Calvin and Annette Babcock, sisters Leslie Stahle (Scott), Tammy Peck (Greg) and his brother Chris Babcock. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Addie, his Australian Shepherd will miss riding on the front seat of his truck with him. Mark was loved!
