Mark Burrow, 24, of Abilene Texas, died May 1, 2021 as a result of injuries sustained when hit by a vehicle involving a drunk driver. We know that Mark is now safe in the arms of our Lord and Savior in our forever Heavenly Home.

Mark was born in Abilene, Texas to Janet Margiotta Holder and Tommy Burrow on October 3, 1996.  Mark loved spending time with his family and friends.  He had a special bond with his two younger brothers, Nick and Zack, whom he loved dearly.
