El Modena High School - In Memory

** We are moving to a New Version of Alumz. The new site has improved features like groups, events, chat and games. Set up your school before we shut down the old version and we will move over the "in memory" section.

You can sign up with your Facebook account or just on Alumz. Use the Facebook signup if you have a Facebook account.

We want to remember the good times with family and friends who are no longer with us.

The person will show up on the site after we check the entry.

Add a person to the In Memory list.

Also, if you see any invalid information that gets posted, please send an email and we will make the change.

--Mark Bazell (2007)
Found thru a google search in a industry newsletter. I called the company and he apparently died of a heart attack at his work. Delphi Systems. This was the memorium:In memory of Mark Bazell (1951-2007) A familiar face seen at trade shows will no longer be seen. Mark Bazell, Franchise Sales Manager for Delphi Display Systems, passed away suddenly on Feb. 5, 2007. “Big Mark”, as he called himself, or “Bobo” as his friends called him, was known not just for his large size, but his infectious smile, great laugh and love of people and life. Mark had many roles in his life, from bartender, restaurant manager, baseball coach (he worked scout teams for the NY Yankees and helped recruit for California State University, Fullerton), POS salesman, husband, father, grandfather, doggie-daddy, poker player, Delphi salesman and friend. Almost anyone who came into contact with Mark could consider him a friend. When looking to recruit a sales person for Delphi, I saw this teddy bear type guy selling POS (Geac FasFax) at a booth near mine. Almost all of the customers who came into his booth gave Mark a hug. I didn’t want to recruit just a salesman, I wanted someone who could build relationships with customers, someone whom our customers could rely on and trust. Mark was that guy. Mark had a passion for everything he did in life. If a customer would call in with an issue, Mark would personally get involved and stay with the problem until it was resolved. Mark cared. Mark enjoyed people and embraced life. We have lost Mark, but his spirit remains. I feel that I am a better person having known Mark and also feel fortunate to be able to call Mark a friend. Some say the purpose of life is to make the earth a better place from the time you were born to when you leave it. Mark fulfilled his purpose. Rest in peace, Bobo.
