Obituary for Mark Mixon

POTEAU – Mark Mixon, 62, was born in Poteau Jan. 24, 1961. He passed from this life on April 29, 2022, at his home on the Mixon family farm.

Mark was property manager for Fairview Farms. He loved horticulture and spent his days creating beautiful gardens that will continue to live on. He fiercely loved his family and his French Bulldogs.

Mark is survived by his wife, Darali Mixon, parents Lois and Jim Mixon, all of the home on the family farm. One brother, Mike Mixon, of Poteau, mother and father-in-law, Bob and Kay Bowman of Heavener, sister and brother-in-law, Bob and Sara Bowman, of Poteau, Jennifer and Chad Ritter of Summerfield. Aunts Linda Mixon Hickman, of Villa Rica, Georgia, Gino and Carolyn Uccellini, of Bella Vista, Arkansas, Uncle Mickey Mixon and wife, Kim, of Poteau; numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved dearly.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Tom and Urna (Slim) Turman, paternal grandparents, Harry and Rose Mixon, and beloved aunt, Sandy Turman Hiller. He lost his beloved French Bulldog, Boo, Jan. 9, 2022.

The family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from the community. Your prayers, visits, calls, texts, food, flowers, have all been greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

A private Celebration of Life for the family will be held on a later date, with his dear friend, Phil McGhee, officiating.
