Mark H. Buelow, 58

Mark Harold Buelow, age 58, of the Twin Cities, formerly of Maple Plain, passed away Thursday, March 17, 2016.

He was born March 27, 1957, in Maple Plain, to Harold and Marie (Guck) Buelow.

Mark had music in his heart, drum sticks in his hands, and an ear for sound that he couldn’t turn off. He loved to coach and mentor girls’ basketball teams. That passion for sports carried over; he loved watching his grandson, Joe, play.

Mark couldn’t have been a more proud “papa,” and that love will carry on with his grandson, Oliver. His three daughters were his pride and joy, and the light of his life, but being blessed with his grandson(s) as “papa” was the piece that made his heart complete.

Mark was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Marie Buelow; and a brother, Dan Buelow.

He is survived by his daughters, Heidi Buelow, Sarah Buelow, and Allyson Buelow; grandsons Joe and Oliver; and siblings Sharon Hafften, Bernie Buelow, and Bonnie (Jeff) Jacobs.

A memorial gathering took place Wednesday, March 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Iten Funeral Chapel in Delano, with a 7 p.m. memorial service.

Arrangements were with the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.
