Mark D. Tatlock



Mark D. Tatlock, 65, of Seymour, passed away Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, at his residence.

Born Nov. 16, 1950, in Seymour, he was the son of D. L. “Don” and Betty June Waskom Tatlock, both of whom survive. On Oct. 1, 1971, in Seymour, he married his wife of 44 years, Loretta Jaynes, who survives.

Mark graduated from Crothersville High School in 1968. He was a loyal employee of Home Products International in Seymour since 1973. Whenever they needed anything fixed, they said, “Call Pappy!” Mark was baptized into the Christian faith as a child. His happiest moments were when he, his son and his grandson were fishing.

Neighbors always saw him pulling his red fishing wagon to the Mutton Creek Lake anytime he could get there. He was always generous to anyone — especially any kids fishing. Along with fishing, some of his favorite hobbies included feeding the birds and squirrels daily, attending auctions with his wife and loving to look for treasures at flea markets.

Mark loved tinkering in his garage, especially with his 1985 red truck. He loved the outdoors and working in his yard. Mark was a loyal friend to so many who will miss him, his wit and jokes, and how he always wanted to have fun with people.

Besides his parents and wife, survivors include a son, Scott (Rexanna) Tatlock; grandson, Ethan Tatlock; brothers, Rodney L. (Teresa) Tatlock, Gregory L. (Cindy) Tatlock and Evan G. (Linda) Tatlock; uncles, Robert and Melvin Tatlock; aunts, Shelby Johnson and Deborah Abbott; brothers and sisters-in-law, Greg and Rita Monroe, Nick and Betsy Prewitt, Tim and Kelie Jaynes and Dean and Jody Trapp; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and loving friends and neighbors.

He was preceded in death by his son, Matthew Tatlock; paternal grandparents, Kerry and Marie Tatlock; maternal grandparents, Roy and Ruth Waskom; and four uncles, three aunts and three nephews.

The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Voss Chapel. Burial will be at Riverview Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 3 to 8 p.m. Thursday and from 10 a.m. until time of service Friday.

Memorials may be written to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.
