Jan. 8, 1959 - July 4, 2013

ALEXANDRIA, Ind. — Mark E. Dinehart, 54, of Alexandria, died July 4, 2013, at Community Heart and Vascular Hospital in Indianapolis after a brief illness.

Mark was an avid sports fan and especially enjoyed watching the Chicago Clubs, IU basketball, Indianapolis Colts and NASCAR. However, he was the number #1 fan of his sons, Derek and Donnie, when they played baseball for the Alexandria Tigers. Mark’s quick wit and fun sense of humor will be sadly missed by many.

He was preceded in death by his father in 1987; his mother in 1996; brother, Duane Dinehart in 2002, father-in-law, John Hueston in 2007; brother-in-law, James Hueston in 1996; and his favorite four-legged companion, “Ginger.”

Services will be 1 p.m. Monday in the First Christian Church, 215 W. Berry St., Alexandria, with Pastor Julia Bratton officiating.

Interment will follow in Park View Cemetery in Alexandria.

Friends may call at Owens Funeral Home, 412 N. Harrison St., from 3 to 8 p.m. Sunday or at the church after noon on Monday prior to the service.
