SOUTH BEND - Mark Buechler, formerly of South Bend, Indiana, and Phoenix, Arizona, was born on August 23rd, 1949, in Huntingburg, Indiana, and died October 5th, 2017, in his home in Yucaipa, California. He is survived by his spouse, Beth Haley, his son, Shane Buechler, Shane's girlfriend, Haleigh Newidouski, his stepdaughter and grandsons, Shannon, Nicholas, Jonathan, Joseph Coleman, his two sisters, Mary Kapsa, and Sue Gusman, niece, Eve Gill, and nephew, Steven Kapsa, plus beloved aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Mark graduated from South Bend Washington High School in 1967 and the University of Notre Dame in 1971, and would later work at Empire and Motorola in Arizona. After the birth of his son in 1994, he dedicated himself to being a full-time dad, a job in which he had no equal. He loved his son more than anything in the world, and taught him about so many things in life, and gave Shane everything he needed or could ever ask for. He loved sports and fishing, and even with a knee injury he received in high school, ran almost 200,000 miles over the course of his life. He was a Catholic and gave his time to helping others at the Interfaith Community Support foodbank in Yucaipa. His kindness and gentle nature left the world a far better place than when he entered it, and the patience and love and support that he gave to his son has forever shaped the course of Shane's life in the best possible way. He will be profoundly missed by his family, but his legacy and goodness will always have a place in their hearts.
