So very sorry to hear that Mark has passed away. I have many fond childhood memories of his kindnesses to me when I visited my father’s office at Murphy Hall, which he shared for several years. I hope your memories of his radiant smile will sustain you during these sad days.

Prayers of thanksgiving for the life of this sweet man and wonderful professor. Prayers for peace for his family who will miss him so!

From Sara Kelly...

I was blessed to have Dr. Holmberg as a teacher. I always talk about your class when talking about music theory. You will be missed by all who knew you.

From Jill Collinson...

I am so sorry to hear of this. Dr. Holmberg was one of my favorite teachers at KU. He had a great sense of humor that made class fun and was a huge encouragement to me when it was difficult. So thankful he was a part of my college experience. RIP

From Mark Arnold...

Not only an excellent musician (which he was), but also a gifted teacher and director. I was fortunate to not only learn about the structure of music in his theory classes, but the true purpose of music as he led our worship.
“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation‬ ‭7:17‬)

From Julie Dunlap...

We are so grateful to have had Mark’s music bring us closer to God for all of these years. May he rest peacefully among the choirs of angels.

From Judy Gilman...

From Sharon D. Learned...

Julie, please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

From Rob Edmiston...

Mark was a wonderfully passionate theory teacher, human, and musician. When he played the organ it made you want to sing as loud as you could sing. He loved talking music with anyone at anytime. The singing in heaven just got a little louder and more vibrant. Take care my friend! Prayers for Mark’s family as they do through this time of mourning, reflection, and celebrating his life.

From Dale Creed...

Julie and the WHOLE family,

Several notes missing now, with a twinkle missed also.
Thank you so much, for sharing Mark with us.

From The Gaus Family...

So sorry for your loss! Mark was a mentor to one of our sons and will be dearly missed. We have belonged to Corpus Christi over 30 years and loved to see him each week. God bless all of you and may he rest in peace.

From Carol Khoury...

“You betcha!” said with a grin and a wink is the signature of Mark that I always remember. In fact, I can’t even picture him without a smile on his face!
May that smile help ease some grief and lead you to the many warm memories I’m sure you have.

From Warren E. Frick...

Julie, I, Carol, Susan, and Marian are so sorry for your loss.

From Charlee Glinka...

Mr. Holmberg was one of my favorite instructors among the music faculty at KU because of his knowledge and his wonderful sense of humor. I still have my McHose and Tibbs sight singing manual and many fond memories from his classes. He was truly a talented and wonderful person. May you find comfort in his memories.

From Nora Clark...

Julie, 2nd Timothy 4:6
You have fought the good fight. You have finished the race. You have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award you on that Day.

Mark ‘s love for church music and the community he enjoyed will stay with me. His dedication was truly inspiring to both Lutherans and Catholics alike! We were fortunate to be blessed with his talent and spiritual gifts.
