Born March 18, 1956 in Canton, Ohio, Mark was the son of the late Charles and Freda (McCune) Spillman. Mark was a passionate grain farmer and spent many hours on his family farm. He also enjoyed pulling his antique John Deere tractor, but his biggest joy was watching his boys play in their sports. He made sure that he never missed their activities as they were growing up.

On June 28, 1980, Mark married his wife, Wendy (Yoder) who survives. Also surviving are his sons, David (Katie) Spillman, Matt (Jenn) Spillman and Steven (Courtney) Spillman all of Bolivar; his grandchildren, Logan, Riley, Avery, Dalton, Savannah and Ethan; and his brothers, Kirk (Lori) Spillman of Zoar and Eric (Nancy) Spillman of Bolivar.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, August 7, 2022 from 4 to 7 PM, and one hour prior to the funeral service in the Geib Funeral Home at Dover.

I loved taking care of Mark, he was the resident everyone loved. I loved coming into work and seeing the grin on his face.

Mark and his family have always been in my heart. they were wonderful neighbors to my mother Ethel Duerr. Mark would check in to see her and Mom was always invited to their family gatherings. She enjoyed seeing the boys growing up and Mark going with the tractor to the field to work. He and Wendy were busy with their lives, but always had time to stop and say hello. Mark, rest in peace and to Wendy and the boys I send my love. Joanne Duerr Sater

Our hearts cry out to Jesus for Spillman's loss of Mark Spillman. He and I had some great times and am proud to have known him and all the spouses of his brothers Eric and Kirk. As Patricia is fighting advanced Parkinson's disease prevents us from much travel we are thinking and praying for you all. Mark had many great qualities... refusing the Jackson basketball coach saying we are not losers, great football player there, and his love of all things Spillman, Granddad and his Mom's cousin's, his passion for his wife and family, and his farming. Great man Mark may you enjoy heaven. Love Jeff and Patricia Hoon

So sorry for your loss. I always like to talk to Mark at the tractor pulls. He was always up beat and had a smile on his face. He didn’t say a lot, but when he talked you listened, very intelligent and down to earth guy. So sad…….

So sorry to the Spillman family for your loss!??


Kevin Harold posted on 8/4/22

I have always appreciated Mark's directness, leadership, humor and the way he presented himself to us newbies at Stark Truss. He had that kind facade that somehow also communicated "do not poke the bear". The more I got to know him the more I respected him.

So very sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers

Jim Tuttle posted on 8/4/22

So sorry to hear about Mark. I played basketball with Mark and Kirk in their backyard and on the JMHS team. Our team even had a weekend retreat to the Spillman farm in central Ohio. He was always fun to be around. I'm also not surprised that his family is athletic since Mark was such a good player. My prayers are with his family.


Dale & Martha Garrett posted on 8/4/22

Our love and prayers go out to Wendy and family. He is way too young. Praying God’s grace over all of you.


Ken Simon posted on 8/4/22

Wendy, I am just in sort of a shock, don't know how too explain it, but I always viewed Mark as too strong for anybody or anything to harm him. I always have loved you and your family and you can be sure that my prayers for peace and comfort for you and your family are in full force!!! Many memories going through my mind. Love you and peace to you.

My condolences ate to marks family. I've known Mark from working at the inn. He was great man. His smile brightened up the room. He will be missed. Rip Mark.

My first memory of Mark was in April of 1987 when he came to Broken Arrow Oklahoma to pull out all the equipment from the Stark Truss plant that I worked at. He was a make it happen kind of guy that I had deep respect for the first time I met him. You either got after it or you better get out of his way. I was fortunate to be able to spend many times after that first meeting with Mark and his awesome family. Working together and playing softball together in the annual Stark Truss Company tournament and eating a lot of Wendy's patented chocolate chip cookies with a big glass of milk were my fondest memories. The cookie story is my favorite. I was at their house and Wendy had just baked a batch of cookies. We all got our 1st helping of them and stuffed ourselves. I went back for seconds and thought everyone else was done so I took the rest of the cookies. I went back in the living room with a pile of cookies and Mark looked at me and said that that looked like a good idea. He started to the kitchen and I had to tell him I got the rest of them. He started laughing because he could tell I was really embarrassed but that did not stop him from politely telling me to hand them over. Kary and I extend our thoughts and prayers to all the Mark Spillman family. He was one of a kind and will be missed by us all. Don and Kary Groom
