STERLING – Mark O. Gaumer, 48, of Sterling, died Saturday, June 7, 2014.

He was born on Aug. 3, 1965, in Sterling, the son of Robert Owen and Bonnie Sue (Wilsey) Gaumer. Mark was a 1983 graduate of Sterling High School and had worked as a sheet metal worker. His son was his life, and Mark loved nature and was a kind and giving man who would help anyone in need.

Surviving is his son, Asher Gaumer; his mother, Bonnie S. Gaumer, of Sterling; his sister, Kimberly (Keith) Dirks of Sterling; his uncles: Dave (Peggy) Gaumer of Dixon and Wells “Ronald” Wilsey of Blue Lake, California; his nephew, Matthew Dirks; and his niece, Katerina Dirks.

He was preceded in death by his father.

A gathering of friends and family will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesday at McDonald Funeral Home in Rock Falls, followed by the memorial service at 11 a.m. The Rev. Dalmus Meeks will officiate, with burial to conclude at Riverside Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in his memory for his son Asher would be appreciated.
