Mark Eichenlaub Memorial Sevice
Mark Eichenlaub played for CSI and AWOL in the 50+ Wednesday night league, and managed for a number of years while they played at Coleman and Hartman parks. He continued to do so even after his diagnosis of colon cancer. He maintained his energy and his dental practice for over 4 years by doctoring himself, and worked right up to the day he died, August 20, at home in his favorite chair.
His life celebration will be held at the DAV at 8787 Old Santa Fe, behind the
Loma Vista shopping center, on Saturday Sept. 20, from 2-6 pm. Light
refreshments will be available, as well as a cash bar. Please bring any softball
stories or pictures that you have of Mark."
