Mark Hulan Sumrall, age 69, laid down the working tools of life on Thursday, February 16, 2023, in La Marque, Texas. Mark was born August the 3, 1953, to Paul Hulan and Johnnie Mae Sumrall in Texas City, Texas.

Mark graduated from La Marque High School in 1971 and enlisted in the United States Navy where he served his country as a corpsman. Once out of the Navy, he was accepted into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers apprentice program, following in his father's footsteps as an electrician.

He was also a proud member of the United Steel Workers 13-1, where he served as union committee co-chairman with longtime friend George Perry. Mark will be remembered as a fantastic mentor and coach to all who knew him with a passion for teaching electrical and general industrial safety.
