Mark Dowell AKA “Pops” was a Journey man of HVAC in Raytown, MO for most of his life, and also graced the workforce with his skill set for many years in Gainesville, GA. He was a hard worker, a jack of all trades and possessed the ability to fix almost anything. He loved the water, work, beer and fun BUT most of all he loved his children and loved his grandkids “BIG”! “Pops” never met a stranger, hence his many friends he’s made along the way!

Survivors include, his ex-wife and lifetime friend, Kimberly Krause of Dacula, GA, mother of his children Amber and Brent Dowell, daughter-in-law Rebecca Dowell; and Teresa Barclay of Raytown MO, mother of his son, Tyler Dowell.
A nest of grandchildren, including Zoë, Zion, and Zekai of Buford GA; Devon, Pierce, Jaycelyn and Trace of Hoschton, GA. He also leaves behind his eldest brother, Dennis Dowell and sister-in-law Linda Dowell of Overland Park, KS. His nieces and nephews who loved him dearly include Michelle Dowell of Indepenence, MO, Carli Dowell of Costa Rica, Stephen and Stacie Dowell of Raytown, Mo.
