      Obituary

      Mark Joseph Bernasek passed away on Nov 14 2015. He was 56 years old at the time of his death. He was born in Lincoln on August 26, 1959 to Ervin Joseph and Carol Catherine (Naber) Bernasek. Mark was baptized and confirmed at St Johns Lutheran Church in Ohiowa. He was raised on the family farm three miles west of Milligan. He attended Milligan Public School from Kindergarten through 12th grade.

      After graduating from Milligan High School in 1977, he attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He graduated in 1986 with a BA in Geography. From 1982 to 1986 he attended graduate school at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln achieving a master's degree in Geography/Cartography/Geo Processing. From 1986 to 1998 Mark was employed as a cartographer for the National Imagery and Mapping Agency in Washington DC. From 1998 to 2005 he worked for BAE SYSTEMS in Washington DC providing technical and process systems training to federal government employees.

      In 2005 he returned to Nebraska to be near family and to help his mother whose eyesight was failing. From 2005 to 2008 he was employed as an HR training assistant for Veyance Corporation (Continental Contitech) in Lincoln. For the last seven years Mark processed storm claims losses for Farm Bureau Property & Casualty Insurance in Lincoln.

      Mark's fascination and love of geography and history took him abroad several times. He was particularly intrigued with his family's origins in Germany and Czechoslovakia. During his life he made several trips to Europe pursuing these interests. Mark was an avid cyclist and spent many hours cycling, being familiar with all the bike trails in Lancaster County. And Mark thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his friends. With his mom's diminishing eyesight, Mark saw to it that her business and personal affairs were being taken care of. Mark was dedicated to his mom and would often drop in and surprise her with her favorite treats or they would go out to enjoy their favorite restaurants.

      He is survived by his mom Carol Bernasek of Lincoln, his sister Jacqueline of Boise, and nephew Ian also of Boise, aunt Marilyn Morden of Lincoln and his friends. He was preceded in death by his father Ervin and his grandparents and aunt, Doris Naber.

      Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home on 4040 A St in Lincoln with Rev. Eric Lesher officiating.
