Class of 1991
Mark Stokes, 36, of the Hopewell community, was pulled from the Gulf of Mexico about 3:38 p.m. Saturday by the Panama City Beach Police Department’s beach and surf unit and transported to Bay Medical Center where he passed away about 2 a.m. Monday, April 19,2010.
A creative, independent freelance artist, Mark Stokes' ability to manipulate color and attention to detail are mirrored on some of Covington County’s most recognizable landmarks. The Covington Arena sign, the murals of Mendoza’s Mexican Restaurant, and mascot-embellished gym walls in countless high school throughout the county are just a few of his many creations.
His dad, Charles E. Stokes, said he and his wife were proud of their son’s actions. He was a very giving person. The whole situation is incomprehensible. He always wanted to make us proud.
