Mark Lee Diedrich, 62, of Hollywood, MD passed away on January 21, 2023 at home with his loving family at his side.

He was born on April 2, 1960 in Annapolis, MD, to the late Karl Raymond Diedrich and Mary Alice (Turner) Diedrich.

Mark is a 1978 graduate of Gwynn Park High School.  On November 23, 1979, he married his beloved wife, Deborah L. Diedrich in Brandywine, MD. Together they celebrated over 43 wonderful years of marriage. He was part of the Local 77 for Maryland Operating Engineers Union for many years. Later he went on to open his own excavating business, MDB Excavating. Mark loved being on the open road riding his motorcycle, especially his 1954 Vincent Motorcycle that he restored himself. For his 25th. wedding anniversary his wife gifted him a Harley Fat Boy, which he also enjoyed riding. His family enjoyed going to Myrtle Beach every year at least once, for Bike Week.  When he wasn’t riding his motorcycle he would be riding dirt bikes or on the water with his race boat “Dirty Red.” Mark was very handy and could fix just about anything, he remarked that “his hands were touched by God.”  He enjoyed spending time with his family and dogs, Remington and Izzy.
