Mark Bianchi

Mark Brian Bianchi age 56 of Shelby Township, MI was called home to be with the Lord on November 7, 2020. After a month-long battle with COVID-19, our loved son, husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed along from this side of heaven peacefully.
He was born February 23, 1964 in Mount Clemens, MI, son of the late Judith Fulle and Arthur (Karla) Bianchi. Mark is survived by his five siblings, Denise (Curtis) Cross, Arthur (Laura) Bianchi, Barbara (Jeff) Schrader, Deanna (David) Borkowski and Mario (Gina) Bianchi.

On April 29, 1989, he married the love of his life, Susan Bianchi. Mark pursued his love of cooking and achieved his culinary degree from Macomb Community College. He worked twenty-six years in auto production at FCA , where he never wasted an opportunity to tell his co-workers how Jesus loved them.

Mark was a man after God’s own heart who wholly loved Jesus and eagerly showed God’s love to every person he met. He was the kindest, most humble, positive and generous man who knew no strangers – only friends he had yet to make. Truly the embodiment of God’s selfless love, he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need, one of his wonderful home cooked meals and a big bear hug. Mark fiercely loved his family. He will be greatly missed here on earth by Sue, his wife of thirty-one years; his eldest daughter and son-in-law, Taylor and David Giancola; his two granddaughters, Emery and Paxton Giancola; and his youngest daughter, Satchel Bianchi.

There will be a small memorial service at his church for close friends and family to celebrate Mark’s life and memory.

  1. Honey,
    I am so happy for all the joy you are experiencing now. There must have been a great celebration when you arrived. All your years of dedication and faithfulness to God to have heard: “Well done good and faithful servant.”

    I am proud of the man you became. You put God and your family first. You were full on integrity, dedicated to investing in relationships, quick with a sincere apology and made me feel like the most loved person on earth. I will miss your sparkling eyes, your hugs and holding your hand which fit perfectly over mine.

    Thank you for leading me to me Jesus. He and you have forever changed my life. It is also for this reason that I know I will see you again.

    I love you now and forever,

    • Garnett & Pat Hart

      Dear Sue, Our sincere and deepest sympathy to you and your family. Remembering Mark through the years brings such loving thoughts of what a beautiful person he was , always considered an adopted son. He will be dearly missed, knowing he was greeted with open arms in heaven. May he Rest In Peace.

      you’ve been a part of our family forever. Remembering all the earlier memories Such as football games, holiday dinners and just hanging around and laughing and of course blink blink, blink blink, blink blink (you and jeff know what I’m talking about… LOL). remembering later memories such as children, weddings and holidays. you’ll forever be a part of our family and it’s hard to imagine a world without you in it. you’ll always be a bright star in everyone’s life that you touched… Forever in our hearts❤️

    • Linda Hart-Hammond

      So sorry for your loss Sue I can’t even imagine U2 were meant to find each other and you have always been such a perfect couple ❤️

    • Sue, What a beautiful condolence. love u all, Laura

  2. Mark,
    Thank you for being the man God created you to be. You have been my brother, friend, teacher.
    I know that smile of yours is smiling so bright. You always lit the room up in which you walked into!
    I miss you more than words can say! I didn’t get to say good bye to on this earth and that is the way God intended it to be. The hope that lives in me through our savior Jesus goodbyes are only temporary.
    Until we meet again Mark.
    I love you brother,

  3. Barbara Schrader

    Mark I’m so grateful God chose you to be my brother. You are the reason I chose to be baptized and give my life to the Lord and I will be so grateful for that. Thank for being with me on that very special day! I will miss your daily verse you texted to me. Thank you for loving me and being an incredible brother. You love Jesus so much! I know that you are dancing in the streets of gold in Heaven. That makes me smile. You always had a smile and are so gentle and kind and so soft spoken. Well done faith servant. Thank you for all you done for me and for others. Love your sister Barbara Jean

  4. Mark,

    You were like an older brother to me. The bond we formed at the men’s Church retreat and strengthened over the years will always hold a very personal and memorable spot in my heart! Your daily devotionals would cause me to stop in my daily routine with a smile on my face reading God’s Word and knowing the man behind their sending. My eyes are literally filled with tears as I sit and write this message knowing what a Godly friend you always are. I will miss you so much seeing that Santa beard across the rows of seats at church. Seeing you with Sue and Satchel on Sunday mornings made me smile having a friend like you. I miss you and know we will meet again some day. I’ll be waiting for THAT daily devotional!

    Love you brother ❤️

  5. Deanna- Dave Borkowski

    Truly a warrior for God.Mark made you feel like you mattered, a rare quality we will remember and try to learn from. Ask him a question and get an honest answer.Missing him will not be a strong enough phrase.With all our love we send our brother on a new journey. God will bind us together Love Deanna and Dave

  6. There are no words. I feel honored to have known Mark and we can only hope to live up to his legacy by sharing the warm, attentive energy that he shared with all of us. Sending love from the whole Carter/Zane family.

  7. Mark,

    My Brother from another mother, I still cannot process that You have moved on to Glory. This world is a dimmer place without you in it, but Heaven has gained an awesome Man of God.
    You always asked me how you can pray for Ellen and me. Thank you for always genuinely caring.

    Now You are in Gods presence, praising and worshiping Him.
    Enjoy your reward Mark, Your faith in Jesus has made you free.

    Save a bear hug for me for when we meet again.
    Love- David

  8. Great guy and best friend that I always considered a brother. One of a kind person who touched everyone he met. Always loving, caring and generous. Many great memories and conversations that I will always reflect upon.

    Love you brother,

  9. Garnett & Pat Hart

    Mark, you were our other son, remembering you with smiles ,what a sweet young man you were, and a beautiful husband, father and friend you became. Wish we could of said good bye, but knowing you are in a wonderful place eases the pain .Will miss you, and remember you always in our hearts with smiles, and the joy of knowing you. We love you! May you Rest In Peace!

  10. Mark,

    Thank you for always genuinely caring about how Ellen and I were doing.
    You demonstrated Jesus love for everyone.
    You always asked for any prayer requests, and would remind me that you were still praying weeks later. I will deeply miss your daily scripture txt, your awesome bear hugs and just spending time with you over coffee sharing life.
    Enjoy your reward good and faithful servant.
    Love you Brother,

  11. To dear Sue and the entire Bianchi family, my deepest sympathy and solemn prayers. Your Mark is my cherished brother and steadfast friend. In this time of grief Mark has provided us, by example, the provisions of love and prayer to guide us. His sharing of himself and the love of the Lord is nothing short of agape even thought his modesty would challenge that observation. His constant walk with the Lord has always been apparent to all that were blessed enough to witness and be a part of. His transition to his well earned presents with our Father has to be pleasing to him not because we are grieving his loss but because we are giving thanks and glory to God who he served as one of his most diligent foot soldiers. Mark has linked us together forever because l will never keep you and your family out of my prayers. God bless you and thank you for sharing with us such a righteous man. Glory be to God.

  12. R.I.P my brother you was a very cool and respectable person. My prayers and condolences goes out to the family.

  13. Cari and Doug Kwiatkowski

    Bianchi family,
    We were so saddened to hear about Mark’s passing. Even though we only met him a few times when he picked up Sachel from our house after playing with our daughter Melissa we knew he was a good and decent man. Hope you find peace and comfort knowing he is with god.

  14. Mark

  16. Mark
    When we heard the news of your passing. The boys have been talking about our memories of you. We all agreed, your greatest attribute. Was not, the exceptional athlete that you were & you were exceptional. It was, what a wonderful & positive teammate/person you were. As I told everyone, we were fortunate to have you in our lives. Just by knowing you, you made us better people. You will be missed by all of us. Rest In Peace my friend!

    With Sincere Sorrow,
    David Splitt

  17. Mr.B,
    We miss you so much! You’ve touched us all more than you can imagine and now it’s sadly too late to tell you, but ultimately you’re where you deserve to be. My heart aches with every picture or video I see-I feel like I can’t process that you’re not here anymore. Like so many people have said before, save a hug for me! I can’t hug like you but I’ll do my best to show your family the same love you showed us in their time of sadness. Xoxo

  18. Dan and Mary Ann Baron

    What can we say about Mark, our dear friend. He has impacted our lives in so many wonderful ways; from being Dan’s best friend and accountability partner to the many special times we spent together as couples enjoying each other’s company. Mark was that special kind of person you just wanted to be around. His love, kindness, and faith in Jesus showed through in all he did. We miss him so very much and look forward to our homecoming in heaven.

  19. Clarence Townsley

    Mark was embraced and admired by his teammates from Oakwood Jr. High and East Detroit High School. He was a leader on the field who’s work ethic rubbed off on everyone. He was full of passion and kindness. He was a brother in the Lord and I appreciated his willingness to carry the good news. We were all better to have known .He will be greatly missed.

  20. Dearest Bianchi Family:
    We are related as Godly human beings, and family. We had some special times together over the years, via family gatherings. Always cherished our times together. Please know that the Moseley family is with you all in thoughts and prayers. We know you are in a better place now. Love you.

    Gregg and Kathy (Giancola) Moseley, Gregg Jr. and Janess, and grandkids Aubriana and Asher.

  21. Sue
    Even though we have only known mark for a few short years what a truly wonderful man he was. No matter what he was doing he always took the time to stop and make conversation with not only myself but my children. Now he is back home watching over you with a smile on his face.

  22. There are no words that can describe how wonderful Mark was. He was always smiling and giving. He loved our dear Lord so much that it glowed about him. Mark had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in his life. I’ll never forget Ben’s graduation party when Mark and Satchel came over early to help set up the party. He was there when I needed him the most and then just slipped away without even wanting thanks. That’s how Mark was. Well God knew what a asset you would be in Heaven because He wanted you near him. Till we meet again in Heaven I will always remember your kindness.

  23. My condolences goes out to the family. Mark was the sweetest person I have ever known, he was always smiling. May he rest in Heaven.

  24. Beverly LaTurneau

    Can’t even find the words to tell what a marvelous person Mark was here on earth. He was loving, kind, always ready with a big hug and kiss for his Mother-law. He loved Jesus with a passion and modeled it in all ways of his life. Such a giving person to all. He set an example for all of us to follow. I could not have had a better son-in-law if I had put in an order for him! He was the son I never had. Mark and Susan held wonderful holiday dinners and family times. I will miss him here on earth beyond measure, even though I know he is having a great time with Jesus and I look forward to hugging him again in Heaven.

  25. Sue:

    It is my prayer the Lord gives you the strength, peace and comfort that only He can give at this time. You are blessed to be able to say your husband knew and loved the Lord. Alot of wives cannot say that.
    I’m praying for you and your family.

    Karen Carter

  26. Words are failing me at the moment which is a rarity. I always have something to say because there was always something up for discussion or debate between the 2 of us – mostly because we’re so similar and love to challenge others in an effort to find wisdom and find truth.

    We had our disagreements, as parents and children do, but I always knew I was loved. I will always be fortunate enough to never have a doubt that I had a dad who loved and trusted me enough to always challenge my beliefs, my line of thinking and especially challenge my attitude when it was crappy (even when the occasional cuss word made it’s way out 😬).

    I am broken over the fact that my girls won’t grow up knowing and remembering the giant smile and warm bear hugs. It’s not fair to them and it’s not fair to us that we won’t see you as Papi over the years. I know it’s a joyous occasion when any believer finally meets the arms of Jesus but, lord have mercy, this just sucks. Our family is going to need time to heal and rebuild, much like a family devastated from a sudden tornado, this is painful, shocking and I expected. We all thought life with you this side of heaven would be longer…

    Until we see each other again Papa Bear 💕

  27. Mark,
    I will always remember your helpful advice and spiritual guidance you provided during a tough time in my life. We met at Shepherds Gate church at the Saturday morning men’s prayer group a long time ago. However it seems like yesterday due to your calming and impactful words. It was easy to see that your heart was with the Lord and I am so glad we met.

  28. Condolences to all of the Bianchi family. I was a pal of Mark’s all the way back to Deerfield Elementary School days. His mom and dad were very loving folks as I recall who allowed me to hang out at their house and help me work thru family stuff I didn’t know or understand I was going thru at the time. Great memories. No wonder Mark became the man he was thru their example. Hope you are all well.

    BIG HUGS to you !!!💚💚

    I am so sorry for your loss and am at a loss of what to say. I would like to share with you a poem that my niece wrote.
    Warm Waiting Night by Shawn Marie Kerley
    “Do you miss me?
    Step out into the warm, waiting night,
    Look up to the sky.
    Do you see the sensual stars?
    That’s me, gazing back at you.
    Can you see the mischievous moon?
    That’s me, smiling at you.
    Can you feel the delicate rain?
    That’s me, kissing you.
    Can you sense the gentle breeze?
    That’s me caressing you.
    Do you hear the soft, low rumble of thunder?
    That’s me speaking to you.
    Do you see the lightening?
    That’s me showing you my heated desire.
    Do you miss me?
    Step out into the warm, waiting night.
    Feel my energy move through you, move with you
    And know that I miss you too.”

    Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.

  33. Sue,
    i am so sorry. I’ll miss mark very much. I spent hours and hours with mark on our lunch times at shap. He helped me through the worse time in my life. We had many laughs along with intense conversations. I’m sure you know we were looking forward to getting together again before he went into the hospital. I’ll forever miss that conversation and know that he would have had some wise words to share. I’m still at a loss!

  34. I’m in shock after hearing the news of mark’s passing, We have been friends for so many years we met in 1985 when i got a job with him at chrysler mopar. He was the chef there, & we had many fun times working together. Years later i started a new job @ shap & i was scared too death on my first night there. Luckily i was placed in marks area, & first break he stopped by my job & asked if my name was tami, i was so happy to know my friend worked there, He took me under his wing from then on & introduced me to everyone in his area. I was so blessed to be in this group , i felt welcome from the first meeting. We continued to work together through out the plant until 2009 & i took the buy-out offered. We had many talks throughout those years & i always knew he put his wife & kids first. I knew he loved them so much, and always wanted the best for them. He talked of meeting his wife, her being his boss at one time but he loved her, & his concern for his sister that had thyroid issues, i also have problems with that but not quite so severe. Thankfully all is well, he must of said alot of prayers & they were answered. He was a good man & lived his life following the good book & im sure the best is yet to come for him. God bless him & I’m sure he”ll keep a watch over his family as always. Much love to all.

  35. I am so saddened to learn of Mark’s passing and distressed that I didn’t spend the time to know him more as a friend and brother in Christ. A radiant soul who was always kind and funny. I’ll remember him from Men’s retreats and our talks about life’s challenges and persevering by faith in the ultimate authority of our Lord.

    He gets to know God for eternity and the rest of us are left with good memories of the wonderful man he was. I will miss him

  36. Mark was a light unto many. He had great faith in Jesus. It was a great pleasure to share his company and speak to him about our Lord. He taught me many things. I am deeply sorry for your great loss. However I must tell you something you already know, Mark is undoubtedly in the arms of our savior where he always wanted to be. Thank you Mark for your loving way and your kindness. I love you my brother God Bless

  37. So sorry to hear about mark he was such a great guy he will be missed.prayers to all who knew him.sincerely sue lindahl
