Mark was born on the 4th of July, 1961 in Carroll, Iowa. Mark was the son of James and Joleen (Hinners) Heinrichs. He graduated from Kuemper Catholic High School in 1979; where he played on the state golf and basketball teams. Mark continued his education at Gateway Electronics Institute earning a degree in Information Technology. After school he moved to Washington D.C. where he worked 14 years for the Associated Press as a Senior Communication Manager. His career advanced, and in 1999 he began working for the Washington Post where he held multiple management positions in their IT Department. In 2008, wanting a change, new scenery and to get out of the big city, Mark moved to Reno, Nevada. He partnered with his brother Kurt in a landscape and design company called H & H Landscape. He loved being close to family members living nearby and building the business into one of the most premier landscaping companies in the area. Mark could light up the room with his presence and was always known for his bright smile, booming voice, infectious laugh and endless energy. He loved his family more than anything and treasured his annual fishing trips with his mom, dad and brothers every year in Canada. He had an adventurous spirit and loved to travel, experiencing new cultures and people everywhere he went. He had a passion for music, loved playing his electric guitar, and was always the life of the party. Mark was loved by all and made everyone feel special. People loved being surrounded by his vibrant, optimistic personality! Left to celebrate his life is his mother, Joleen Heinrichs of Carroll; his siblings Lori (Jack) Burns of Algona, IA, Doug Heinrichs (Fiancé Jen Dennis) of Reno, NV, Kris (Sara) Heinrichs of Sleepy Eye, MN, Kurt Heinrichs (Fiancé Sheelah Golliglee) of Reno, NV, Beth (Craig) Johns of Reno, NV, and Rachel Heinrichs of Des Moines. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins and a work crew that loved him like family. Mark also had a close relationship with Sophie Rahimi and deeply loved her and her two sons, Ashkaan and Sherwin. Mark was preceded in death by his father, James Heinrichs, his grandparents, Victor and Viola Hinners and Lawrence and Mary Heinrichs, as well as several uncles and his cousins Mitchell Hinners and Jeff Heinrichs.
