Mark Alan Brinkley, was born on February 13, 1959 at Sheppard Air Force Base, Wichita Falls, TX to Glenn (Max) and Shirley Montague Brinkley.

Mark married his high school sweetheart, Sherry Phillips, on March 6, 1982. After 37 years of marriage his love for her and his unique ways flirting with her never faded.

Mark lived a life of generosity and was known for his love for helping kids, coaching football, and his big bear hugs. Every Saturday Mark could be found sitting on his couch watching his beloved Longhorns. Mark loved to fish and spent many weekends catching crappie with his kids at Lake Kickapoo.

Any given day he could be found in his overalls sitting in his lawn chair along the fence line of a ball field or basketball court watching them play.
