Mark was born June 2, 1986 to George Martinez Ibarra and Elizabeth Lynn (Watts) Ibarra in Buffalo. He went to school in Groesbeck from Kindergarten through the eleventh grade, participating in the Groesbeck High School band. His senior year was at Abundant Life Christian School in Galveston County, where he graduated in 2005. Mark was very talented in music, playing drums, guitar and bass, not only in the band, but he also played at church and for his own enjoyment. He enjoyed teaching his children to play even at their young age. In high school, he learned some metal work and afterwards, became a certified welder and inspector, attending school in Houston. He worked for a time for Lide Tank Co., but most of his career in welding was on the coast. Mark loved the beach. Growing up, he enjoyed time spent with his grandmother in Santa Fe, in the sun and on the beach. He was a happy person, always laughing and trying to make those around him laugh. He had cooked for himself from a young boy, if he wanted something in the middle of the night. He loved to make breakfast food, and especially loved Belgium waffles. He and his dad and brother always made spicy crawfish boils when there was a large get-together. He had a close relationship with his all of his grandparents, and in turn, as a father of five, he really loved his children. When he was young, he was taught how to hunt by his Papa Watts and his Dad, and he loved hunting in the woods at Seale, and bow hunting. He loved spending time with his oldest son to begin teaching him about hunting and taking him to the woods to set hog traps. Mark even managed to get his mother in a tree stand this last season. Mark was preceded in death by his grandfather, Porfirio Ibarra; great grandfather, Fred “Papa” Andrews; and his brother, Matthew George Ibarra. He is survived by his children: daughter, Alexandria Robin Ibarra, son, Authur Mathias Ibarra, daughter, Abbey Gail Emma Ibarra, and identical twin sons, Andrew Douglas Ibarra and Mark Anthony Ibarra, all living in Groesbeck; his parents, Pastor George Martinez Ibarra and Elizabeth Lynn Ibarra of Groesbeck; sister, Marybeth Rose Ibarra Roberts and her husband Tommy Reese Roberts of College Station; sister, Michaela Rose Ibarra of Seale; grandmother, Mary Rose (Martinez) Ibarra of Santa Fe; grandparents, Douglas and Mary Watts of Giddings; nieces and nephews: Natalie Reese Roberts and Micah Reese Roberts of College Station; and aunts and uncles and numerous cousins.
