Mark Froehlich of Aurora, Colorado passed away June 8, 2024 of natural causes. He was born in 1956 in Chicago, Illinois to Alberta Froehlich and R. J. Murphy.

He was preceded in death by sisters Michelle Froehlich and Virginia Froehlich.

 

Mark was a US Navy veteran, and worked as a nurse at the VA hospitals in Denver and Johnson City TN. The majority of his career in counseling and nursing was spent helping his fellow veterans.

 

Mark was also a talented artist in several mediums. He was most prolific in oils and watercolors. He also sculpted in wood, clay and stone. He was an accomplished woodworker, building furniture, clocks, and picture frames in his garage shop.

 

Mark is remembered for his caring personality, sense of humor and quick wit, and love of the natural world that he expressed in his art. His sense of adventure led him to travel extensively in the US and Europe.

 

Mark’s service will be at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver. He is sorely missed by his loving family.
