Mark Sems Obituary

With heavy hearts, we share that Mark Sems passed away on November 8, 2023, surrounded by his loving family and friends.

Mark was born in Holdrege, Nebraska, on November 13, 1962, to Ray Sems and Lana Doll. He then spent the majority of his years in Colorado, where he worked in the construction business as a heavy equipment operator, a level of skill that he was proud of, and we of him.

Survivors include his partner Beth Swan, Sherri Qualls who was the mother of his children and with who he shared a life-long bond until the very last day. His three children; Matthew (Katy) Sems, Rochelle (Jayson) Caton, and Rebecca Sems. As well as his siblings; Brian (Kim) Sems, Max (Stephanie) Sems, Debbie (Winston) Allart, Joe (Carol and family) Bunton, John (Amber and family) Bunton, and Mark (Karen and family) Mayfield. Nephew; Ben Sems. Nieces; Crystal (Tom) Wagner, Ashlynn Sems, and Brooke Sems. Grandsons; Keenan Sems, Maxon Sems, Abel Caton “his little fishing buddy” and a precious granddaughter; Regan Caton. As well as numerous other family members who he loved dearly, and called often. All of whom share a special bond with him, that is just theirs.

He was preceded in death by many, but most notably his parents, Ray Sems, Lana, and Burel Doll. We know they welcomed him into heaven with open arms.

To know him and love him was a gift as he was very caring and thoughtful. His sense of humor will truly be missed. As the sorrow will lessen over time and the laughter will resume, will do our best to answer a few more Jeopardy questions correctly, make a perfect pot of green chile, and fish every chance we get!

While we would have loved even one more day with him, we know that he is in a peaceful place with a restful heart, and we will someday get to see him again.

In lieu of flowers, please embrace a loved one who you may miss, and share just how much you love them.

A celebration of life will be held on June 1, 2024, for those who would love to share a story or two, about what he meant to you.
