Mark Alen Lantz

February 15, 1957        December 12, 2021

Mark Alen Lantz died on Thursday December 9, 2021, at Waterview Woods Nursing Home in Eveleth. Mark was born on February 15, 1957, in Hibbing, MN, to Bert and Marie (Hardy) Lantz. Mark graduated from Hibbing High School in 1975. He married Shirley Radika on February 19, 1977.  Mark was larger than life and one of a kind. You couldn’t go anywhere in Hibbing without him knowing at least one person. His work ethic was well known. Anything he did he gave 150% and he instilled that work ethic in his kids. Mark worked at his family-owned business MC Supply and in 1998 began his career at Ranger GM. Over the 22-year span of working at Ranger, he went from being a salesman on the floor to the General Manger--an accomplishment that made him extremely proud. Mark’s personality and charm were what made him so good at his job and he would say he “could sell ice to an Eskimo.” He always treated his customers with respect and kindness and they in turn respected and remained loyal to him. Mark and Shirley, his wife of almost 45 years, enjoyed going on trips and riding their Harley’s

together. You would never find Mark without Shirley by his side.

Mark was preceded in death by his mother Marie Lantz (Hardy) and son Casey Lantz.

He is survived by his father Bert Lantz, wife Shirley (Radika) Lantz, daughter Theresa (Scott) Eades, grandchildren AnnMarie and Francis Eades, brother Currie (Sharon) Lantz, and several nieces and nephews.

In lieu of a funeral there will be a Celebration of Life for Mark from 1-4pm, with a time of sharing at 2:00 pm, Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the Silica Community Center, located at 1659 Hwy 73, Silica Township.  Arrangements are with the Dougherty Funeral Home of Hibbing.
