Mark Alan Wasemiller
At age 59, Mark Alan Wasemiller, entered the presence of his Lord and Savior the morning of April 6th, 2023, during Holy Week.
Mark was born September 13th, 1963, in Spokane, Washington to LaVerne and Darlene Wasemiller where he was raised on a small hobby farm with his three siblings. He attended Central Valley High School and during that time developed his passion for agriculture while part of the FFA program. Mark went on to attend Washington State University (GO COUGS!), where he received his BA in Agricultural Engineering. He later went on to receive his P.E. in Civil Engineering. After graduation he moved to Tri-Cities, Washington and began a career on the Hanford site spanning the next 37 years. Mark was blessed with the birth of 5 children over the next season of life but a new chapter was written when he met and married his steadfast and beautiful wife, Beth. Together, they raised their blended family of 8 children and recently celebrated their 25th anniversary with an amazing trip to Israel.
Mark was deeply committed to serving others through various ministries at Bethel Church including Mens, Middle School, High School, Marriage and Small Group where they were members almost 30 years. If you didn’t find Mark serving in church you could find him perfecting the art of smoking meat, cooking and baking (always making something special for someone else). He was an effortless and eloquent writer, and enjoyed hooting and hollering at anything sports related and developed an amazing knack of retaining sports trivia.
He is preceded in death by his father- LaVerne, and sister- Bonnie. Mark is survived by his wife- Beth, mother- Darlene, Sisters- Laura and Connie (Lee), children: Nick (Gen), Juliana, Brandon, Jacob, Josh, Cody (Tiffani), Sean, and Hannah. Mark and Beth have been blessed with 15 grandchildren.
With grieving hearts, his family celebrates that his pain from cancer is gone, and he is now made whole. They, and many others, will carry the imprint of Mark’s quiet tenderness and wisdom wherever they go. Mark leaves us all with the weighty call to suffer well, forgive no matter what, and show love in acts of service to others.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 15th, 2023 at 3pm in the Bethel Church Auditorium: 600 Shockley Rd, Richland, WA 99352.
Beth and family, we were sorry to learn of Mark’s recent passing. May you know the comfort of our Prince of Peace until you see Him face to face as Mark is now experiencing.
This is such a shock. I worked with Mark at Wave Design for only a short time, but greatly respected him as a fellow engineer and wish I could have got to know him better. My prayers are with his family at this time.
Beth and family, we are so sorry to hear of Mark’s recent passing from this life to the BEST life in Heaven. Some years ago Mark was a faithful note writer to the Benton County Sherriff Department o encourage and pray for them. We are praying for you and all of your family. Some ye

I worked with Mark on the WTP project. Great engineer to work with, respected by all those I know. Awsome Coug.
One of the most intelligent and devoted people I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. Loved the sports banter and competing with him in fantasy sports for many years. I am certain God has welcomed him home; he sure lived in God’s light by serving others.
I am sorry Mark. You led a much-fulfilled life it says. So sorry about Bonnie. I just lost my son Bill Maahs; your first cousin on the same day. You are five years older. Look for him in Heaven please. His mom: Connie Boatsman (Maahs) Lee.
I had the privilege of working with Mark at WTP in the piping field engineering group. He was a strong professional with a compassionate heart. His commitment to his profession was as strong as his commitment to his coworkers. Mark displayed integrity in his daily actions. Though I retired and moved to Florida and we lost contact. He will always be a very positive memory. I am sorry for your loss.
Beth and family,
What a beautiful testimony to Mark’s life. A life well lived. I am sad with you that this earthly journey is finished, and I am also praising God that he is healed and in the presence of His Savior. I will miss seeing his sports shirts sitting a few rows ahead of me on Sunday mornings. Please know I will be praying for you as you find your footing on your new unplanned journey.
I worked with Mark in the HLW at the Hanford VIT plant . He was dedicated to his civil engineering work and waa great to work with.
Mark was a great guy who lived his life well. What rejoicing there must have been in heaven when he entered on April 6th. I pray for each loved one that God will grant you comfort and peace.
You will be missed my cousin! But there are so many good memories you have left us. Be in peace my friend.
