Mark Christopher Stapleton, 49, Altoona, died unexpectedly Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, at his home.

Born Oct. 7, 1970, in Huntingdon, he was the son of Joyce A. Entrekin, who preceded him in death in 2015, and Jeffrey C. Stapleton, who preceded him in death in 2016.

He is survived by two sons, Brant Barnes of Ohio and Colton Stapleton, Mount Union.

Also surviving are sisters, Brandie Foster, Mapleton, Heather Stapleton, Mount Union, and Alicia Arnold, Mapleton, and a brother, Corey Swope of Mount Union.

Mr. Stapleton was a wandering soul who didn’t like to stay in any one place for too long.

His family will mourn his passing privately.

Anyone wanting to remember him need only to think of one of the many stories he liked to tell, and smile.
