Mark Patrick Westrich

August 8, 1947 — March 8, 2024

Boulder City

Mark Westrich, 76, of Boulder City, NV passed away of natural causes on March 8, 2024 in Las Vegas, NV.  He was born on August 8, 1947 in Dallas, TX to Julius Noel (Duke) and Ingrid Westrich.

Mark is survived by his wife of 57 years, Cathy Stevens Westrich, and children Karen (Eric) Samuelson and Shannon (Tony) Costa, and his sister, Mary, and brother, Carl.  Mark was a very proud grandfather of two grandchildren, Julia and Alison Brown

Mark attended San Ramon High School in Danville, CA, and then served in the Vietnam War in 1967. He received two purple hearts while in service.  Upon his return, he received his associates degree from the Richard Bland college, an extension of Williams & Mary in Petersburg, VA.

As a husband and father, he provided unwavering support for his family.  His generosity and kindness touched the hearts of everyone he encountered, whether it was offering a helping hand to a friend in need or providing words of encouragement to his children. 

Mark had many hobbies including fishing, scuba diving, wood working to make toy trucks for the VFW, and building kit cars back in the 70s. He loved the outdoors, especially any activity near or on the water.

Services will be held Monday, April 8th, at 8:40 am in the chapel at the Southern Nevada Veterans Cemetery in Boulder City, NV.  Arrangements are made by Star Mortuary. 

The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the Veterans of Foreign Wars post 36 in Boulder City.
