Elwood Comfort

November 7, 1951 — October 23, 2019

On October 23, 2019, Elwood Mark Comfort made his ascent to heaven holding the hand of Jesus. You may have known him as Mark, Dad, Pepaw, or Honey, however you knew him, you know his impact was far reaching and you can feel the impression he left on your life. Mark was born on November 7, 1951, in Bradenton, Florida to Ned and Irma Comfort. In 1973, Mark met his forever sweetheart, Connie Sue Moore, at Olivet Nazarene University. Mark and Connie were married for nearly 46 years. Mark was a devoted father to his two loving children, Wendell Scott (wife Rylan) and Sarah Elizabeth (husband Dan Peterson). He was an adoring Pepaw to his seven grandchildren, Madison, Jacob, Tatum, Kamryn, Elwood, Scarlett, and Wendell. He is also survived by his brother Joseph (wife Jenny) and sister-in-law Sandi. Mark was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Ronald. There is no way to condense Mark’s life into a few short paragraphs. The way he lived his life could never be measured in the ways of the world. Mark was a genuine man who lived without pretense and all of us were touched by his unconditional love, compassion, and goodwill. Mark dedicated his life to serving God in the Church of the Nazarene. He used the gift of his voice to serve in the church choir and praise team. Throughout his life he served on several church boards and was known as “chair-man” at Turning Leaf Church of the Nazarene. Mark always enjoyed attending any sporting event involving his children and grandchildren, some may call him a super fan. Mark had a great affection for the outdoors. The roar of the Black River will always whisper his name. A few things that Mark left us with are: “take a deep breath”, “rub some dirt on it”, “shake it off”, “keep your eye on the ball”, “you will get hurt, you will fall down, the walls are going to feel like they’re closing in on you, but know, it’s going to be alright.” Dad go rest high on that mountain, your labor here on earth was not in vain. We hope to see the angels faces when they hear your sweet voice sing. Services will be held on November 3, 2019 at the future home of Turning Leaf Church of the Nazarene, approximately 3/4 miles North of Camelback Road on the West side of Litchfield Road. Overflow parking will be located at Unlimited Collision and RV, 6030 N. Litchfield Rd.; shuttles will be available. Memorial Reception will begin at 3:30pm, followed by funeral service at 4:30pm. The family requests that in lieu of flowers please send donations to Turning Leaf Church of the Nazarene Building Fund, PO Box 6586, Glendale, AZ 85312.
