His parents were Lilyann Parsons Peterman, Tallahassee, FL and the late Thoms Leonard Peterman of Americus, GA. At the time of his passing, he was a devoted caregiver and sole provider to his wife who is fighting cancer. 

He grew up in Americus, GA where he was an Eagle Scout, a member of First Baptist Church, played trumpet and french horn.

Mark became a skilled entrepreneur and expert in aircraft valuations. He formed Collateral Verifications, Inc. in 2004 after Iraq. Eventually he joined up a partnership, Collateral Valuations LLC where he won global clients with his knowledge and fairness. He enjoyed his work. Among other services, he was an expert witness in numerous aviation court cases. He was proud that he knew so much he couldn’t be stumped.
