Mark Bradley Knafla, 64, St. Cloud
November 7, 1950 - December 25, 2014
Mark Bradley, 64, passed away December 25th after a prolonged illness. Christmas Day was a fitting time for Mark to experience God’s “peaceful release” as he shared his strong faith with everyone he came in contact with. All who knew Mark loved his kind spirit, gentle soul, compassion for others, big smile and wit.
Mark was born November 7th, 1950 to Louis F. and Lucille M. Knafla and was a lifetime resident of St. Cloud. He graduated from St. Cloud Technical High School where he won a scholarship for gymnastics. Mark worked for the City of St Cloud’s horticultural department for a time and was also a licensed barber.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Louis L. Knafla. He is survived by his sisters – Jane (Gary) Schwankl of Centennial CO, Lynn Knafla and Beth Nordmeyer – both of Minneapolis.
The family will hold a private memorial service.
