Mark was born February 10, 1957 in Paynesville, MN to Jerome and Leona (Manz) Herding. Ever since he was five years old, he helped with quite a few chores on the farm. After graduating in 1975, he continued farming with his dad. On April 19,1980, he was united in marriage to Theresa Gruber, who also grew up on a farm. With the knowledge that both Mark and Theresa were passionate about farming, Mark’s father Jerome decided to retire and offer Mark and Theresa to buy the farm. They did buy the farm, had a family, and their children are going to be the 5th generation living and working on the homestead.

Mark is survived by his wife Theresa of Paynesville, his five children Judy Herding of Paynesville, Greg and Samantha Herding of New Munich, Katie and Kassandra Herding of Paynesville, Mary and Sheri Herding of Paynesville and Nick Herding of Paynesville, and seven grandchildren.
