Bayens, Mark Joseph

Mark Joseph Bayens, 62, of Louisville, died peacefully at his home Sunday, April 1, one month to the day after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Born February 28, 1956, Mark was the oldest of six children and the only male. Mischievous and full of life, he was a boy in every sense of the word. On June 28, 1975, he married the love of his life, Linda Marie Kunz, with whom he had three children.

Mark grew up in St. Martha Parish, graduated from Trinity High School and attended the University of Louisville. An IBEW Local 369 journeyman electrician, E & I designer and supervisor, he was also the co-owner of Cooking at the Cottage, a retail store and cooking school, where he was a familiar figure on date nights. He loved preparing and eating good food, fishing, art, travel and NASCAR. Music was part of his soul, and for a time, he played guitar and sang in the rock band Disoriented Pedestrians.

At six-feet-four inches, he was a gentle giant, and was once described as a geode with a beautiful center beneath a hard exterior. Many things made Mark special – his love and pride of family, his knack of never meeting a stranger, his raucous laugh, his childlike sense of fun (he staged elaborate haunted houses at Halloween complete with intricate costumes) and his often-warped sense of humor. (He would have appreciated leaving on April Fool’s Day.)

He was preceded in death by his infant son, Mark J. Bayens Jr., his father, Paul R. Bayens, and his beloved golden retriever, Holley – the best present he ever received. He is survived by his mother, Betty Jean Elder Bayens; wife, Linda Kunz Bayens; daughter, Christina Bayens Faust; son, Craig R. Bayens; and son-in-law, Jeffrey C. Faust, all of Louisville. He is also survived by sisters, Paula Cates (Riley) of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Sally Barman (Ken), Jenny Warren (Bill), Martha Clark (Greg), Beth Tetley (Dan) of Henryville, Indiana; brothers-in-law, Fred J. Kunz III (Sandy), John B. Kunz (Tina), James R. Kunz (Michelle) of LaGrange, Kentucky, all of the Louisville area; 10 nieces and nephews and 11 great nieces and nephews.

“What a long strange trip it’s been,” Mark often said, quoting the Grateful Dead, and in that spirit, on April 29, beginning at noon, the Bayenses will open their home for “Markapaloosa,” a joyful celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages contributions to Trust for Life for Organ Donor Awareness, Apron Inc. and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
