Mark William Wharton, 64, of Macksburg, Ohio, died Sunday, May 19, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio. He was born on September 6, 1954 in Marietta, Ohio, to William E. and Mary J. Beardmore Wharton.
Mark was a 1972 graduate of Marietta High School, and attended Marietta College. He was the owner of Tropic Air, Inc. in Marietta, which he started in 1983. Mark was a member of the 6th & Washington Street Church of Christ. He loved his farm, especially being on his tractors, mowing, and sometimes mowing more than he should (the wild flowers)! Mark has a Firebird that he enjoyed working on, but most of all his life revolved around his family, farm and work.
He is survived by his wife, Julia Anne Graham Wharton, whom he married on December 19, 2012; his parents of Marietta; three children, Lucas and Amanda Wharton, both of Marietta, and Jessop Wharton of Parkersburg, WV; four step children, Jennifer Hinton (Shawn) of Marietta, Graham Cochran of Vienna, WV, Jacob Zide (Stephanie) of Zanesville, Ohio and Kevin Zide of Nelsonville, Ohio; grandchildren, Reese, Sophia, Kylee, Graham, Lex, Reese and Rowan; brothers, Craig Wharton (Diane) of Crownsville, MD, Paul Wharton (Silvia) of Coppell, TX and Keith Wharton (Leslie) of Santa Clara, CA; many nieces and nephews; special aunt, Ruth Wharton and cousin, Lisa Wharton; sister in law, Dawn Parker (Jim) of Circleville, Ohio; and brothers in law, Richard Graham (Sue) of Canyon Lake, TX and Randy Graham of Columbus.
He was preceded in death by many aunts and uncles, including Robert Wharton; and his mother in law, Betty Graham.
Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 24, 2019 at the Marietta Chapel of Cawley & Peoples Funeral Home, with Roger Rush and Rev. Linda Steelman officiating. Visitation will be on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Craig, Paul and the Wharton family, We were traveling and just learned of mark's passing. We are so sorry for your loss. I first met Mark at MHS and enjoyed our time in the band. I was a customer of Tropic Air from the beginning and he (and several of you) was a customer of mine in my audio days. While servicing our furnace recently, we discussed retirement possibilities and he said he was planning on a few more years then cutting back to only a few loyal customers. We joked about our hair. I was envious of his still being dark and he said he would trade the thinning dark for my thick white anytime. We both shared a love for cars and even came close, in the mid '70s, to trading my Corvette for his beloved Firebird. We routinely ran into each other at Miller's filling up and always enjoyed a brief conversation. We were not best of friends but he meant a lot to me and my family. He will truly be missed.

My heart is very heavy, I have done business with Mark for over 25years. He will be missed so much. He was more than a business associate he was a very dear friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and everyone that knew him..
