Mark Peter Limburg, died Nov. 15, 2022. Mark was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, April 25, 1963, to James and Martha (Ylvisaker) Limburg. He was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls.

Mark graduated from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, majoring in history and philosophy. He continued his studies in music theory and piano tuning at the University of Minnesota and MacPhail School of Music.

Throughout his life, Mark served the church through music and was a member of Como Park Lutheran Church. He also played guitar and keyboard for many other congregations in the Twin Cities area, often accompanied by talented friends and colleagues.

Beyond his frequent contributions to worship services, Mark headlined concerts at the Mall of America’s holiday stage and played at other prestigious regional and international venues.

During his final days, Mark was working on a new project that he had hoped to complete with a special dedication to his grandfathers: “To Stanley Limburg, who taught me to play, and to J. W. Ylvisaker, who taught me to pray.”

Mark was preceded in death by his grandparents, his father James Limburg and his uncle James Ylvisaker. He is survived by his mother Martha Limburg, his sister Kristi (Limburg) Berkland (Dan) and his brothers David (Laura) Limburg and Paul (Cora) Limburg. A family service of remembrance is scheduled in July in Longville, Minnesota.
