Mark K. Eller, 69 of Mishawaka, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 2, 2022 at 9:50 pm at Elkhart General Hospital. He had been in ill health. He was born in Mishawaka on September 12, 1953 to the late Warren J. and Ruth (Miller) Eller.
Surviving is his brother James Eller and sister Jolene Plummer, both of Mishawaka.
In accordance with Mark’s wishes, he is to be cremated and then have his remains cast upon the land of which he had a deep respect and love for. Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services have been assisting the family with arrangements.
As all have probably guessed, Mark was a life-long farmer in the Mishawaka area, and was co-owner and operator of Eller Farms, Inc. until around 2007. Obviously, it had been in his blood since birth, and he very much enjoyed his relationship with his land. He had an eye for antique tractors and motorcycles, with John Deere and Harley Davidsons being the “prize” at any sale or auction. Although his outward appearance would label him as the quintessential rough-and-tumble biker guy, Mark had a heart of gold. Rugged, self-sufficient and independent, Mark lived on his own terms.
