Mark Aaron Giebel

June 2, 1953—Oct. 15, 2018

Funeral service at Nalley, Pickle and Welch, 3800 N. Big Spring St., Midland Tx. 79705 on Saturday, Oct. 20, between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Graveside internment to follow.

His parents were Betty Marie Giebel, now Timmons, and Aaron Frank Giebel.

Mark grew up in Midland,Tx., and attended Fannin Elementary School, and San Jacinto Jr High. He also went to Texas Military Institute for a year before finishing high school at Midland High and was a star football player. He graduated in 1968. Mark then went on to San Angelo State University and graduated with a business degree in 1975.

He loved the outdoors, working, or playing. He liked to swim, ski, camp and hike.

He wasn’t afraid of hard work and did his very best in any endeavor.

Mark went to work for his Dad in 1975 for MGF Oil Company and took over the company (Giebel Petroleum ltd) after his Father Aaron passed away (in a private plane crash) on Feb. 14, 1990.

He met Gina (his wife) in November of 1978, they married on Aug. 29, 1980.

Mark fought to keep the company afloat after the “big oil bust” of the early 80s.

He worked hard, with the help of a tremendous staff, to pull the company back to where it would flourish.

I know he would want me to thank his tremendous employees over the years for their hard work and dedication. Giebel Petroleum would not have survived without them.

Mark is survived by his Wife Gina, sons, Scot and Eric and Grandson, Mark Aaron III. Also his Mother Betty. Sisters, Suzanne Thorpe, Kathy Larkman, and Jill warford and their families.

In lieu of flowers, we ask for donations to Alzheimer’s Assoc., or American Cancer Society.
