• Known for his tireless service to The Rotary Club of Farragut, Mark Bialik, 61, was a licensed professional engineer and president with GBS Engineering. He died June 18.

“He always told the truth (even though that’s not what you wanted to hear); his decisions were always fair; he always wanted goodwill for others; and, more than anything, he wanted his actions to benefit those around him and his community.
“Mark has been instrumental in quarterbacking our flu-shot Saturdays since the inception,” Myers added. “There is a massive void to be filled in our club. Not only did we lose a great Rotarian, I lost one of my best friends.” He died June 18.
