Gregg Hartney:

"I used to judge Mark when he debated for Arlington HS; in fact to this day I do not put added salt on my food because of Mark's Aff case on the consumer product safety topic. Mark didn't have a "real" debate coach in HS so he was always asking for more extensive critique after the rounds and he was one of the most apt and receptive students I ever "taught." As his academic career progressed we stayed in touch, and one year he honored me with the Outstanding Coach Award at the UNT tournament for high schools...his presentation speech codified the reasons why I still do this activity. He was an intelligent, caring individual and all of the worlds in which he lived will miss him greatly."

 Mark was my debate partner senior year at UTA. Smart, funny and kind.


"Mark just told me last week he was headed to Russia for work.  We hadn't talked in the longest and then reconnected on FB.  I am heartbroken for his little daughter."

 Thanks for everything Mark. You were a fantastic coach, an incredible teacher and a great friend to all. I will never forget the time we all spent in the van on the way to tournaments. Farewell my friend.

Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord,and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace! Amen. Goodbye, Mark. I hope St. Peter met you at the Pearly Gates with a laurel and hardy handshake.

One of my favorite DeLoach moments: (Upon hearing of a young man's purchase of cheap condoms). "That's NOT where you wanna economize, man!!"
He was soooo funny (as was Gossett)!! The world will certainly have fewer laughs.

I first met Mark when we competed against each other in an oratorical contest in Arlington in 6th grade. We lost touch after high school, to my regret. RIP.

Thoughts go out today to Mark's family and friends and all the UNT debate crew...I have to think Mark and Coach are laying out the next NDT golf course and finding all the best places for malt 30.

Amy Starr :

Took a field trip to the Riverwalk tonight. We're eating at a restaurant when a mariachi band comes up and asks if they can play us a song. The 8-year old, that would be Spencer Zuzolo Starr, shouts out "yes". I ask them if they know "One Ton Tomato" and they laughed and said they did. I felt Gossett would approve, so would Mark. And I thought of all my UNT friends, so far away but close in my heart tonight.

 RIP Mark Deloach. My thoughts are with Bella--to lose both parents by 10.

Peace be with you my friend.

I miss you...
