His family knew he was involved in the community, but didn't know quite how much until his death in February. That's when they found out about all of the money he left behind for the organizations he cared about.
On Tuesday, Zehren and her mother Bernice Scholz delivered a check for $30,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County.
"When you get this type of donation, that’s a big deal," said Jay Fisher, the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County. "Unbudgeted money and the amount he has given...you’re able to serve a lot more kids."
"It’s very hard for me not to shed a tear because he’s done such wonderful things for the kids and in his life, that was very very important," said Bernice Scholz.
The family went on a tour of the facility and was invited to eat a Thanksgiving meal with the children there, something they say was very healing.
"It's made me very, very proud of having a son like him," Bernice said.
The money will be used to support local sports leagues in West Bend, something Mark was very passionate about.
His family still has six more checks to deliver, including a $30,000 donation for the Kraemer Cancer Center at St. Joseph's Hospital and a $15,000 donation for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County.
