Mark Payton Sheffield, also known as Khameleon, was born to Winfred Paul and Vera Lee Sheffield on July 6, 1965 at Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Mark was a happy baby with big, dimpled cheeks and the sweetest smile. He was that same excited, loving, happy person his whole life. Mark attended Sunday school and church at an early age and as soon as he could understand what it was all about he accepted Christ in his life. He attended Schultz Grade School, Beaubien Junior High School, Detroit Central High School (where he played basketball - his big brother, Dodie, says he was really good), and Wayne County Community College. In 2004, Mark moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, seeking a better quality of life. The most quality thing he found there was Cathy Richardson, the woman he would quickly fall in love with. He and Cathy were married on May 15, 2010 in Detroit. Mark loved to pick on the people he loved and make us laugh. He loved being a son to his parents, a husband to Cathy, a human friend to his dogs, and a father to all five of his babies. Mark loved concerts; he liked being in the middle of everything, as close to the stage as possible, if not on it. In fact, he was a wonderful disc jockey. He liked comic books and was a collector. He loved playing video games with his kids. Marks priority in life were his children: daughters, Mallary Geniece and Madison Bean, and sons, Payton Richard, DaKhym Lee, and Maxx Jo Steele. Mark was a baker, working for his friend, Joel. He worked for Pepsi and kept Mallary in Mountain Dew Pitch Black. And for the last seven years, he was a stay-at-home, full-time parent to his sons, better known as the woodchucks. Mark leaves his mother and step-father, Vera and Samuel Campbell. He leaves three brothers, Dorian, Ralph, and Vincent. Mark leaves his beloved wife and best friend, Cathy Sheffield and five treasured children. Also carrying Marks memory in their hearts are his dear parents-in-law, Richard and Joyce Richardson, and sister- and brother-in-law, Sandra and Mike ODay and their family. And his close cousins, Barbara Jean (Beth), Robert Clayton (Diane), Linda Kathryn, and Sandra Penny (Gregory) and their children. He leaves a host of other cousins and nieces and nephews and friends in Detroit and Sioux Falls. Mark had a massive brain hemorrhage and heart attack on June 11, 2015 and passed away at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls on June 14, 2015. Mark is physically gone but his laughter will always leave an echo like music in our hearts. His genuineness and warmth of spirit will live on in Mallary, Beanie, Payton, DaKhym, and Maxx. Thank you, Mark/Kham.
