The sudden and unexpected passing of Yakima music scene icon Mark Fullerton has certainly left Central Washington with a big hole in its heart.

Mark passed on Friday, Aug.9. His family will hold, for those interested, a public viewing Friday (Aug. 16) from 5-8 p.m. in Yakima at Langevin El Paraiso Funeral Home, 1010 W. Yakima Ave.

Through Mark's brother Mitch, we can also tell you that the Fullerton family is planning a celebration of Mark's life that will take place Sept. 2 at Tailgaters Bar & Grill in Selah (110 E. Third Ave.) from 1 to 5 .p.m. Musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments for a monumental jam session in Mark's honor.
