Joe Mark was born February 20, 1954 in Fort Worth to the late Joe Edward and Peggy Jean (Campbell) McKinley.  He was raised in Graham and graduated from Graham High School in 1973.  Joe Mark was a long time member of the First Presbyterian Church.  After graduating, Joe Mark joined his father in the operation of the family business, McKinley Hardware, which closed in 1991.  He then continued management with his father at McKinley’s Gaslight Gallery.  Joe Mark was a lifetime member of the Masonic Lodge and he was one of those people that never met a stranger and always wanted to know, “How you were”, and inquired about everyone’s family members.  Everyone that new him has a memory to tell about him.  Joe Mark McKinley was certainly one of a kind.
