I have a “Monk and Red” article burned into my brain as a child. Thanks for burnside. Thanks for defining what skateparks should look like for decades to come.

What a life to lose. His legacy is literally set in stone though, and his spirit will live on through burnside and the rest of his amazing creations.

Damn I feel so bad for his family. On last years road trip we went to his house and skated his vert ramp. He wasnt there but his wife let us skate the ramp. when we were leaving my fucking car wouldnt start so I had to go knock on the door and ask for a jump start. She jumped the car for us and and i gave her a squash that my wife grew in our backyard. She said Mark was gonna be hyped on the squash, and I always wondered if they ate it. life is short and fucked up.

People like Mark are the real heroes of skateboarding. We've lost a real good one.

What a beautiful fucking legacy he left.
Spraying concrete is one of the filthiest, grimiest tasks around and he did it all for us.

This is a huge loss...Monk helped lead the way so concrete transition was still an important part of skating.  He didn't just do it for himself but everyone.....

Let's keep this right at the top.  This is a skateboard forum.  Everyone here should kick in whatever you can if we really value skateboarding.  If you've EVER skated a DIY spot, you can thank Hubbard.  If you ever learned to mix mud and form transitions, you can most likely thank Hubbard.  The parks he left behind will live on forever, and the knowledge he passed on to skateboarding as a whole is enough to carry skateboarding into the next millennium.

Living in a small town, I benefitted so much from having an early Grindline park built nearby. It's where I met people who are my best friends 15 years later.

Stories about Monk, Red, Rabbi, etc., were like currency to us, the stories were so unbelievable. The first time Hubbard showed up at the park, carrying an iPod and a guitar speaker blasting Geto Boys, I was too scared to talk to him. My friend jumped off the bench and said, "Hey, are you Monk?" and they shook hands. My friend reported later that Monk's hand shake was kinda weak – no idea if that was true or if my friend was showing off.

By the end of the day he invited our whole crew to skate the West Seattle bowls, and we were not "cool." We were awkward small town teenagers; some of us thought we were hip hop, or punk rockers. Some were homeschooled. I wore a helmet and we were all just weirdos. When we showed up, it was like looking through a window into another world. That was a really cool thing for him to do. I'll pitch in for sure because I know I would be a different person without him. We all would be – every hot young kid can skate transitions now and I'm not sure that would be the case without Hubbard and Red.

Respect, there's so many stories like that about him.  I met him a couple of times through mutual friends, but the things those dudes all have done and will continue doing for skateboarding is what will keep skateboarding what it was always intended to do.

Thanks, I only met Monk a few times, but the dude was skateboarding personified.

I grew up in Vista, CA and learned how to do a lot of my fundamentals at the old Carlsbad and Vista parks. Most of the parks around here with the exception of the YMCA were built by companies that didn't give a shit about or know anything about skateboarding. Vista's skaters petitioned our city for eight years to build us another park and last year, Monk and the Grindline crew built us two incredible parks right in the middle of Vista. Thank you Mark for giving us parks all over the US and a skatepark in Vista again. RIP Monk

Most of the time, if cause of death is not mentioned in obituaries it's drugs or suicide and the family doesn't want to advertise it.

You're most likely right every time I've lost a friend to drugs or suicide they never mention it in the obituary
