Mark was born April 27, 1959 to Ernest (Bud) and Patricia Durre in Atkinson, NE. Mark was the third oldest of 4 boys. Mark grew up on the ranch west of Chambers and graduated from Chambers Public High School in 1977. Following graduation, he began ranching the family homestead. Mark was united in marriage to Diana Hayes on September 15, 1979, at the First Christian Church in O’Neill, NE. To this union, three children were born; Doug, Michelle, and Derek. Mark attended the World-Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, IA in 1985 and began his journey into Auctioneering and Real Estate with his brother Mike. Mark owned and operated Premier Auto Care of O’Neill, spent time in auto sales and enjoyed his time as a Salesman for Schuler Manufacturing. Mark and Matt began M&M Auctions in 2003, only missing a few auctions throughout his lifetime and was active until his final days.

Mark was a capable man in almost anything. If it had to be done, he’d figure out a way to accomplish it. His favorite past-time was chatting for hours with friends and strangers who didn’t know they were friends yet. He was a humorous man, who enjoyed singing, sports, playing cards, hunting & fishing, and cruising in his automotive pride and joy – his 1952 Chevy 5-window pickup. He was a generous man who served many years as an Elder within the First Christian Church in O’Neill. He was a member of the Nebraska Auctioneer Association’s and participated in a number of other organizations. Above all, Mark loved his family dearly and just wanted to spend time with them in any capacity possible.

Mark is survived by his three children; Doug (Rosalyn) Durre of Ord, NE and their four children, Elliana, Zanetta, Jerriah and Brielle; Michelle (Matt) McKay of O’Neill, NE and their three children, Cooper, Colby and Cash; Derek (Miranda) Durre of Sioux City, IA and they are expecting their first child; brothers, Dan (Pam) Durre of Hiawatha, KS, Mike (Patty) Durre of O’Neill, NE; sisters- in- law, Susan (Rovert Jr.) Sanderson of Emerson, NE, Mary (Robert Jr.) Green of Anaheim, CA, Erna Durre of Yelm, WA; mother- in- law, Marian Hayes of O’Neill, NE and many nieces, nephews and close family friends.

He is preceded in death by: his wife, Diana, parents, Ernest Jr. and Patricia Durre, brother, John Durre, father- in- law, C.D. Hayes and niece, Stephanie Durre.

I knew Mark when he was a little boy when I came back from California for a visit. His mother and I were very close friends up until her death. Mark and Mike had the auction for my mom and dad's house and all the furnishing. I always liked Mark and am so glad I knew him. I know his family will miss him and my prayers go out to them.
