Mark Kennedy Bloodgood, age 57, passed away June 12, 2021 at his family home in Apache Junction, Arizona. Mr. Bloodgood was born on March 7, 1964 to SGM Donald Bloodgood and Evelyn Bloodgood in Bad Canstatt, Germany, where they were stationed at the time. He attended LBCC in Albany, Oregon where he studied Non-Destructive Testing, and went on to start a successful career that lasted over 30 years. As an accomplished Level III in five disciplines, known for his integrity and attention to detail, he was often called upon to assist with special projects within the industry. He was well respected for his knowledge and loved getting the chance to pass that knowledge on to the next generation of inspectors.

Mr. Bloodgood married Tracy Lynn Cook over 32 years ago on September 10, 1988 and is survived by her and their four children: Dorinda Bloodgood, Alixandria Bloodgood, JeDana Bloodgood, and Arthur Bloodgood. He is also survived by granddaughter Eden Bloodgood; sister, Tanja Scalise; brother, Bradley Bloodgood; and many other family members and friends. He is preceded in death by his brother Donald Bloodgood. Besides being an amazing husband and father, he was also a mentor to many young people within the community. He will be remembered as a man who loved to have fun and help out the people around him, and will be forever cherished in the memories and hearts of those who knew him.
