In Memory of Mark S. Eggl

Posted on March 27, 2024

DP3 Architects mourns the loss of one of its founders, Mark S. Eggl, who passed away on March 17, 2024. Mark founded the firm in 1984 along with two Clemson University classmates; Samuel D. Justice and J. Michael Taylor.  Mark was instrumental in shaping the firm’s culture and dedicated to providing the best quality projects and service to our clients. 

Mark was a do-it-yourself farm boy from Cando, ND whose work ethic set an example for everyone he worked with.  There was no daily task that he was too proud to do if it meant making the firm better. He was a fantastic detailer, able to offer solutions to unconventional problems.  His designs combined simple, well-thought-out solutions, with the desire to always present a client with the unexpected.  Notable projects he led include the Mauldin Sports Center, Pleasant Ridge Camp and Retreat Center, C.C. Woodson Community Center, Surfside Beach Fire Headquarters, and the Fountain Inn Heritage Museum.

As a mentor, Mark was very generous with his time.  He would always stop what he was doing to answer a question about a project, the firm, or a personal issue that just needed a sympathetic ear.  He was very willing to share his experiences with the young professionals in the office to help them be their best. 

Mark thought of the community as a whole, dedicating his time to charities and causes that he felt passionate about.  As a graduate of both Leadership Greenville and Leadership South Carolina he gained an understanding of issues that affected those around him and did his best as a leader to help contribute to their solutions.

We will remember Mark as a leader and a mentor.  We will remember the way he threw his head back when he laughed, the time he gave to all who asked, and of course, the burgers.  Nobody grilled like Mark!

Our thoughts are with his wife, Carla Ann , daughter Ashley, son Stephen, and their families.
