Had the pleasure of working with Mark at PTC. I always enjoyed working with and interacting with Mark Brace, fortunate to have worked with him on some of his accounts. He was a very nice guy, very positive and his customers and colleagues loved him, he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
Sean Chou left a message on February 24, 2021:
I worked with Mark many years while at PTC. Our interactions were around helping Mark's customers succeed with PTC software and professional services (my role). I always felt Mark stood out from many of his peers as a good-hearted, proactive, fair, honorable, humble yet very successful Account Manager. It was always a pleasure to work with him and I had a lot of respect for him as a PTC Account Manager and as a person. I am sincerely sorry that Mark left us far too soon.

Mark and I worked together many years on agreements between STERIS and PTC. It was a joy to know him. Over the years we developed a close friendship which I will always cherish. I miss him already. I'll never forget how kind he was to my young son a number of years ago when he invited him out to Concord to drive the grape harvester. My son has never forgotten either. I valued all our discussions about work, faith, life, family, diets... every moment was a joy. I grieve his loss but will never forget the man and friend he was to me.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

The first time I met Mark was at a CPR class for Little League coaches. After I did my turn correctly on the dummy he smacked my butt and said great job! With a big smile. I was like wow who is this guy. Through coaching I got to know who he was.....and what he was is simply the best. I’m blessed to have known him even for only a few years. He has affected me like not many have. ?

Mark figured it out at a young age…Life is about people…it’s about family and friends. Livia, Cora, Max, Veda and all the extended family...I write to you as Mark’s work colleague…he talked of his family often, we laughed, we took care of one another, we enjoyed Life. Thank you for sharing him with us all. We are all better because of Mark. Wishing you strength and peace during this time, and comfort in knowing that Mark is still smiling today and will always look over his family…that’s what he does. Honored to have known him and had the opportunity to work with him.
