A free spirit who became part of the living scenery of downtown Evergreen, Mark Cairns will be remembered as a gentle soul who had few possessions other than an enduring passion for music.
Cairns got the nickname “Walking Mark” because he never had a car and was always seen around town on foot, sporting a white ponytail, guitar on his back, wearing brown corduroy pants and a gray Irish fisherman sweater.
Cairns died the evening of June 19 of undetermined causes. Sources said he was taking a shower at a friend’s house when he suddenly collapsed.
