"I am proud to say I grew up in DeSoto County and have lived in Southaven for 35 years. I am the son of Louise Gardner and the late W.D. Gardner of Nesbit. Generations of Gardners live, work and worship in Desoto County.
Family, Faith, and Community are most important to me. I am married to the former Elaine Starnes. My children are Kristen, Julie, Jonathan and his wife Beth. Most importantly I am Papa to my grandchildren.
I am an active member of HeartLand Church in Southaven. I enjoy playing trumpet and guitar, and I have played in church and community orchestras throughout the years. I am honored when asked to play Taps during funeral services for veterans. I am an avid tennis player and have served as President of the DeSoto County Tennis Association." ~Supervisor Mark Gardner
