66 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK OBITUARY Mark Robert Ryan, age 61, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 21st after a difficult battle with esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family when he passed. Mark founded Associated Fastening Products in 1989 in his garage in Buffalo Grove, IL. He grew the company to 25 employees at their new 25,000 square foot facility in Itasca. He had expanded the product line from standard fasteners to custom machines parts, adding many other services as well. He then added a second business, Integrated Packaging and Fastener, in 2001 to service hardware kit packaging. He began his businesses with long hours, the drive to success and with dedication and hard work, he grew the businesses successfully until he passed. In the past 15 years, he expanded his company, 3x and kept customer satisfaction consistently high. Both companies had quickly expanded and were a source of great pride and joy in his life. He had been a true leader to his team and will be dearly missed.
