Mark Quentin Eubanks, Sr., 85, of Core Creek, died Monday, January 28, 2019 at home. He was born in Morehead City on March 16th, 1933 to Manly Eubanks and Marybell Sabiston Eubanks. He was a 1951 graduate of Beaufort High School and served his country in the United States Navy during the Korean War. He worked at the Naval Aviation Depot, Cherry Point for 33 years as a Management Analyst. Mark spent a large part of his life enjoying the outdoors by fishing, hunting, boating, doing yard work, or just sitting on the porch watching the boats go by. He was especially proud of his five sons and their families.
