M. R. Massey
The M. R. Massey Administration Building was named in memory of a long-time and involved resident of this district, Mark Massey. Mark not only was a MUD 23 Board member for many years, he was very active in other activities in our district. This building was his vision and he spent many hours planning its construction. Mark passed away in January of 2005 at the young age of 43 soon after construction commenced on the building.
