Curiad - The Man who Changed So Many Lives and Even Saved One

Our hubber friend Curiad

This hub is dedicated to the man that made so much for so many and now is facing some problems of his own.

A Hubber that started writing about the pitfalls of our system and the legacy that was handed down to him. The following words express our concern for this fellow writer. Seem that America and its dream is fading away through the hands of people that made this Country great. Just Neil Armstrong's heart stopped its fight to keep him in this world. Maybe it was not worth the fight through aortas and complex heart surgeries? Let's see what we have for Mark:

A Hubber And a Dream

Born in San Jose CA, on July 18th 1956, Mark Weller was a cute little boy with so much hope. From birth he was exposed to hard working people and imagination that kept him going. He could've been born in New Jersey, but a twist of fate made the West Coast his home. Just have in mind this date 07/56.

He had two siblings, a brother named James and a sister named Wendy. Grammar school was spent with mom and then... life made changes. Dad divorced mom when he was barely six years of age. Mark finished high school in 1973 at Sequioa High School, Redwood City, CA.

Mark did make it to College and in 1991 finished his studies of Air Conditioning & Refrigeration at San Jose City College.

His Parents And his Legacy

Theodore Weller

Born in the early 20's Teddy was named after president Theodore Roosevelt. For Mark's dad, hard work was the norm. Those were the years of depression and little money. Sound like we are living those times again? All these scenario took place in the Central valley of California. Like Mark said, his dad was on Army leave in New Jersey, and that's when he met Curiad's mom: Hellen Weller. Dad and mom divorced, as we said, when Mark was only six. Mark enlisted into the Air Force (USAF) and went into the world. "High School was boring, and was nothing but a excuse to babysit us," said Mark.

As taught from birth, his family was all he had. Mark always came back to see his dad and mom. "Dad taught me about honor, respect, love, true spirit and so much more." The love for others and righteousness was instilled in Mark for one reason. The reason why so many hubber stay together as one. Mark was chosen to touch so many lives and he did touch us when he showed us his last home or dwelling.

Unfortunately Theodore's heart stopped on July 18th, 2007 at 07:56 in the morning. If Mark ever noticed the time of his death signaled Mark's own date of birth : July, 1956. Or 07/56.

How in the world this happened? Coincidence? Last message for a beloved son?

Hellen Weller

Mark the precocious child inherited good ways from both parents. There wouldn't have been an Edison or a Henry Ford without parents. Even Paul Edmondson can tell us about his mom. Hellen was a mom any one would love to have. Well, we love our moms to death, "She was intelligent, caring, outspoken and hard working," wrote Mark.

Born in Northern New Jersey, after world war II (early 20's), Mrs. Weller knew about living hard times through childhood. How did she meet mark's dad? Ask Hellen's brother who was best buddies with Mark's father. Like in any movie, Hellen was stolen from the East coast and ended up in Santa Clara, California, where Mark and his two sibling were born. Hellen took care of Mark for the rest of his grammar schooling years.

Mark talks of her fondly: "We all were taught respect, love, honesty and citizenship by this good woman." Mrs. Weller was a beautiful mom who always was there for Mark. Even had enough time to see Mark's daughter Niki. Unfortunately. Yes!! Why the good people..! Oh God.

Hellen Weller passed away early in the morning, March 1st. 2010 in Santa Cruz, CA. The loss of both parents in three years devastated Mark.

Mark A.K.A Curiad Today

Mark Joined HubPages on April 2011. He wanted to change his destiny like any of us. We all have a tale to tell.

With so much to share and technology at his fingertips, Curiad made his way among us. His Virtual Aviation Reviews were done awesomely. His ways of life made an effect on us and Billybuc. He came to us with paintings, photo-shop tutorials and photographic resources. His knowledge of air ballooning and tomato growing was shared with us.This man was moving along the bytes of HubPages, checking our 'pablums' and writings about the obligations we all writers owe to our readers. The man lifted a boulder off his shoulders when he moved on with his life and his hopes. We all went to relationships and its pitfalls and downfalls. Mark was no exception.

The night he Saved a Life

Mark is a quiet guy who can tell you like it is, when needed. He wrote a hub titled, "The night I saved a life." We just want you to read it and know the real man behind the quill. All we can say is that he was Awesome! He did what he was supposed to do and made his quick moves. A real hero in disguise, who after done, just went back to a normal everyday life.

Love your Child
Love your Child | Source

How to survive the American Dream when it's not there

Curiad has been clear about the hidden forces behind our economy. The way things go, many won't see a tomorrow when money is becoming scarce and cannot live any longer with no income at all. Mark is an example of the forgotten Senior American, who gave it all, even over that 110% and lost it with no warning. Becoming a dad himself in his forties, changed his whole life scenario.

Becoming a man for the planet has a toll. Either you are a follower of "earthly rules," or you become free and ostracized by a society that alienates people by age and gender.

For us, Curiad is an example of a life well lived relying on what our parents taught us. This hub has not been rehearsed or intended to be a bio about him. This is a tribute to an American that was failed by his Government and the system. Curiad my friend, we hope to see you succeed among us, and... with a hand against our heart, you can count on us. Was nice meeting you through the magic of HP. We hope one day, to shake those hands of yours with pride!!

Our Plead and Appeal

We know Curiad is having hard time these days. If you think you can do something to give him a hand, by sharing his work, we will appreciate your gesture. Privately we will try different means ourselves. Thank You!

Lord,

Recapping one's life take a special writer, and we all know that is you.

However, at the same time it is very sad to think there is something wrong with him beside what I already know.

There are a lot of people having a hard time in our USA today, I see it everyday, but yet they keep on going---why because they are

Americans. And so is Curiad and I believe with all my heart he will triumph over his health issues.

Inclosing I wish him all the best in the world.

Joseph,

Outstanding article about Mark! I was unaware of all these travails and it saddens me. Fortunately he finds himself in a very supporting environment here at Hubpages and if anyone had any doubts...your fine article is a helping hand reaching across that chasm of uncertainty that so many seem to be facing these days.

Thanks for sharing this story,

Then Lord,

You really need to do an Autobiography, because I cannot recall anyone who has done more for so many as you have for us the--HubPages Hubbers.

Let someone steal our work and who takes care of the issue when most of us can only tap on the keyboard and write. You go above and beyond to help us all.

Seriously Lord, we appreciate you very much.

Thanks for your kindness to everyone.

Your Friend,

This is a wonderful thing to do lord. Mark toook part in the 16 chapter Hub Journey, a Look At Aging and it was a pleasure working with him and 14 other great Hubbers on that effort. His answers to the questions posed were thoughtful and heartfelt.

Cardisa also mentioned Mark in her latest Hub about reasons to live.

Now, blessings and prayers, good thoughts and wishes are all wonderful things. What Mark needs is a roof over his head before September 9th. Does anyone have contacts in northern California that might be useful?

What concrete measures can we take to help Mark?


Lord De Cross profile image

Lord De Cross 4 years ago Author

Xstatic, We think the best thing to do is to plead to some landowners near Mark's area (Newman CA). I know Mark will contact us soon. His physical address will be useless before September 9th, So Mark! Please write Us back and and we will try to do something for you. Hope his situation gets solved either on his own or with our prayers and solid support.

Wow Lord De Cross this is proof... that you are not only an incredible writer but an incredible citizen and friend. I had no idea... and I am akin to xstatic in the question of what can be done to help this incredible man.

I am somewhat new to the hubpages community... but obviously this is soooo much more than a writing site. Hubpages seems a Real community and I am moved to tears at this level of care and concern for another human being.

Unknow Spy Salamat! Mark's daughter is away with mom for those errors of life and the judiciary system. Not really want to go into details but Mark has been through a lot.

@Lathing, Thanks my friend for your support! Writing from the heart is easier than stealing ideas already written. So, thanks for your feedback.

@Rcrumple, there is no funny bottom to push in here for now. We are jokers by nature, but when we see despair and need, we jump on the cause. We do thorough research and start writing.

@Janine, I wish I could help you to find a good job, because damn! You can teach better than those teachers that are there for the paycheck. Hope your hubbie is doing good along with your precious daughters and yourself of course.

This is surely another sad story. I know quite a lot about living with health issues and not being able to work since I was 54. It is possible to overcome and find new ways. I hope so much that Curiad will receive the result of the prayers from his fellow Hubbers. Remember that you are not alone Curiad.

Sorry I'm so late to the party Joseph. This happens to be about one of my favorite Hubbers and a person I call a personal friend. Mark and I have talked on the phone, shared thoughts and hopes, and I find him to be a quality human being. You have done well, Joseph, with this wonderful tribute.


Amy Becherer profile image

Amy Becherer 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO

I met Mark recently here at the hub. He is an inspiration and I feel, a kindred spirit. I enjoyed the tutorial about his upbringing and I loved the photographs of his handsome parents and absolutely gorgeous daughter.

I know what it's like to have an unpredictable disease and I know what it is now, for the first time in my life, to be unemployed. It is very frightening, even for the bravest, like Mark. Without the ability to pay for health insurance, even living on the most restrictive budget, life feels as if on a wing and a prayer. As selfish as it may sound, I gather courage from knowing I am not alone. Mark is a survivor, as am I. Sometimes, though, even at that, circumstances beyond any individual's control is a scary place to be. My thoughts are always and will continue to be with Mark. I am richer for knowing him.

Thank you, Lord De Cross, for honoring Mark for all that he does to keep the faith and make the world a better, warmer place.

Lord, this is a wonderful tribute to a very fine writer and a highly intelligent, gifted writer. Curiad is one of the best writers on Hubpages. I think with his very unique gifts in writing, history, and aviation he will really go far as a writer. Writers like you make this community a wonderful, nurturing place.

Thanks Curiad. Enjoy your title bestowed upon you as hubber of the day, by the traffic seen toward your work. Relax, take a coffee and get time to answer to your fans' commenting and sharing. No excuses this time.

@ Pamela, Mark is feeling energized and ready to make this challenge his! A true aviator cannot lead his fans into a crashing sensation of hopelessness. Thaanks for the prayers and your kind heart. Sending prayers for your mom and for your own health Pamela.

@ Billybuc, that must've been an awesome talk with Mark; exchanging so many things from life and the future. You are a true hubber indeed. Thanks for spreading that love for simple things in life. Great to have you on this corner as well!

Thanks so much Debbie! Your prayers and your group are always doing miracles, like when we needed some prayer for Faith. You have a nice day my dear friend!

@Laurinzo, is just a way to celebrate our humanity in here. Besides the income, we try to commit to a cause of sharing and caring. I know time is short, but we try to be around this community. Take care man!

@Amy Becherer, technology will never replace the human touch. Your situation is not really as good as many that take for granted health and those weekend parties. My prayers for you and hope you get a way out, if not let us know, and we will see how can we help as well. As a woman you deserve respect and praise. I remember your mom illness too, downsizing was the last option for so many of us. Thanks for being here. We will check your work as well.

@ Rasma, if you put it that way, then we already know the Lord will answer our prayers. Miracles happen and we don't know what to expect, but have faith.

Rolly A Chabot, we read as well about your wonderful mom. Pain is around when we know the time of departure looms and comes around taking our happiness away. Thanks for leaving such a heartfelt comment. Curiad must be feeling better by knowing that his friends are out there to appeal to this life and its misery face to face.

@Hi Tammy! Yeah! You are so right. Curiad gained our hearts, especially when he wrote those two hubs about his parents. Hope you are having a nice day as a mommy. Happy to have you in here.

@SuzzetteNAPLES, Mark is the kind of neighbor you want to meet. He could've been a magnificent teacher in any academy or aviation school. There is so much to learn from him. Hope his situation gets solved.

@ SuzzieHQ buona sera down Lombardia and Perugia Signorina! Thanks for stopping by my dear friend. Mark should be proud of all of us. Your presence here makes us feel that we are read around the globe. Have a good night!

I'm back, finished my class and breathing again. I just wanted to say that as a relatively new hubber, I am proud to belong to this community, and to read and feel such heartwarming sentiments as those that abound in this hub and in all the comments, which I have read from top to bottom. I had already offered some comments to Mark on FB, but I didn't know it was so serious. I can't really help much except for moral support, but I will search out his writings and share everywhere I can think of. In the meantime, my prayers are on their way north. All the best, Mark and Lord!
