Mark A. Symonds for Lake County Coroner

Because Every Life Tells a Story


- I will conduct thorough death investigations utilizing proven techniques. 

- I will promote informed communities to help prevent avoidable deaths.

- I will responsibly use our resources to provide accurate & timely results.

As your Lake County coroner, I promise to uphold the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and service.  

Together we can ensure each life story is accurately told. Thorough death investigations, wise use of our resources, and with an informed community that can work together to prevent avoidable deaths. Your vote means so much - especially to those who have a story that needs to be told.

I look forward to continuing our journey together. 

Our home growing up was above a funeral home. I learned as a small child that death is unexpected, it happens at the least opportune moment, and death impacts an entire community. Beyond the technical aspects of death investigations, I will honor the lives of the departed by uncovering their narratives—their joys, struggles, and contributions. Every individual deserves to be remembered, and I will ensure that their stories are heard, even the story told in death. 

As a funeral director with over 30 years of experience, I will continue to facilitate healthy dialogue with medical professionals, law enforcement, Lake County officials and the community.
