    Mark was a joy to watch, he had such great wit with out being cruel. He made it fun to watch the stock market news.He laughed allot which seem to add a smile to my face.

    Thanks you Mark

  4. Roslyn DeGregorio Says:

    Mark was CNBC Squawk….I watched whenever he was on and tended not to do so if he was off. The program was not the same without him. I always listened carefully to his sign off at the end of the program to hear if he was going to be off or if he’d say…”I’ll see you tomorrow..” When he’d say those dreaded words….”I’m off next week…I’ll be back the following Mon.”, I’d plan to do errands. I loved him on that show! I am so devastated. He was my favorite CNBC personality!! Roz

  5. Oggie Says:

    Roz, you articulated my sentiments perfectly. I will miss Mark every day.


  6. Rick Filippone Says:

  8. Ken Donmoyer Says:

    Mark’s integrity was his hallmark in broadcasting. He will be sorely missed. RIP, my friend.

  9. Linda Robison Says:

    Mark’s heart, intellect and wit cannot be matched. He was truly the sole of CNBC, and he made finance fun. We will miss you big guy. You cannot be replaced.

  10. Donna Sue Says:

    What a joy it has been to wake up hearing Mark “LIVE”. Morning coffee without him will never be the same. His wit always brought a smile to my face. His integrity and no BS style made him my very favorite journalist. I am so sad. My heartfelt sympathy to his family and close friends.

  11. John Devlin Says:

    Mark was “the man”, the guy to watch, listen to, and to emulate. Cary Grant was right on, when he observed that Mark was the favorite newsman on the screen. He was a joy to see in the morning Squawk Box. More importantly, he gave lawyers a good name. We see you counselor. God bless Mark’s family. He was a great man.

  12. Jim Johns Says:

    Several years ago, I sent him a question for 7 times..no response. I finally tried to insult him and ask him was he above answering my question with his opinion. His response was now that I know you are committed to your question, here is my opinion.

    He demonstatrated Grace, apathy and God’s love to be fair with the equity question I had.

    He added “validation” to the small investor and helped with his impact of professionism journalism.

    God Bless His Family for the loss of a hero.

  13. George Madsen Says:

    Compassionate, funny, insightful, intelligent, on top of his game. What a great guy, I always watched Squawk to see his interviews and listen to his commentary. He will be missed by we the people as well as his family and friends.

  14. Mark Gagnon Says:

    Watching Mark was part of my daily routine, watching the markets and listening to him gutt Barney Frank :)!!! His wit, quick tongue and intellect will truly be missed!!! God Bless Mark’s Family and may he Rest In Peace!!

  15. Doug Ruby Says:

    I didn’t know Mark but watched him every day and enjoyed doing so. He was an insightful anchor who was always able to sift through the BS to get to what was real and will be sorely missed. RIP Mark.

  16. Andrew Reade Says:

    The heart and soul of CNBC will be missed – the integrity the honesty – a great role model.

  17. Deborah Wagner Says:

    I valued Mark Haines’ commentary and curmudgeonly demeanor on air. Much as I have missed another financial commentator, Louis Ruyeser, I will miss MH. He portrayed an honesty, unglossy approach to financial news. When the market crashed in ’08 and moral hazard seemed to be dead with the bailout, his evaluation that it was the end of capitalism was the first honest evaluation of the situation. Deep condolences to his family and friends.

  19. barbara billadeau Says:

    What a face! A face of many expressions as he peered over his glasseat at the ticker and gave his predictions for the day-and for the future. I had commented to my husband just a few days prior that Mark looked a bit unwell and that he seemed a little “deflated” since the departure of his sidekick Erin, who, through his iracible ways he showed the warmth of a loving mentor to. I’ll sure miss him.

  20. Cinda Says:

    Mark was just cool, not caring what others thought about his on the mark opinions and his ability to cut through the usual B.S. of the average politician and show what was right (and wrong) about our country and it’s financial system. I miss him already, my sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.

  21. Marcia Hollingsworth Says:

    We feel like we lost a good friend, even though we only knew Mark through TV. Our mornings will never be the same. God bless his family as they grieve their loss. You will be sorely missed, Mark. Thank you for your insights and great humor.
    Marty and Lynn

    Deutschland und der Rest der Welt wird dich vermissen …. Germany and the rest of the world will miss you …

  23. John Dudenhoefer Says:

    Enjoyed ‘Squawk on the Street’; Mr. Haines will be missed………

  24. james B Olson Says:

    Thanks Mark for all the good times. Jim

  25. E. J. Smatt Says:

    AS my mother aged, living to nearly 103, she always lamented the loss of all of her friends. I feel that way about Mark. I have lost my morning friend. E.J.Smatt

  26. William E. Buyrn Says:

    I’m just a citizen, still working at 71. Mark Haines was smart, knowledgable and worth the time to listen and pay attention. I will miss his wise counsel.

  27. Minh Tran Says:

    Mark will alway be remmembered…



  29. Gary Christopher Says:

    Mark – you will be missed – we lived in RI when you were on the air back in the early 80s. You are about 5 years older than me and I found myself emulating you as a curmudgeon. I will miss my role motto – best wishes in the hereafter – Gary Christopher

  30. Christopher Jones Says:

    Have a good trip,Mark. We wonder why you left us so soon?

  31. D. Carson Says:

    Mark was in my living room every day. I felt
    like he was family. My husband was a big fan of
    Mark’s. We watched the coverage of 911 on CNBC.
    Mark was so professional, a guy you could trust.
    I am just so very sad that he is gone. He loved
    his family so much, I feel so sad for them. Can
    not imagine CNBC without Mark!

  32. cary pollack Says:

    Cary Grant was right. We all lost a giant

  33. cary pollack Says:

    Cary Grant’s taste was as great as this giant.

  34. Helen Equi Says:

    My husband and I watched Mark and Erin every morning for I can’t remember how long. My husband recently passed away on April 1, 2011 and find the passing of Mark almost personal. I understand what his wife Cindi must be going through. This is not an easy journey, but one that needs to be slowly walked. My thoughts and prayers are with Mark’s family, but I now consider my husband to be in excellent company.

  35. jim cay Says:

    I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Haines. He seemed to have that rare ability to connect with people and still get his point across in a very fair way. I watched him from the beginning and I always appreciated his presence,it won’t be possible to fill this mans shoes.Again I am sorry for his passing.

  36. Cindy Ashley Miller Says:

    Mark…I luved watching u for many years, nearly every morning.

    I will miss u terribly.

  37. Nathaniel Port Says:

    Mark was irreplaceable and his public must know that. He was one of a kind and will always be missed on his network. I kind of think Mark would bashfully think all this commotion for me? Well I for one will miss you. God bless your family!

  38. john Says:

    His coworkers hated him. He died of a broken heart.

  39. Wil Carolan Says:

    I did not personaqlly know you….but I really miss you

  40. Beth Kirkwood Says:

    I continue to watch CNBC but it is not the same without Mark. I really respected him, his points of view, his insight, his humour and more. RIP Mark … you are missed

  41. Jean Bellefontaine Says:

    Oh, how the world still misses Mark Haines. Its so sad when I hear his colleges mentioning him and keeping his memory alive. God bless his co workers for their daily healing & family. Jh

  42. Ira Flagg Says:

    Mark was a gentleman. He cared very much for the little investor. He “cross examined” all the guests that came on the show , Because Mark seeked the truth. If someone said something that didn’t sound right to Mark, Mark would “straighten” them out. Mark handled 9/11 like a true champion. Mark is very missed by me, As well as millions of others. CNBC has not been the same and will never be the same without him.. Mark called the “Haines” Bottom. Shalom Mark…
