“We appreciate the privacy that people will extend to our family as we both mourn and celebrate the life of Mark Sweeney,” the statement read.

A Miles City native, Mark Sweeney, entered the Democratic primary in February because he believed Eastern and central Montana were getting represented very poorly in Congress by Matt Rosendale.

Mark had been living in Philipsburg for several years but had split his life between the western and eastern parts of the state. He spent half his life in Eastern Montana.

After college at the University of Montana Western, Sweeney returned to the East and worked at the Lower Yellowstone River Intake close to Glendive for Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks.

Sweeney was accountable for establishing the river’s walleye population. “I’ve always been an Eastern Montana guy. It’s where I was raised and worked. Those are the people I understand,” Mark told Lee Montana Newspapers in February.

He also worked as manager of the Washoe Park Trout Hatchery in Anaconda and became an Anaconda-Deer Lodge commissioner and a state senator.
