DALLAS -- Law enforcement, neighbors and family gathered at McFarlin Auditorium on Thursday to honor the SMU police officer believed to have drowned during a severe thunderstorm on July 5th.

McCullers served in the Marines for nine years before becoming an SMU officer last February; it was a job he loved.

“Here's a man that would serve each and every one of us daily, with no questions asked, and a smile on his face as he said I cannot wait to do this again tomorrow,” said Mark’s brother-in-law, Ben Nix.

His vehicle has been recovered but the search for McCullers' body unfortunately, continues. Officials say they will not stop until he is located.

Lt. Brian Kelly said, "It's difficult since we haven't located Mark yet, we wanted to honor him, and keep his memory alive, we wanted to have this service and honor him the proper way."

Although he leaves behind a wife and six children, the memory of the amazing mark will never be forgotten.

"My mark made his mark on the world and he has left his mark on me forever,” says his wife, Tiffany McCullers.
