Mason County Probate Court Judge Mark Raven is 60 years old and he's getting out while the getting is good, as they say.
An avid swimmer with numerous hobbies, he's healthy and he's planning to enjoy that health and his retirement.
Whether he spends his time golfing or fishing or ever gets around to that photography class he's been considering remains to be seen. He's not too worried about those choices after a career of tough decisions.
Raven was elected in 1994 and served 18 years. He has been an attorney or judge for 33 years.
The son of Dean Raven, a former chairman of the Mason County Board of Commissioners, Mark worked as an attorney in Michigan and Virginia before running for probate judge. He said he knew a little of what the job of probate court judge entailed, and he learned the rest on the fly, as he had to.

RAVEN RETIRES
...

Raven said mediation is a great tool because it allows the parties more input into the settlement rather than just having them present facts and having the judge decide.
"I've been very pleased with the outcomes," Raven said.
Time to go
Raven said he just knows it's time to leave the bench.
"I'll miss the people," he said. "I'll miss the intellectual challenges. However, there comes a time in all of our lives when it's time to move on."
And 18 years after replacing Judge Francis Bourisseau, an appointee of Governor G. Mennen Williams, that time is now for Raven.
