CNBC Anchor Mark Haines Dies Unexpectedly at Age 65

This sucks. I really enjoyed Mark's commentary. He was a true capitalist and believer in the free market system. And he had no tolerance for bullshit and would call it out whenever he heard it. And he had that perfectly dry sense of humor.

Everyone on Squawk this morning was sharing anecdotes and emails from viewers. It was sweet and sad.

One of my favorite moments that always sticks out is when the iPhone was being released, and someone was extolling all its features and said, "Come on, who doesn't want one of these?" And Mark raised his hand and said, "I just want to make a call."
