  • Rest in peace, Mark. May your family find some comfort in knowing you are free from all worldly suffering.

  • Mark and I were on the same “ Gas Station” Little League team in the 1960’s. We would ride bikes and hang out at Paragon Park,Strawberry Hill and swim at A St. Pier. Later we were in the same backfield at Hull High on an Undefeated SSL Championship team in 1973. In the the biggest game of the season vs Norwell, Mark threw a great block to spring me for the winning TD!!! Mark never let me forget about it and was always smiling and upbeat. Great memories from long ago. May He Rest In Peace!!

  • Very Sad. My Deepest Sympathy.

  • Sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. Condolences to the family💜
