Mark was a loyal, funny, caring dad and friend. He will be remembered for being his sons’ soccer coach. Also he and his sons loved to go camping with the Boy Scouts and take skiing trips with just the “boys”. The family loved spending time in Ocean City, MD, going to the beach, boating, and tubing. Mark loved to cook for his many friends and family. He had an infectious smile and laugh that will never be forgotten.
