Mark was a very generous loving person who never knew a stranger; he loved all of his friends and neighbors especially those Wednesday night socials with his local group. He loved the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers but most of all enjoyed watching his sons play Soccer and football. He was a fisherman and loved traveling to the Abacos, Bahamas, the Florida Keys and the beach. He will dearly miss his yellow Labrador retriever “Buddy” who has been adopted by a dear friend.
