Throughout the years, Mark lived in Syracuse, Rochester and most recently he had been staying in Wayland assisting his parents. Mark was employed at a couple different places throughout the years; however, for nearly 20 years he was the manager of mail courier services at the University of Rochester. During his tenure, he was elected President of the National Association of College and University Mail Services (NACUMS) and was recognized as a leader within his industry. Mark’s social circle started with a regular gathering of Dungeons and Dragons enthusiasts who morphed into lifelong friends. Mark was a history buff, enjoyed reading mythology and science fiction, and had a lifelong interest in stamp collecting. He was very naturally talented at anything that could catch his interest, including original stained glass designs, Eastern European Easter eggs, and painting museum quality miniatures. He especially enjoyed traveling to exotic locales throughout Europe, the Caribbean and Africa. He was very social and was always a welcome face on Wednesday night at dart league.
