He is predeceased by his parents Herman, Jean, and his sister Georgina. He is survived by his daughter: Ashley (Phil) Pantalleresco, grandchildren: Blake, Tucker and Charlotte, and his siblings Eva, Fred, William, Moonie, Ernie and Eleanor. He will be fondly remembered by his nieces, nephews, his dog Molly, and lifelong friend Tommy. Mark lived a life devoted to his family, friends, and hard work.
