Elliott and I send our heartfelt sympathy and know Mark will be greatly missed by many.

Craig Marshak

Mark, your delicious sarcasm will be terribly missed. We even laugh today thinking back the incident with Joseph and the Double Whopper. Our friendship was special over all the years that our son called you "Uncle Mark!" And our friendship included you making me Romanian foot long hotdogs all of these years, behind managements back. Please rest in peace.
Audrey, Mike and Craig

Uncle Mark was my foster father. He was funny, wise, and a good role model/father figure. One of the wise things he said was about my mother. He said that I was a twinkle in her eye before I was born. He meant my biological mother and father loved me just as my foster family loved me and I did them. My own father and mother took care of me until I was a teenager and I still keep in touch with my biological father and foster family including my Aunt JoAnn and my Uncle Mark's side of the family.
It is sad that Uncle Mark is no longer with us, he's in our prayers.
