  • Outstanding dedication to work,
    Was a hallmark signature of Mark.
    He worked beyond the call of duty,
    with utmost efficiency and sincerity.

    He was more than a Seven Star Realtor,
    And beyond a great friend.
    He had the most pleasant character,
    And he battled leukemia with a majestic end.

    His physical presence will be missed,
    But his sprit will always be cherished.
    He will remain an evergreen inspiration.
    As he ascends the highest heaven.

  • Love knows no boundaries and those who love us never go away. While Mark is no longer with us, his spirit will always be around us. My sincerest condolences to Mark and Lucy’s families for an incredibly great loss. Mark had great character and a very big heart. I’ll never forget the fond memories of Mark, Lucy, Dan and I playing with the ouija board, watching movies together and eating wonderful dinners with great conversations. Mark, you will be sorely missed but will always be with me in spirit.

  • The best thing about Mark was how he loved my aunt Lucy. Mark’s incredibly caring, selfless, and generous character was evident in how happy he made Lucy. I am grateful to have welcomed Mark as a member of my family, and I am even more grateful for how he embraced us as his own with an open heart. I am proud to have had Mark as my uncle. He was a truly loving man.

  • I only met Mark a couple of times, but I heard nothing but great things about him from Lucy- my friend- his girlfriend. Mark, you made her so happy. I wish I had more time to get to know you, and you had more time with Lucy! You are missed, but will never be forgotten!

    My deepest sympathies go out to you Lucy, your and his family!

  • I am sorry for your loss of your dear loved one. May you receive comfort from one another, loving friends, and God’s Word. It is through the privilege of prayer that we can experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way.

  • Mark,
    You are, and still are, the love of my life. You held up your personality of being my favorite stubborn mule till the end. You are my one and only DD. And that doesn’t stand for our favorite coffee “Dunkin”. I feel as if you are still here and I will always feel that way! Love you always and forever and looking forward to seeing you in my dreams. xog BabyLu!

  • Mark is gone way too soon. I know he will be missed by so many and remembered with love as well. I so enjoyed seeing the two of you together; how happy and in love. Your visit to Buffalo was non stop fun. It was special to see how you could spend every minute together and enjoy it. You were so fortunate to find each other and yet the time together was too short. I believe you when you say that he was the love of your life and you will love him forever. May you find strength and peace in that love.

  • Mark was one of those people who you felt should always be there. It s truly difficult to think otherwise. In our memories, in our thoughts, yes, he will always be there. To many of us he was Mr. New Year’s Eve. And he will be with us this December 31st. That s why I am not going to say goodbye, just Happy New Year, Mark

  • Mark was always a dependable colleague, always ready to lend a hand. Our conversations at work, both serious and silly, always ended with alot of laughs and smiles, although our opinions and beliefs were often at opposite ends. So happy Mark and Lucy were able to come down to Roton Point this summer. Although Mark was not feeling great, he put on his Yankees hat and many sweaters, and off we went with Lucy at his side. I’ll never forget the visual of Mark and Lucy sitting in Adirondack chairs overlooking our beautiful shoreline.
    Rest In Peace my friend.

  • Mark was a quiet gentleman who I was privileged to call my friend. Lucy, before you & Mark invited Doris and me to a casual dinner with friends on your apartment building’roof, I knew of Mark, but didn’t really know Mark. Doris had mentioned him often when she worked with him in Pru Real Estate, and I’d see him at some social events that were loosely associated with the office. I knew very early that he saw the world in much the same way as I do and that he was a quiet, but in no way bashful man. It was with you that I came to know him better and came to consider him truly as a friend. My definition of friend includes someone who I can depend on and who knows he/she can depend on me. It was easy to get there with him and you. I understand a little better what a profound loss you and Mark’s other family and friends have suffered, because I too was shocked and saddened. I ask God’s blessing on all who knew and loved him and I am thankful to have known him.

  • Lucy, it is hard to put into words how much Mark meant to us. From our days at Prun and then continued after I left the company, you and Mark kept in close contact. We loved our dinners, movies, concerts and parties and just plain hanging out with you both. You were always such an easy couple to be with. Mark was the most loving, positive, complimentary and inclusive person we have been blessed to know. We miss him every day and think about you and the very tough journey ahead of you. I know you miss him most of all. We know Mark is looking down and sees how incredibly strong you are and is beamed by with pride. Love you! ❤️

  • I will miss Mark, my niece Lucy’s lovely boyfriend. He was my friend too. I don’t bike, but he found unique urban adventures, and I spent New Year’s Eve at their special neighbors’ party. My heart breaks for Lucy. My thoughts go to Shana, and thanks to Wendy.
    With love, Aunt Paula

  • Lucy – all of us who knew you and Mark and were so aware of your happiness together have been so saddened by his loss. He will be remembered every New Years Eve when you and he hosted the 12th floor party – and when he changed my light bulbs! He will be with us again in spirit on 12/31.
    Much love, Carol

  • To Mark — you were truly a member of our family and we will miss you beyond measure. From our far-flung adventures in Africa — to weekends in Stockbridge — to celebratory dinners both at 1100 Park and in restaurants around town — you were an integral part of everything we did for over 12 years. You and Lucy had a very special relationship and that spilled out onto all of us. We loved being with you and you will be in our hearts and thoughts whenever we have a family occasion from now on. We will look after Lucy as best as we can — but no one will ever be able to do that like you! Love always from Mom and Dad.

  • Dear Mark,

    Thank you for bringing out the absolute best in my sister Lucy. You expanded her world to include biking and other outdoor adventures, ethnic foods at favorite hole-in-the wall restaurants, historical sites, street fairs and art museums. Lucy loved doing all of these activities with you, and I will make sure she keeps up the habit of trying out new adventures. Your dedication to Charley’s Fund was truly incredible; you faithfully donated in honor of every special occasion and raised thousands of dollars through the Charley Ride and 5-borough bike tour. Now that I’ve met Shana, your friends, and your co workers, I can see that you not only touched our lives, but so many others as well. You were a loving father, a trusted and respected coworker, and a dear friend. A good man is hard to find, and I’m so grateful that my sister found one. I only wish you didn’t have to leave so soon. Love, Tracy
