Mark graduated from Jeff Tech with the class of 1974 from the machine shop program and later pursued drafting courses through Penn State DuBois.

After his early retirement, he spent a great deal of time assisting his Amish friends.

Always an avid outdoorsman, Mark was a member of the National Turkey Federation, the NRA, Pennsylvania Wildlife Habitat Unlimited, and the Sinnemahoning Sportsmen’s Club.

He enjoyed spending time with family at camp and viewing the elk in Benezette.
