I would like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of mark. I have many warm memories of our years together and the way we were. We always had fun things to look forward to and stayed busy doing what we loved. We would go snow skating various resorts jet skiing around the rivers of Pittsburgh and snow mobile in Monroeville. We spent hours on his ham radios in the basement Of his mom and dad's house. We went white water rafting in Ohiopyle and we survived the Double Hydraulic each time. We loved going with our friends especially cousins Jill, Marty and Bruce. We would have fun driving all over Pgh picking up brake shoes for his dad. We went to great New Years eve parties at the Holiday House with Michael and Lynnie where we would swim all night.
We had a great Florida vacation where we went snorkeling, deep sea diving and best of all scuba diving at Key Largo.We had a really good time raising guinea pigs and building cages for Trooper and company. We always had a great time hanging out with our best friends Tom and Joanie Naylor and especially Lynnie and Michael and their kids. We always had fun tooling around in Mark's yellow Caddie convertible. Mark was a one of a kind truly unique individual who will be very missed.RIP until we meet again. Xo
