MARK KRAMER GUP: Peacefully on Sunday, May 5, 2024, age 93, at residence in Pittsburgh, PA. Husband of Helen Gup. Father of Cynthia Rudolph (Joe) of Punxsutawney, PA; Daniel Gup (Terri Klein) of Pittsburgh, PA; Amy Gup (Joelle Mueller) of Boulder, CO. Brother of Alex Gup and Ann Litvak of Pensacola, FL. Grandfather of Mark Rudolph, Emily Gup, and Noah Gup; great-grandfather of Jonas and Ara Rudolph.

Mark was drawn to tennis from an early age, starting in Pensacola with off-duty Navy airmen and continuing until recently with the many friends he met playing in Pittsburgh.  More than a handful of younger players at Mellon Park recall being bested by him into his late eighties.

Professionally he worked in the field of Marketing Research for several Pittsburgh companies.  In addition, he loved his long-standing teaching career as a part-time Marketing instructor in the University of Pittsburgh Business School.

Mark appreciated time spent outdoors, at the ocean, listening to music, reading, traveling, attending plays and symphonies, learning new things, taking photographs, dancing, and most of all into his last days - spending time with his beloved family and friends.

Mark made friends wherever he went, from growing up in Pensacola to summers in Chautauqua, and more recently as a resident of Weinberg Terrace.

Memorial Service at Temple Sinai, 5505 Forbes Avenue, Squirrel Hill on Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 2:30 PM. Interment Private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to an organization of your choice that is meaningful to you.  Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc.
