Mark lived his life to the fullest, always with a positive attitude. He enjoyed sports, theater, singing, beach, traveling, and spending quality time with his husband, friends, and family.
Mark believed in giving back to his community and helping others. These values were present throughout his life, including his successful and varied careers as an actor, model, employment coach, health care professional, and—most recently—working at a law firm. As a friend and family member, he was always willing to provide a sympathetic ear and make himself available for any help needed.
Mark also loved being part of the Rehoboth Beach community for the past 20 years. He enjoyed socializing, playing tennis, and spending time at Poodle Beach. He was very proud of his contributions to CAMP Rehoboth’s LGBTQ community support programs, including acting in and writing many successful scripts for the beloved CAMP Rehoboth Follies.
