Mark was a union labor foreman for Marois Brothers in Worcester for 26 years, retiring due to illness in 2020. Mark started carpentry at a young age, alongside his father, grandfather, and brother. Outside of his dedication to union work, Mark spent a significant amount of time doing side work with his lifelong late friend Gregg “Sully” Szalay. During the winter months, Mark enjoyed snow removal. However, his favorite season of all, was hunting season. Devotion and dedication to hunting trips with friends and family filled his “free time.” He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph’s Church in Charlton. Mark had the greatest friends ever who spent an extraordinary amount of time and effort to help him hunt when he found it difficult to get around. His family meant everything to him. Mark built his life with his hands and lived it with his heart.
