He then worked briefly for Thermoseal untiL landing a position as a forklift operator for Gloucester Terminals LLC for the rest of his employment. He was a Teamster for Local 929.

Mark was very handy. He could fix almost anything. He was a hard worker. He was a strong man who gave cancer a good fight. He sometimes was laid back and other times the life of the party with his antics such as Riddle me this one Batman, or Big Deal that don't impress me.

He loved shuffleboard, music watching tv, BBQ,'s, and the beach. He loved having a few cold ones while watching the Phillies, Miami Dolphins and Nascar. He loved fishing. He loved doing things with the kids and as a family.  Most importantly he loved spending time and making cherished memories with his family and friends.
