I'm sorry about the sad news. Mark was an inspiration to me. He told me that talent is overrated. "If you've got good looks, an average voice and an award-winning smile you'll go far." Well, since a good run beginning in 2015 ended in 2020 (I've been unemployed for over a year in New York City) regardless, I'm glad Mark encouraged me to follow my dream. Unlike Mark, performing is what I was born to do. So I'm going to hang in there. I'm playing Hodel in an off-Broadway Fiddler production opening in June. Mark's better than average Tevye at the NFC will be ringing in my head. G_d bless you, Mark, for demonstrating in every show in which I saw you, that not knowing your lines isn't fatal to a production. Pheww. Set my mind at ease! Baruch Hashem.

I remember Mark from Amherst Junior High and High School. My confirmation class from Amherst Community Church was exploring other religions and attended a Bar Mitzvah at Mark's Temple. At the reception, Mark approached, saying, "I didn't know you went to Temple here!" He will be remembered for his friendliness! May he be at peace.

I really liked Mark's body of work at the Northeast Florida Conservatory and in the Temple over the years. NFC was an intimate little theater that allowed Mark’s unique qualities to shine on its small audience. Mark was able to raise every performance above mediocre to reasonably enjoyable. He was able to bring a modicum of vitality to roles that were typically not played by a fellow of such advanced age. His singing at the Temple was a driving force for Chabad. Mark and I are Freemasons; so long brother. I am looking forward to your performances in the celestial lodge above. Ma Ha Bone.

I met Mark many years ago playing golf at Deercreek Country Club. I was playing as a single, reciprocating with Club Corp, when Mark ask me to play along. I played with Mark every time I came to Florida. He was a good friend and always up to play.

Such a good man! I met Mark shortly after moving to Jacksonville and he went out of his way to help me meet people and understand the city. I am so grateful to have had such a good friend who had such grace and good humor. My profound sympathy to all his family.

My condolences to all. Mark and I were high school classmates. I was stunned to learn of his passing. He was a great guy, a talented performer as a singer and actor, and a wonderful friend. May he rest in peace. Bob Holloway (Topsfield, Massachusetts, Amherst High School, Class of 1964)

Mark was one of a kind. I loved paying racquetball with him and against him. His stories and jokes will always be remembered. I enjoyed listening to him sing at the Temple.
