I worked with Mark for many years prior to 1996 in Baltimore at the Walter P. Carter Center and before that in Crownsville at the Crownsville Hospital Center. Mark was an outstanding person who always brought something positive to the workplace. He was a senior leader in the positions he held but more importantly, he was a senior leader by nature. Mark was especially level headed and well grounded. Even more so at times when something difficult came up. At the same time, Mark was always pleasant to work with and brought a great deal of positive energy to the workplace. There were many times when Mark made things go better. I am very sorry to learn of his passing and wish to express my condolences to his family and to everyone who was close to him.

I loved my Uncle Mark dearly and there is a void in my heart and soul today which can never be filled. I will miss him terribly. Mark was the sweetest, kindest man. Gentle in nature and never spoke an unkind word. He was a fun loving uncle to me and my husband and sons. Unassuming, humble and selfless, with the ability to make you feel like the most important person in the room. The happy memories we made in OC & Rehoboth, and at the annual yard sales, and the traditional holiday get togethers( which he beautifully hosted) and birthdays are and will be what get me through this void in my heart and in our family. Mark was a grateful person w/ a grateful heart. Mark will be forever remembered for his positivity even during his final months, and the way he showed me and others how to be kind, loving and happy. I am honored to have been his niece.

I have known Mark for many years because he was the one that trained me in the Birth Certificate Registration process that I still do to this day, at Howard County General Hospital. I first worked with him in the mid 1990's when the computer system was ancient for this tedious process. I would call him routinely just to catch up, have some laughs and of course work conversation too! He was always willing to walk me through any complicated Birth Registration situation and even came out to see me from time to time at my office over the years. I will miss his laugh and his radiant smile! Your friend, Sandy Roos

Mark was a kind person and a fantastic neighbor. “Team Roanoke”, which is what we call our block, will forever miss him and his friendliness, neighborliness, and kindness. We are simply heartbroken to have lost him. Much love to his friends, family, and Tony. You are in our hearts. Much love from his “hood”. ❤️
