Mark Roger Durand, beloved husband, dad, and grandpa, passed away on Thursday, October 17, 2019, in Hernando Beach, FL. Mark was born on December 9, 1956, in Woonsocket, RI, to Marcel Durand and Adrienne Therien. He grew up in West Palm Beach, FL; attended Twin Lakes High School, and enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served as an IC2 aboard the USS Yosemite. He was preceded in death by his parents Marcel and Adrienne, and his brother, Michael. He leaves to mourn his passing the love of his life and devoted wife Debra Marie Durand; and their three wonderful children, of whom he was very proud, Shannon Marie Mason (Mark) of Lake Worth, FL, Christina Marie Fritz (Rob), of Lake Worth, FL, and Joshua Cody Durand, of West Palm Beach, FL. He also leaves behind his bright and cheerful grandchildren, whom he cherished greatly, Keira and Robert Fritz. He is also survived by his sisters Jeannine Jerauld (Glenn), of Aurora, CO, and Lori and Paulette Durand. He will also be deeply missed by his many friends and extended SCI family and co-workers, along with his nieces, nephews and cousins, and grand-puppies and grand-kitties. Mark lived in West Palm Beach, FL, working as a concrete contractor all thoughout South Florida following his service in the Navy. He was a solid foundation of his family and an avid lover of the outdoors; he passed his love of fishing and the ocean to his children and grandchildren. His family will always remember him for his dedication, wisdom about life, singular resolve (stubbornness), and compassionate spirit. He loved to grow vegetables to share with his family and friends, he was quick with a hearty joke, and he easily bonded with both people and animals.

I luv you big brother you will always be that young kid coming home from construction work asking me to iron your pants for you to go out or riding in the woods with you in a four wheel drive and just a hard worker and good provider for your family. Wish you could have more yrs left to enjoy more of what you worked so hard for in life. My condolences to your children and to debbie you are all in our thoughts. We as your sisters are also finding this very hard to fathom brother we luv and will miss you dearly. Fly hi brother fly hi
