The Prials lived up the street from us on Franklin Pl. Our families were friends. All of us kids played together as an almost inseparable pack. So sorry to hear of Mark's passing. My deepest condolences to the entire family.

So very sorry to hear of Marks’ passing. He played hockey with my brother Russ, also a policeman, and was his best man in his wedding. We all skated together at South Mountain Arena throughout middle school and high school. He actually got me hooked on Southside Johnny music and to this day, Southside remains my favorite band! May he Rest In Peace and may his family find comfort in their many memories together. 🙏💝

I am so very sad to hear of Mark's passing. Mark had a great sense of humor, as do I, which made for a lot of Shenanigans during school. I have a lot of fun memories with him. I am sending prayers to his wife and kids, as well as the rest of his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
