What a good and decent man! Having played pool with and against Mark for many years, I know the leagues won’t feel the same without his contagious passion and competitive spirit. More important than his skill set, I always admired how loyal he was to his friends and family. Many prayers go out to them from many people, I’m sure. God bless.

I'm still in shock! One of my best friends for 36 years! Got to work with him for 30 years! So many great memories it's hard to pick. One of my favorites is in 1985 when I brought Mark to a Patriots game and we froze are asses off and he brought me to see Pink Floyd at Sullivan stadium. What a time we had. One of the funniest guys too! I got to play softball with Mark for 3 years. He had a lot of skills and was very competitive. He will leave a hole in my life that can't be filled. Love ya Bro!

Anyone who played pool in this area knew you as a force to be reckoned with. We also knew you as a man who was respected for your talent and grace on and off the pool table. You will be missed. The knowledge you shared will be around always. Fly high....xo

My Dear Friend Mark, I have known you for 25 years and can honestly say you are one of the best persons I have ever known. You never had a bad word to say about anyone and always had a friendly smile. I have played pool for 60 years and during those years you are one of the best I have had the pleasure to be associated with. You and I played partners together in tournaments and we did well. I will miss you alot and will never forget you. RIP my friend and may God Bless your soul.

It’s a sad day for all of us to hear of your passing. Although I haven’t known you as long as some others you truly were an amazing man. I met you at the pool hall years ago and got to know you and took the advice you gave me. You made the game fun coaching me to beat you which I never understood or accomplished but I never complained. I know You did it to keep the game interesting for you. Hopefully these words can give some comfort to your Family in these tough times.
