My condolences Mrs. Roy, no one should have to lose a child. Mark
always worked just a little harder than others, whether it was baseball, school, or work. He was a good big brother as well. It is always difficult to lose a good person at a young age. He is remembered fondly by many, that says a lot.
(Bruce, give me a call or an email)

I worked with Mark for many years at EB, in the shipyard. He was always dependable, a go-to guy. He was a pleasure to work with and when we weren't talking work we were talking baseball. We figure we played against one another in high school. I liked Mark a lot and considered him a friend. I had not seen or talked to Mark for a few years as I have been in New London so I was surprised and saddened by this.
My condolences to his family. Mark was a good man who will be missed by many I am sure.

Wow, Mark was such a fun and talented kid, a great teammate and opponent. We opposed each other in Little League, then teamed up in high school and American Legion ball. So sad to see another old Montville buddy and teammate pass so early. My deepest condolences to all of the family. God bless.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of Mark. I knew Mark from my high school days and he always was a great guy to me. Friendly, outgoing and always willing to share a laugh with you. I want to express my sincere condolences to his brother "B" and his mom Vi. Rest in peace my friend.

So sorry to hear about Mark's passing, I played little league baseball with him, Mark was a wonderful player and the first person to pass his knowledge of the game on to others.

To Mark, aka "Sparky", "Sparkman": A true Vagabond Hall of Famer! We had way too many great memories, all of which will be with me and your teammates Forever. You were more than a teammate though, just an all around great person. Our prayers are with you! John B.
