He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University and went on to a successful career as CFO of Leviton Manufacturing Co., Inc. before retiring from his beloved position in 2021.
Mark was kind, loving and generous to all. He was an excellent athlete, loved to play many sports (tennis, basketball, softball, ping-pong, biking) and was a skilled musician (guitar and piano).
