Mark worked as a custodian for the Hamden Board of Education until 1989, when a brain aneurysm changed his life. He had to learn to walk again and create a new normal. He fought for every step he took, and he never complained. He loved his wife, his family, his large group of friends, and all the dogs and cats he had as companions.
