Mark was an avid Cub and Packer fan, he was a comic relief and delighted children and adults with his Donald Duck impressions and other hilarious voices.

He spent many days at the Lucia cottage on Half Moon Lake in Tomahawk, Wis. with his grandma, Lucille Lucia. He spent many hours fishing for northern pike and playing cards and Scrabble with her.
