Mark grew up in Garland and was a 1990 graduate of Dexter Regional High School. He worked in the woods with his father beginning at an early age and there was no equipment that Mark could not operate. He hauled wood with a tractor trailer in all kinds of conditions. Mark worked as a truck driver for 30 years for Garelick Farms, BSP and most recently for Oakhurst Dairy. Mark was a truck and tractor pulling enthusiast with Maine Truck and Tractor Pulling Association having won several awards over the years. He also enjoyed hiking, mud running, four wheeling and he was an excellent cook. He was mechanically inclined and could fix about anything. He enjoyed his tractors and was happiest operating heavy equipment. Mark made a positive impact on everybody he met.
