I first met Mark in Junior High School and he and I continued the friendship through High School in New School and our early years of undergraduate school. He was intelligent, thoughtful and above all a caring person. His father was a holocaust survivor, so there was also a deeper strength and passion just below the surface.

 All through New School we went to concerts and shows and somehow safely found a ride home. I still remember seeing Miles Davis at the Smiling Dog Saloon (legally) with him when I turned eighteen. It was on a trip to  NYC during a winter break  he started speaking about theatre production. We lost touch over the years and only recently were we able to reconnect.  The last time was a short phone call because it was apparent how hard it was for him. 

When I think back to those special people I was privileged to know and grow up with,  Mark was one who made life so much richer.  I will miss him very much.

I remember Mark as a fun classmate and (at least at one point) a purveyor of bagels at Bialey's.  It seems he lived a remarkable life, doing a lot of things.  I wonder what his connection to cystic fibrosis was.

So sad to hear of the passing of Mark, one of my favorites at Heights. Such a creative and happy guy. My condolences to the family.

Mark was such a nice person. Ironically, I was reminiscing about him just yesterday! When we were in high school, Mark, Cheryl Porris and I took a trip to the art museum, on a rainy day. Mark complimented me for appreciating the sound of the rain on the roof of the car. In reading his bio, it is not surprising that he gravitated towards the arts. His accomplishments are very impressive. I send my prayers and deep sympathy to his wife and children for this great loss.
