Family always came first for Mark. He was known for his weekly trips to the library, Mark was a voracious reader. Mostly novels, but he’d read just about anything he laid his hands on. True to his Philly roots he cheered on the Eagles and the Phils, though after a few dropped passes he shut the T.V. off and head back to his books. His honest face and smile made him a natural salesman. Later years found him selling for (name of company)
He met a girl named Cathy Gerrard on a blind date arranged by friends. They were immediately smitten and were engaged within 3 months. Their 49 year marriage was blessed with 2 daughters, Maryanne and Maureen Kehoe. Mark is survived by his sister, Nancy Cullen of Lancaster.
