Mark worked as an engineer and construction inspector for Michael Baker International, mainly out of the company’s Canton location. He was a talented woodworker who also enjoyed biking, camping, working around the house, walking his dog, and spending time with his daughter. Mark was always starting a new project, whether it was for himself or someone else. He was always willing to help friends and family with whatever they needed.
