Mark will be remembered for his vast intellectual curiosity for music, art, science and history. He had a keen appreciation for classical music and often attended string quartet concerts and art museums throughout New England. Mark's interest in science and mathematics began at a young age when he received a telescope for Christmas. A favorite activity was visiting the Wilder Observatory at Amherst College. His interest in natural science led him on many hiking trips to explore various terrains. No hike was complete until an interesting rock specimen or old glass bottle was found to add to his collection. Mark greatly enjoyed reading and collecting books on numerous subjects, including travel destinations he planned to visit. In addition to frequent visits along the New England coastline, Mark took vacation trips to Florida, the Carolinas
, Texas and Arizona.
Mark is survived by two sisters, Laurie Matusko
and her husband Edwin Jr. of Easthampton
