Mark S. Harrington(1953 - 2012)

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - Mark S. Harrington, 59, returned to his Maker Saturday, November 10, 2012.

He was born in Worcester, Mass., April 25, 1953, the son of Shirley M. (Beaudette) Harrington and the late Kent W. Harrington.

He spent many happy days in Hanover before moving to Pembroke at the age of eight.

He was a graduate of Bishop Brady High School in Concord, Class of 1971. At Brady he enjoyed basketball, but truly excelled at track and cross-country, winning numerous awards and well-deserved recognition.

In addition to his mother, survivors include two sisters and their husbands: Judy and Paul Wolf of Maine and Susan and Roy Lovering of New Hampshire. Mark also leaves three nieces and one nephew: Caitlin Wolf, currently serving in the Peace Corps in Botswana; Lindsay Wolf, teaching while pursuing her Masters degree at Northeastern University in Boston; Chelsea Lovering, a registered nurse on the seacoast; and R. J. Lovering, working toward a Bachelors degree in sports management at Plymouth State University.

Friends and relatives are invited to share memories of Mark Friday, November 16th, from 4 to 7 p.m., at the Petit Funeral Home, 167 Main Street, Pembroke.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, November 17th, at 11 a.m., at St. John the Baptist Church in Allenstown.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) would be much appreciated by the family.
