AGE: 58 • Voorhees
On June 24, 2014, Mark passed away surrounded by many loved ones after a long illness. Raised in Barrington, Mark was a 1975 graduate of Haddon Heights High School where he excelled at wrestling and was later inducted into the HHHS Athletic Hall of Fame. After graduation, he began working as a welder for Union Local 322 out of Winslow Township where he continued to work until his retirement last October. Mark's passion for wrestling continued after high school as an HHBL Youth Wrestling Coach to which he devoted many years and much time. He also loved traveling, sailing and his faithful 4-legged friend, Cooper. Mark put up a courageous fight with his illness until the very end. Quitting was a choice that Mark never considered.
Mark was predeceased by his father Lawrence and his brother, David. He is lovingly survived by his wife, Cathy (nee Adams); his children, Brian, Bridget and Kelly; his mother, Gloria L. Robinson (nee Sieck); his brothers, James J. and Christopher J. (Colleen) Robinson; several brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws, many nieces and nephews as well as his Local 322 brothers and his many lifelong friends.
