Backus Hospital with his family by his side after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. He was born May 14, 1957 in Gainesville, Florida to James and Lorraine Mills. He was a former Fitch Falcon Alumni who excelled in football and wrestling. He went on to serve his country as a part of the 264th Engr. Co in the United States Army. Upon being honorably discharged, Mark began his career at Electric Boat where he has worked for the past 35 years in the rigging department, making his way up to General Foreman.

He was a true handyman and loved gardening and working around the house. He loved sports and was an avid Boston Bruins, Red Sox and New York Giants fan. The thing Mark cherished most in life, however, was being Papa to his three grandsons: Dominic Balabin, Kolby and Mason Mills.
