Mark Richard Dube Obituary
Mark Richard Dube died at home on Thursday January 20, 2011, surrounded by his family and close friends. He was forty-five. Born in Berlin, NH to Roland and Lorraine (Jacques) Dube on May 6, 1965, Mark was the youngest of three children. He spent his childhood years in Auburn, Maine. In his short life, Mark pursued a deep, vast, and specific array of interests, including playing the contra bass and drums, designing and constructing clothing, competing in Cyclocross races, surfing, skiing, record collecting, painting, and reading. Mark threw himself into even the most minute tasks with the type of burning intensity that most people reserve for one lifelong passion. Nowhere was this enormous and unusual passion more obvious than in Mark's relationship with his children. To Mark, nothing was more important or consuming than hand stitching a mask for his son's Halloween costume or playing along to every note of his daughter's viola practice on his contra bass. A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art, Mark was a Layout Engineer at Analog Devices for more than 20 years where he made many lifelong friends. Mark is survived by his parents, Roland and Lorraine Dube of Naples, Maine; his brother Michael of Ware, New Hampshire; his wife Carol and his children Olivia and Rex, and many other beloved relatives and friends. The memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 5, at 1:00 p.m. at First Church in Chestnut Hill, Mass., 26 Suffolk Road. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mark Dube Instrumental Music Scholarship Fund which will provide support for any child within the Brookline Public Schools who wishes to play an instrument and does not have the appropriate funds. Donations may be mailed care of Chris Thoft Brown, SEC, 85 Harvard St., Brookline, MA 02445.
