MARK E. ROESLER, of Reading, Mass., passed away on Monday, June 22, 2020. Born June 30, 1965, Mark epitomizes what it means to be a father, husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, godfather, and true friend. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him, especially for his giant golden heart and trade-MARK-ed catch phrases. He attended Bishop Luers High School in Fort Wayne, the University of Notre Dame, and lived and worked on the East Coast since 1987. Mark was larger than life. He worked hard, played harder, and would (did) give anyone the shirt off his back. He had many loves after his family, including his house on Maine's Moosehead Lake, snowmobiling, family fishing trips to Chapleau, golf, grilling, and 4th of July pyrotechnics on Sylvan Lake... "if I run, you run!" Mark is survived by his beloved wife, Jennette Thomas. He was loving father to Elizabeth Roesler, Luke Roesler, Samantha Fallon, Christopher Fallon; and cherished bulldogs, Lucy and Annie. He is the beloved son of Max Roesler III and Ginny "Baa" Roesler of Rome City; loving brother of Max Roesler IV (Kathy) and Michael Roesler (Karen) of Fort Wayne, Sheila Roesler of Indianapolis, and Susan Garringer (Tom) Filus of Rome City. Mark is also survived by his in-laws, Mary, Cheryl, and Karen. Uncle Mark will be missed terribly by nieces and nephews, Max V, Thomas, Benjamin, Sarah, Morton, Michael, Madolin, Chloe, Cadence and Harlequin. Mark cherished countless special friends and extended family. Family and friends are invited to gather and share memories with his family from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 27, 2020, at Doherty - Barile Family Funeral Home. A Celebration of Life is planned for a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association.

Mark was a true leader.
Committed to his responsibility & proud of his associates.
He never took anyone or anything for granted.

Always up to a request & willing to support.
My direct time with Mark was short, however impactful.
Thanks for your direction and insight!

My deepest condolences for your loss. Mark was my friend and classmate at Notre Dame and Dillon Hall. We were teammates our intra hall "touch" football dream team and some of my best college memories were the Thursday night gatherings at his house on 601 Corby Street. He was on our five man crew that toured Europe for several weeks immediately after graduating from ND. He and I partnered for about 1,000 hands of Euchre during that trip of which we probably won 990 of them due to his sharp mind. And nothing since has ever quite lived up to the nights in Munich with Mark. I had the good fortune to live in Stamford the year after graduation when Mark was there with GE Capital. I lost touch with him after I moved back to Michigan for no good reason, but that was my loss. He was a "big" man in the finest sense of the word and truly had a heart of gold. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. He will be dearly missed.

Our deepest sympathies for the devastating loss of Mark. There aren't adequate words to express what his loss must mean to you all. We are forever grateful for the kindness & inclusion he showed to our Mom the many years she lived with Mari and Charlie. May the great memories you have bring you the laugh or smile needed most in the coming days, weeks , and months ahead.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mark at the Bank. He was so talented yet so modest, and it was clear how dedicated he was to helping people through these recent challenging months of financial crisis. I orchestrated a photo shoot of senior management, and when I asked Mark if he could let me know which photo in his gallery was his favorite, he told me that he wanted his wife to make the final decision. His family was always top of mind. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
