O'Connor, Mark
May 1, 1955 - Nov 12, 2020
Mark Stephen O'Connor passed away November 12, 2020 in North Port, FL. Mark was a persistent individual who put others before himself. His life was devoted to family, friends and public service. From his time as a Lieutenant on the Scituate Police Department in his home State of Rhode Island, to his time as a Sarasota County Code Enforcement Specialist and City of Nokomis Fire Commissioner, Mark made an impact on many lives. He was a beloved father, brother, uncle, father-in-law, and dear friend. His newest but greatest title was grandpa "papa."
Mark is survived by his loving son Lieutenant Daniel O'Connor DCFR, daughter in law Jennifer, grandson Lucas James, brother Peter O'Connor, sister in law Marcia O'Connor, and companion Bridgette Bortz.
Mark is predeceased by his loving wife Suzanne O'Connor, father Daniel J. O'Connor, mother Mildred O'Connor, and brother Daniel "Danny" O'Connor.

I am sad to hear of the passing of Mark. It's so difficult after Suzanne's passing. I wish the family peace, especially Daniel, who I never met. I met your mother in high school. I met your father 35 years ago through Suzanne. He was always very nice to me. My best to the family.
