Mark Anthony Colin Bader Obituary
Mark Anthony Colin Bader

AGE: 33 • Wilmington

Mark Anthony Colin Bader was given his wings on September 4th, 2016. He was born in the winter of 1982 in Wilmington, DE. Mark attended Immaculate Heart of Mary School, Salesianum, and graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School. He won a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, but attended University of the Arts in Philadelphia.

Mark was a classically trained pianist. He was also self-taught in guitar, bass, harmonica, and ukulele. Mark was influenced at a young age by contemporary and gospel music from performing masses at St Helena's Church where he still played. He loved blues and combined it with jazz to compose and perform his music locally with many musician friends and family. When Mark played he could touch people's souls and silence the room with his music.

Mark was preceded in death by his grandfather, George Bader, Sr.

He is survived by his parents, Mark and Alicia Bader; his brothers, Justin, Bryan and Kevin; Joanne Dunford, who was the love of his life and the twinkle in his eye; his paternal grandmother, Lucille Bader; his maternal grandparents, Gerald and Elizabeth Campbell; aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. We will miss our Mark dearly.

The Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Tuesday September 13th, 2016 at 12 Noon at St. Helena's Church, 602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809. Friends and family may call on from 10 AM to 12 PM at St. Helena's. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to St. Helena's Church, 602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809.
