CHANKO--Mark S. We mourn Mark's sudden passing on April 29, 2011, at age 83. Mark was the devoted husband of Anita; affectionate and adored father of David (Joni), Ken (Barbara), Todd (Ami), Eric (Susan), and Pamela; doting grandpa of Daniel, Ariel, Nora, Nick, Samantha, Sasha, Gillian, and Eden. He served his country in the Korean War, was awarded the Haskins & Sells Gold Medal for scoring #1 in New York State on the CPA examination, and was an accomplished money manager. Mark was an adept tennis player, avid bridge player, and a lover of theater and the arts. He will be dearly missed. Services will be held on Sunday, May 1, at 11:30am, at Plaza Memorial Chapel, 630 Amsterdam Ave., Manhattan, 800-227-3974. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to The Humane Society and The Actors Fund.
