Mark David Leblang who after beginning his career in advertising art developed his skills in sales to become Oxi- Clean’s international television marketer in its early days under the name Mark Albertson, died on Friday April 30 at Courtyard Towers in Mesa, Arizona. He was 75. Presenting products on TV to audiences in London, Japan and Germany, Mark had an infectious laugh and enjoyed bringing everyone into the latest joke. He was born in 1946 and grew up in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, the youngest son of Irene Ruth (Hark) and Albert Bernhart Leblang. He attended Owen J. Roberts High School and worked after class in his father’s home products business, The Boys Linoleum Store, long a presence on the main shopping street in Pottstown. He studied art at Hussian College in Philadelphia and worked in advertising sales at a number of Philadelphia radio stations. After moving to Arizona in the 1990’s, he owned and operated two restaurants in the Phoenix area: Belly Fillers in Scottsdale, and Philly Cheese Steaks in Chandler, AZ. Following a series of strokes in 2014, Mark moved into Courtyard Towers, a high-rise independent and memory-care senior residence in Mesa, Arizona. Having regained his strength he became much the life of the party at Courtyard, serving as bartender for resident events and general all-around raconteur. He was much beloved by the Courtyard community and will be dearly missed. Mark is survived by his older brother, Nathan Leblang, of Phoenix, Arizona. Arrangements are being handled by Sinai Mortuary of Arizona.

Mark was such a great person, he was always willing to help someone out, and he had a heart as big as his personality. Mark and I spend many an evening driving from Pottstown down to Phila to go clubbing (he know the hot spots to go), this was after his time at WIBG radio station. After partying all evening we would head to the Marriott on city line Ave., have breakfast and drive back to Pottstown get home around 3 AM and yet we both got up to work for our parents at 7 AM swearing we would not do that again but yep next night off we would go He was such a great friend, and best man at my wedding. His infectious laugh, smile and handlebar mustache will be missing. Rest in peace my friend.

I graduated with Mark 1963 OJR. For a Senior class play, he and another classmate made a large cardboard box. 1 slot for money, other for tickets. You put in money, a ticket for the play came out. One High school reunion, he raised money for next reunion, he played an auctioneer. He said you will be "amazed!" In the paper bag was 2 ears of Indian corn! He was small in stature, but LARGE in personality and friendship. May God comfort all family and friends. Art Mauger, fellow classmate.

I graduated with Mark, AT OJR 1963. For a Sr. Class play, he & another classmate designed a large cardboard box. 1 slot for money, other for tickets. Mark INSIDE the box. NO ONE, I think knew he was in there. For 1 reunion, he was an auctioneer. He raised money for next reunion. He said you will be "amazed!" In a bag were 2 ears of Indian corn! He was small in stature, but LARGE in personality and warmth. Art Mauger, fellow classmate.
