SHAVERTOWN — Mark Eugene Smith, 47, of Shavertown, passed away Nov. 25, 2018, in his home.

Born on March 2, 1971, in California to Margaret Vasquez and Steve Smith, Mark was instantly one-in-a-million.

Mark served passionately as Pride Mobility's general manager of public relations and consumer research for the past 18 years. Aside from this, Mark was a pioneer in the complex rehab industry, a renowned writer, profound public speaker and a fierce advocate for disability rights.

Most importantly, he was a loving husband to the love of his life, Holly, and a loving father to his two daughters, Emily and Annabelle. He is also survived by his brother and sister, Steve and Amanda, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Mark's empathy, humor and love for others will be missed. A drop-in style celebration of life will be held 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 1, at Fire and Ice on Toby Creek, Trucksville.

Donations to The Muscular Dystrophy Association can be made in lieu of flowers.

Please find comfort in knowing your Heavenly Father understands all that you feel and will bring you thru this time of great sorrow. Please pour out all of your heart's anxieties on Him in prayer "because He cares for you" (1 Peter 5: 6, 7).

Mark was an extraordinary, extremely kind, generous, and compassionate professional, as well as an inspiration for those of us who are disabled. We are heartbroken and shall miss him profoundly.

Mark always lit up a room - his energy was infectious as was his laugh. I'll fondly remember our conversations at many an industry event. My thoughts are with his loved ones - be comforted by the difference that Mark made to the lives of so many.

I dealt with Mark on a professional level where he fed me stories and PR for the journalism mill. He was a pro's pro who did his job extremely well. I am now finding out about his extraordinary life beyond the PR profession. He will indeed be missed.

Mark will never be forgotten. He was a force of nature and anyone who came in contact with him immediately felt his energy, humor, positivity and warmth. To say he is an inspiration to us all, is an understatement. Rest peacefully dear Mark, and thank you for all you have done for the world. Caroline Stover
