MARK E. SAUCIER Mark E. Saucier, age 64, of Cranberry Township, passed away on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 in his home. Born August 27, 1952 in Richland, WA, he was the son of the late Gerald J. and JoAnn Elizabeth Pulliam Saucier. Mark graduated from Columbia High School in 1970. He went on to Columbia Basin Commun- ity College and received his A.A. Degree. Furthering his studies, Mark went to Western Washington University and graduated with a B.A. in political science. He worked at a Frans ski shop while in college to help pay his tuition. Mark also worked for O'Brian Skis Company during his Western years. He went on to work in Lewiston, ID, from 1973-1974 with his Uncle Keith as an iron worker. Following that job, Mark worked for WNP-1 in Richland, WA, with a subcontractor from 1975-1976. Mark was an avid water skier and snow skier throughout his life. He spent many years on the Columbia River with family, neighbors and friends. He loved to snow ski at Mission Ridge, White Pass and Canada. He even hitch-hiked with skis in hand to get to the mountains in Montana. Mark and Cindy (Haas) were married in 1982 in Cincinnati, OH. They moved frequently over the next 10 years spending the majority of that time Hobart, IN collecting extended family members and a second daughter, Morgan, along the way. In 1994, they moved to Cranberry Twp., PA and Mark spent the next 22 years working for SSM Industries, Inc. as the Nuclear Power Division Manager. Mark dedicated his life to helping others and inspired others to do the same. One of his greatest passions and joys was volunteering at the Jubilee Soup Kitchen. He spent weekends and holidays there helping others, whether that meant washing dishes, cooking for 200 of his closest friends, giving a friend a ride, serving on the Jubilee board or just listening to someone who needed a friend. He was always willing to lend a hand and never judged anyone. He gave not only his time and heart but also part of himself. In 2015, Mark made his milestone 300th blood platelet donation at the Pittsburgh Central Blood Bank. You could find Mark recharging with his extended families at Fat Heads Saloon in the SouthSide or Mad Mex in Cranberry Twp. Mark was accepting, giving, but above all, loving. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife of 34 years, Cindy Saucier; his daughters, Carey (Richard Reid) Haas and Morgan Saucier; his grandson, Austin Haas-Reid, and his sisters, Paula (James) Perez and Patricia (Les) Troyer and several nieces and nephews. Friends are invited to join the family from 1-4 PM on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at Fat Heads Saloon, 1805 E. Carson St., Pittsburgh, PA 15203. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 AM on Monday, February 13, 2017 at St. Ferdinand Catholic Church, 2535 Rochester Rd., Cranberry Twp., PA 16066. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Boylan-Glenn-Kildoo Funeral Home, Inc., 130 Wisconsin Ave., Cranberry Twp., PA 16066.
