Born in Reading, he was a son of the late Henry W. and Fern (Weaver) Irwin. Mark was the loving husband to Cynthia A. (Lucas) Irwin. On December 16th, they would have celebrated 27 years of marriage.

A member of Kenhorst, Gouglersville, and Lincoln Park Fire Companies, he enjoyed going to auctions, yard sales, antiquing, flea markets and buying and selling on eBay. Mark enjoyed playing poker, debating “Anything,” vacations, his cats, golfing, and gardening, well… “controlling” the garden.

Mark you were a good man and a dear friend during our teenage years and early 20’s. I was so sad when I found out on Christmas Day that you passed in November or I would have been there. You had such a passion for life and always a smile. I will always remember you and I will keep your family in my prayers. Rest In Peace Mark.
