Mark died Jan. 16, 2017, in Athens, Ga., surrounded by his family, following a two-year struggle with ALS.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga., Mark came to Princeton from Westminster Boys High School. He matriculated with the Class of 1973 and graduated with the Class of 1976. Mark concentrated his studies in philosophy and literature, and was a member of Terrace Club. During a break from college in 1974, he met the love of his life and wife of 33 years, Jane Howell of Atlanta.
After graduation from Princeton, Mark continued postgraduate study in philosophy and earned advanced degrees from the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University. He and Jane married and settled in Georgia.
In 1989, following the birth of their first son, Mark pivoted from his academic career to retrain as a psychotherapist at the University of Georgia. He worked for two decades at the Family Counseling Services in Athens. He and Jane, a physician, together raised their two sons in Athens.
The class extends deepest sympathy to Jane, sons Owen and Thomas, sisters Martha and Claire, and extended family.
