Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Mark C. Fuller, a Taylor native and longtime Old Forge resident, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday at Regional Hospital. He was only 59 years old.
Born on April 17, 1964 and raised in Taylor, Mark was the beloved son of Lois (Clarke) Fuller of Taylor and the late James W. Fuller, who preceded Mark in death on November 26, 2021.
A football standout and 1982 graduate of Riverside High School, Mark next attended Susquehanna University on a football scholarship where he earned his degree in Business Management upon his 1986 graduation. While at college, he also became a fraternity member at Lambda Chi Alpha where his fraternity brothers ultimately became an extended family to Mark for the rest of his life.
He launched his career in warehousing and logistics with ABF Freight in Long Island before returning home to work for various corporations including, most recently, J.B. Hunt Transport Services.
Simply put, to know Mark was to love him. If you’re reading this, you probably have your own personal memories with Mark. The positive impact he left on the lives of family and friends is immeasurable. Known as “Uncle Mark” to countless, he had a tremendously positive influence on the lives of so many. His ability to connect with anyone in his presence was amazing, and no one will ever forget his smile, his blue eyes and his laugh.
A lifelong and loyal sports fan, he loved his Miami Dolphins and New York Yankees, and upon Mark’s passing, The Rolling Stones lost one of their biggest fans. He attended over twenty Stones’ concerts across four decades. Never one to pass up an event or celebration, Mark treasured the Christmas holiday above all others and lived each day like it was Christmas morning. The countdown to Christmas was always on. Mark’s presence was larger than life and his impact on others was extraordinary. His genuine, kind and warm spirit was felt by all who knew him. He will never be forgotten.
In his final act of selflessness, Mark was a Gift of Life organ donor upon his death. Through his kindness, his memory and his legacy will long live on.

Fuller, Jr. and wife Maureen of Endicott, N.Y., Susan Graham and husband Timothy of North Wales, Ellen Raino and husband Gregg of Clarks Summit, Karen Fuller of Taylor, and Donald Fuller and wife Terry of Mechanicsburg; adoring nieces and nephews James Fuller and wife Amanda, Ryan and Christopher Fuller, Sarah, Emily and Katie Graham, Liam Raino and Flynn Fuller; numerous cousins and countless friends; and his special buddies Jake, Alex, Zachary and Gunnar, of whose lives Mark was proud to be a part.
