From Carolyn Mooney:
Mark had a dry wit and loved opportunities to learn and grow. He was very honorable, devoted and family oriented. He was always looking for ways to assist family members and friends. Giving computers, DVD’s and setting up computers and running virus scans on them as well as giving investment advice and helping his mom and brother with their investing.
Mark served in the Navy for five and a half years leaving as a Lieutenant after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, with the Class of 78. After the military, Mark pursed a career in telecommunications and hardware area networking for call centers. Mark’s last position of 14 years was with National Pen, second largest ink manufacturer in the USA. He loved the challenges it entailed of being very detailed oriented and knowledgeable about the systems he created and maintained.
Mark had many hobbies: Sailing his 30 foot sailboat every chance he got; Being a member of the San Diego Mopar Club and restoring our ‘71 Cuda with assistance from Jack and Lee; Reading war history and sci-fiction books and collecting them for our little in-house library; Traveling to many parts of the world, the Orient, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Caribbean and in the USA. We took many pictures to remember the good times.
Mark is survived by his wife Carolyn Mooney (28 years of marriage), his brother Michael Mooney, his mother Hazel Jane Mooney, his sister-in-law Marilyn Caprioglio, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Kathryn and David Abdalian.
