Mark J. Santos

1952 ∼ 2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mark (Sparky) J. Santos of Barnstable. He died on Saturday, February 17 at the young age of 65 after suffering a severe head injury while under care at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth for unrelated reasons.

Mark grew up in Barnstable Village and graduated from Barnstable High School. He was also a graduate of Cape Cod Community College and went on to attain a BS in Finance and Investments from Babson College.

Mark held a number of jobs in the finance field including writing for Babson Reports, and most recently as a self-employed provider of financial services.

He leaves behind his son Cameron Santos of Barnstable who is a senior at Babson College, and also leaves behind his beloved Husky and best friend, Juneau. 

He is predeceased by his parents, Edmund and Rosemary Santos of Barnstable Village.

He will be greatly missed by his 5 brothers, Gregory, Edmund Jr., Jackson, Kenneth and Steven; and by his two Sisters Mary and Marsha and his many adoring nieces and nephews.

Mark’s greatest pleasure in life was derived from photography and interacting with animals in nature – perhaps second only to his passion for keeping up with the latest news about the economy and market trends.

A burial service will be held at Mosswood Cemetery at 1PM on Saturday, March 3rd.
