Mark D’Angelo Sr. was born on November 16, 1965 in Waterbury Connecticut where he later graduated from Crosby High School in 1982. Shortly after graduation, Mark enlisted in the Connecticut Army National Guard as an infantryman. While enlisted, Mark married Janet Del Selva, the mother of his four children. Mark attended the Connecticut School of Electronics from 1986-1988, earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering. In 1989, Mark and Janet took a chance and made their journey to the Cape in hopes for a fresh start with the promise of a better life for their children. Mark initially found employment for a small tech company in Falmouth MA. After working diligently and developing his skills, he later was employed with Onset Computer Corporation in Bourne, MA as a Software/Mechanical Engineer for more 15 years.
Mark was always a charitable person, donating his time to food pantries on a regular basis. Not only that, his home was always open to anyone in need and also considered the beacon of the finest dining establishment in Winslow Farms. There was no meal or recipe too difficult for “Pops” to master or improve.
Mark was an ambitious man; when an obstacle presented itself, he would find a way to overcome. Mark was often considered to be wise beyond his years and the intellectual of the family. Mark was known for his “no-quit” attitude and the prime example for the “hard work+ preparation = success” story. Although he often displayed a hard and tough exterior, Mark was known for the way he loved, especially his family. Mark wasn’t just a father, he was a guiding principle and a role-model for others. He was a comedian, chef, accountant, mechanic, engineer, plumber, electrician, baker and gaming partner. Mark’s roles were limitless, but most importantly he remained the best father one could aspire to be. Mark is forever embedded in our hearts leaving his legacy of love and compassion.
Your legacy shall remain forever engraved in us Mark. Soar high Father, Friend, and Leader. Your journey here has come to an end, but the next chapter has begun and we shall carry the torch from here. As you embark on your next journey, may you rest your weary heart my kindred friend. Save us a place at God’s heavenly table. Till we meet again…
We love you with all our hearts, See you on the other side <3
