  • Sorry to hear about your loss and Mark’s passing from his earthy presence. I worked with Mark at Haskell Labs back when I joined the company. I found him to be a dedicated and intelligent supporter and executor of Safety Health and Environmental. Together with Norm Henry, Joe V and Mark we had a great work collaborative team atmosphere in a time when those ” words and actions” were not common.
    Mark added to my good early memories of my time with DuPont ( I have now completed my 35th year)
