Mark Anthony Palestino
May 24, 1958 – September 9, 2021
Age 63. He was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Keeley, and father, Dominick Palestino. He is survived by daughters, Emily Palestino and Cassidy Stuart; partner, Denyce Diener; and siblings: Jeff Palestino, Lori Otte, Mike Palestino (Paula), and Cindy Ferraguti, as well as nieces, nephews, and one granddaughter.
Mark served his country in the United States Marine Corps and was able to use his passion for dogs to help support our troops and country. He enjoyed spending his free time in nature, fishing and hunting, and in traveling the world with Denyce. He loved sitting on the beach freely after snorkeling and exploring the oceans.
Mark knew everything (or at least made it seem like he did!) and was always there to help someone solve a problem. He taught everyone valuable lessons from how to drive, how to save money, and how to take care of every plant and flower you could think of. He will be leaving behind a huge hole in our lives.
Words can’t express the sadness and loss we experience with his passing. Mark is now peacefully resting until we meet again.
VISITATION: Monday, September 13th from 9:30am to 10:30am at the West Center Chapel, followed by FUNERAL SERVICE at 10:30am. Interment: Calvary Cemetery with Military Honors by Benson VFW Post 2503.
