Mark W. O’Shea, 41

BOSTON, MASS. — Mark William O’Shea, 41, of Boston, transcended Sunday, June 30, 2013.

He was born to William and Harmony O’Shea, Feb. 6, 1972, in Englewood, N.J. Mark graduated from Lake Region High School in 1990, and served in the United States Army as a 19k Tanker of the M1A1 Abrams “Whispering Death.” As part of the 2nd Armored Heavy Mechanized Division, he served two years in Germany and was a veteran of the 1991 Gulf War “Desert Storm.”

To follow, Mark received a Liberal Arts degree from the University of El Paso and a Computer Science degree from the University of Massachusetts. He was currently working on a Multimedia and Graphic Design degree at Cape Cod Community College, but Mark was not just an academic intellect, he was also a renaissance man. Like our father before him, our brother was an exceptional carpenter, a natural leader, and possessed a boundless creative mind. He enjoyed reading fantasy novels, had a real passion for heavy metal, and was an excellent rhythm guitarist. Most of all Mark was a member of the family and a man of honor who believed in life, living it, and the spread of joy.

Mark is survived by his parents: William and Harmony O’Shea; his sister Karen; and six brothers: Christopher, William, Keith (twin), Brian, Steven, and Rusty. He also is survived by 13 nieces and nephews.

 You brought the light into any room you walked into

and life into everyone you touched.

We remember you — Mark William O’Shea:

happy, humble, selfless, hopeful.

 A viewing was held at the Hall Funeral Home in Casco, Maine, Saturday, July 6, 2013, and was followed by a graveside service, including a Veteran’s Honor Guard, at Crooked River Cemetery in Naples.

The family appreciates your prayers and well wishes for Mark.
