Mark McLaughlin was born in Buffalo, New York, and raised in Williamsville as one of ten children. After serving in the Navy, Mark graduated from Buffalo State College with a Bachelor’s in Engineering Services degree with an electrical engineering focus. Tinkering with engines and fixing things was a hobby of his.
He met his wife Gloria working at Emedco when her mother passed; he came to keep her company and never left. The two had been together since 1989 and lived in West Seneca for about 31 years. When Mark was 39, the two had their only child Stephen who he was close with while growing up. When Stephen was little Mark was a stay-at-home parent and passed on his many passions such as ice skating.
Ice hockey was a favorite pastime of Marks and he enjoyed playing in a local pickup league. He also really loved playing golf, especially with his friends at Elma Meadows. In his free time, he enjoyed going out with Gloria to have a few drinks with dinner and play darts.
Mark will be missed for his great sense of humor and his wide range of talents.
