Born March 16, 1963, in Marion, he was the son of Charles R. and Janet J. (Woodland) Wright. They preceded him in death. He married Dana Jacoby Moler on Jan. 17, 1987, in Carey and she preceded him in death on Feb. 8, 1999. He later married Tina M.

(Betsy) Wright of London, OH; Susan P. Hotelling of Carey, and Laura A. (Dan) Hausman of Columbus.
Mark was a 1982 graduate of Carey High School, where he was class president and was still a true Blue Devil fan, as well as the OSU Buckeyes. Mark loved to ride his Harley Davidson, tinker in his garage, and indulge in sci-fi movies, such as Star Trek and Star Wars.
He worked for 23 years at Cooper Tire as a licensed lube technician. He was also a 15-year member of the Fire Brigade and was a lieutenant on the Emergency Response Team for three years, both at Cooper Tire. Mark enjoyed making people laugh and was known as the factory comedian.
