Mark MacLellan Brown Jr., 52, a loving husband and father, passed away unexpectedly on September 6, 2022, at his home in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
Mark was born March 16, 1970, in Potsdam, NY, to Mark and Nancy Brown. After graduating from Canton Central School in 1989, he went on to study at Utica College of Syracuse University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Technology and Economic Crime Investigation with a minor in Computer Science in 1992.

Mark was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and camping. He was a member of the NRA. He loved spending time working on cars, starting with his first Camaro when he was a teenager to his son Ian’s car most recently.
