Yvonne Huard Gemme. Mark was proud of his French-Canadian,

community. He served in the Knights of Columbus, and worked for nearly
thirty years at Bath Iron Works. He loved the outdoors and shared great
times with loved ones boating, hunting, fishing, and enjoying nature. Mark

entertaining and played music and sang with friends.

for others. May his memory be eternal!
