Mark A. Ferland, 58 of Claremont, NH, died Thursday (Jan. 3, 2019) following a period of failing health. He was born in Claremont, NH, on November 26, 1960, the son of Roger E. and Margaret “Peg” (Murphy) Ferland and had lived in Claremont all his life. Mark had been employed at Leo’s Market in Claremont doing various jobs, but the one he was famous for was peeling potatoes in the deli. He was a very good natured guy who always had a “hello” for anyone who greeted him as well as his smile that could light up a room. Mark had an indelible sense of humor and if you took the time to listen to him, he would put a smile on your face as well. He was a NY Yankee fan and if you wore anything associated with any other team, he would be the first to kid you about it. Mark also enjoyed swimming, bowling, playing basketball and singing as well as being a huge WWE fan.
He was predeceased by his parents.
Members of his family include seven sisters, Diana Rouleau, Auburn, NH; Pauline Simino, Claremont, NH; Catherine Grasta, Webster, NY; “Maggie” Saracino, Claremont, NH; Deborah Richardson, Charlestown, NH; Mary Bigwood, Chester, VT; Martha Lewellyn, Claremont, NH; two brothers, Peter Ferland and Charles Ferland, both of Claremont, NH as well as many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews as well as numerous friends he had made throughout his life.
There will be no visiting hours.
A Celebration of Mark’s Life will be held at the Claremont Senior Center, 5 Acer Heights, Claremont, NH on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 1-3 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the local Chapter of the Special Olympics, The Claremont Cool Cats, C/O Beth Lemieux, 519 Jarvis Hill Road, Claremont, NH 03743.
