Mark grew up in Lincoln Park, New Jersey. His parents are Jack and Lillian (Aug) Vaillancourt. Mark met his wife Carol (Hines) in the 70's at the Day Country Store. They married June 4th 1983 and have lived in Day ever since.
Mark was a gifted master mechanic and started his career with Dan Barclay Trucking and Corbett Rigging before moving north to work for Wilton Service Center. Mark was currently working for DeJana formerly known as Arrowhead Equipment.
Mark and Carol were inseparable and spent their lives participating and visiting craft fairs, rides around the Finger Lakes and stopping at various wineries. Mark was fascinated by his Native American ancestry and spent time learning all that he could.
Mark understood the value of family and was a devoted son. You could always count on him to be there when you needed him. He and Carol spent many hours caring for his parents, enjoying holidays, and watching the Yankees. Mark could tell stories and talk to you like he knew you forever, even if you just met. Once you met Mark you knew how good natured and sincere he was.
