Obituary for Mark Edwin Thurston

On September 17, 2020, Mark E Thurston of Umatilla, Florida lost his brief battle with cancer. Born in 1955 to Bill and Ginny Thurston, he grew up in Harvard, Massachusetts. He attended the Harvard public schools and graduated from Bromfield High School. He spent the majority of his adult life and family time in Virginia where he gained a wonderful son-in-law, grandchildren, as well as adopting and raising a son and two daughters.
Mark always had a special place in his heart for animals, and every dog he ‘rescued’ knew it right away. His compassion and sensitivity for people and situations contributed to his success as a finance manager for a car dealership. When he retired from that position, he made his way south to Florida where he lived in Sun Lake Estates. There he met his life partner Debbie. With much love and creative talent he spent his last seven years creating artscapes, adopting rescue dogs, and spending time with his soul mate, Debbie.
Mark leaves his father (Bill), two sisters and a brother as well as the aforementioned special people; he is pre-deceased by his mom (Ginny) and step mother (Pat). Due to the Covid complexities of 2020, he will be cremated and there will be no public memorial or service.
