Later, he worked for his brother Charlie at Atwood Autobody and eventually became the owner until his retirement about 15 years ago. After retirement, he stayed in the business as an automobile appraiser, a job he kept until his illness a few months ago. Mark was very active in the community. He was a member of the Peabody BPOE Elks and played in various golf leagues on the North Shore. He enjoyed volunteering to cook dinners for various charities and seniors.
