Mark A. Szabo

Mark A. Szabo of Bridgeport passed away October 23, 2021 in his home at the age of 62. Mark was born on June 17, 1959 to Alexander and Joan Szabo (nee Swanson) in Bridgeport, CT, where he lived most of his life.

A loving father, brother, and friend, Mark was also an avid golfer, bowler, bocce player, and a life-long fan of both the San Francisco 49ers and New York Yankees. In addition to his passion for sports, Mark enjoyed cooking and could often be found by the grill for a family gathering. Everything he did, he did with an unforgettable sense of humor. Those who knew him know he was quick-witted, funny, and always ready to tell a good joke or sing out of key. He will be remembered for his jovial spirit, his laugh, and his all-around good nature.

Mark was preceded in death by his father Alexander, his mother Joan, and his brother Neil. He is survived by his wife Donnamarie, his daughter Katherine, his sister Christina, his brother Glenn, his niece, Sarah Szabo, and his three nephews, Spencer, Ethan, and Steven Szabo.

Friends are invited to greet his family on Saturday, October 30th from 9:30 to 11 AM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center, followed by a graveside committal service in Mountain Grove Cemetery to commemorate Mark’s life.
