Obituary

 

Mark Angelo Valenzano age 57 of Ocean Township died on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. Born in Neptune, he had lived in West Long Branch before moving to Ocean Township. Mark, with his parents, owned the Valenzano’s Office Supply for many years before working at Best Buy. He is an expert at installing beer systems with JDS Mechanical. Mark was an Ordained Minister, loved the NY GIANTS, music and the beach.

Every day was an adventure with him. He touched many lives with his warmth and wonderful personality. He always put a smile on our faces with his great sense of humor. Those who love him may feel that we did not have nearly enough time with him, but we know he packed a lot of living into his life. He loved his family and his many friends and never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. He loved to dine out, sightsee and travel; always making new friends along the way. He was up for any adventure and leaves many wonderful memories for his loved ones to cherish. He knew how to live life to the fullest.

His light will continue to shine in the many lives he has changed through his organ donation. What an amazing soul! He has definitely made his own indelible MARK on this world, as a man who does what's right, without hesitation.

Mark was predeceased by his parents, Angelo and Immaculate Ann Valenzano. Surviving are his sisters, Linda Valenzano and Laura Valenzano; his fiancée, Kristin Kerr; his uncle and aunt Rudy and Barbara Menditto and many cousins.
