Mark B Von Haugg

Mark Benedict Von Haugg died peacefully at his home in Knox on May 9, 2015 at the age of 74. Mark was born on February 19, 1941 in Albany, NY to Lothar and Bertha Von Haugg. He grew up on Cole Hill on a farm with his parents and four siblings, Isolde, Diana, Tristan and Richard. He graduated from Berne-Knox-Westerlo Central School in 1960 and married Patricia Komjathy that same year. He then joined the Air Force in 1960 as an Aircraft Technician where he was stationed on Long Island. In 1964, after Mark was honorably discharged, he and his family eventually settled in the town of Knox where they have remained since. Mark enjoyed many outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking and gardening. The family owned several horses over the years. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family during celebrations. Mark is survived by his wife Patricia, and his four children, Mark (Lynette) of Shelburne Falls, MA, Morgan (Linda) of Pikeville, NC, Matthew (Susan) of Knox, NY and Amanda of Herkimer, NY. He is also survived by his nine grandchildren Jason, Morgan, Sarah, Matthew, Joshua, Stephen, Samantha, Marleana and Tarah.

My sincere condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that God views death as an enemy. Soon He will conquer that enemy. No more death, mourning , outcry or pain. This He promises. 1Corinthians 15:26 and Revelation 21:3,4

Very saddened to hear of Mark's passing. He serviced payphones for me in Albany. When I came from Texas to install them, he invited me to his home and made me a steak dinner. I had a lovely evening with him and his wife.

Gentle giant who loved his dear Pat and children. Mark's legacy will live on through Mark, Morgan, Matt, Amanda and his grandchildren. As the wind blows through the trees on his land you will hear his laughter and realize all is well. God will comfort you all and embrace you with strength and love.
