The Mark J. Wertman Memorial Fund

Seldom in life does one have the fortune to come across an individual whose mere presence invokes a smile not only on our faces but in our souls. We were the lucky ones. Mark brought pride to his family and joy and laughter to all. As we take this time to honor his life and give thanks for having been a part of it, please consider making a donation to his memorial fund to help his family cement his beautiful legacy in the fashion that he has ingrained love in our hearts.


For those that wish to attend the services for Mark, there will be a viewing held at 4:00pm onward on Friday, December 8th, 2017 at O’Leary’s Funeral Home in Springfield (604 Springfield Rd). There will also be a small viewing period before a memorial mass on Saturday, December 9th, 2017 from 9:30am to 10:30am at Holy Cross church (651 E Springfield Rd) which is located directly across the street from O’Leary’s in Springfield. Burial services will be held at Holy Cross Cemetary in Yeadon (626 Baily Rd) immediately following the memorial mass.
