Mark Ernest Hearn, of Cape Coral, Florida, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 15, 2020. He was 66 years old. Mark was born on April 21, 1954, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to the late Edward Lee and Elizabeth Ann (Generose) Hearn.
Mark had many careers throughout his lifetime, but most recently was happily retired and a proud stay at home Dad.
Mark cherished spending time with his family, the wind in his hair at the beach and his knees in the breeze on his motorcycle with friends. Mark was passionate about politics and was always up for a great but civil debate. Mark was an avid storyteller and could capture any ear in any room he walked into. Mark was an amateur beekeeper. Not really by choice. You see, the bees liked him a lot more than he liked them. Mark loved to have fun and his rule was that every day you just had to have a little fun. And he sure knew how to have a little fun. Mark loved a good meal and especially loved a good hot dog and a bloody mary that was more meal than drink. And ice cream. On the coldest day of the year. And no one could savor a meal slower than Mark. Mark was handy and could fix or build just about anything. Sometimes even people. Mark was a Boat Captain and one of his favorite things was his hot dog boat business on Fort Myers Beach. Mark loved life and lived a good one.
