Mark Ferraro, 81, died on Friday, August 30, in Lebanon. Mark was born in Trinidad, Colorado to Francesco and Rosalia (Messina). In 1942 he moved with his family to Los Angeles, California. He served in the Navy from 1956 to 1960, in between the Korean and Vietnam Wars. In 1967, he moved to Oregon where he graduated from Chemeketa Community College with a degree in Fire Science. He met his loving wife Bernadette Sticka and they were married in January of 1972 in Sherwood.

Mark served his community as a firefighter for Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue, residing in Woodburn. In 2000 he and his wife Berni moved to Lebanon. After moving to Lebanon he and Berni became very involved in St. Edwards Catholic Church and St. Vincent de Paul. Mark loved old movies, gardening, and Football; his favorite teams were Notre Dame and the Rams. However, Mark's great loves were his wife Berni, his Church, and his dogs.

Mark is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Rose; his brothers Dominic Ferraro, John Ferraro, and Mike Ferraro; and his sisters Mary (George) Sciacca, Jean (Robert) Miles, Geraldine (Lee) Sorter, Cecilia (Fred) Porter, and Susie (Jack) Capehart.

Mark is survived by his wife Bernadette, his sister Frances and her husband Joe Longobardi, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mark was a loving husband, an attentive brother, a wise uncle, and a good friend. We will miss him.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Susan, Jeff, and Adam Drago, Frank Sticka, and Meadowlark Assisted Living.
