This page is dedicated to the loving memory of Dr. John Ling Mark. He was a great husband, father, son, brother, doctor, and friend to all those who were lucky enough to have known him in life.
He was a big kid at heart and those who knew him well, will never forget all his favorite things... Ultraman, Fishing, Cooking, Comic Books, Japanese Anime, 50s/60s music, Transformers, Growing tomatoes, and last but not least... GODZILLA. But most of all, his ultimate purpose in life was being there for his family.
John made friends easily at every school he attended, including Hudson Guild Nursery School, P.S. 11, I.S. 70, Brooklyn Tech High School, Cornell University, and SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
John served his residency at NYU Downtown Hospital and then began proudly serving the Chinatown community as a thoughtful and caring doctor with his own practice.
He fought hard to be there for his children and his family as long as he could, but in the end, he lost the fight to cancer. He leaves behind his wife Joyce and their two children Sophia and Ryan.
To honor his memory, you may make a donation here to continue the fight against cancer.
