Mark A Tarr, 65, of Albany NY, passed away on June 3rd 2021 at home.
Born in Syracuse NY he is the son of the late Charles and Patricia Tarr, whom he adored.
Mark attended Linton High School, received a Bachelors degree at Buffalo State and his Masters in Social Work at SUNY Albany. Mark was a Legislative Analyst for the NYS Senate for 20 years as well as a Legislative Coordinator for State Watch, before retiring and going on to work as a Resident Counselor for The Center for Disabilities where he brought his kind and tender personality to the very special "folks" he lovingly took care of.
Mark enjoyed sunsets on the pier in Naples Florida, was an avid reader and lover of all music especially The Beatles. He also enjoyed playing his guitar for many years. His knowledge and intelligence allowed him to rarely miss an answer on Jeopardy. His love of coffee and ice cream made him a frequent patron of Stewart's and Dairy Queen where his dynamic personality allowed him to make many personal connections.
Given Mark's joyful and contagious laugh, one couldn't help but feel uplifted after spending time with him. Mark will be sorely missed by all his family and friends.
Mark was a kind, loving and supportive brother to his surviving siblings, Andrea (Val) Robert, Terri (Ken) Schaefer, Patti (Tim) Wilson, Meg (Jamie) Rowe as well as a host of beloved nieces, nephews and friends.
