Mark A. “Turk” Turcotte, Jr., 34, of Scranton, died unexpectedly on Monday October 26th at Geisinger CMC after a brief illness.
Born in Scranton, son of Mark and Evie Turcotte, Sr., Carbondale, he was a graduate of West Scranton High School. He was employed as a cook for Poor Richards Pub, Scranton, and Famularo Catering, Mount Pocono.
Turk loved his grandma, his best furry friend Gia, playing video games, playing guitar, Dragon Ball Z, and hanging with his buddies at a good fire. He will be missed by many. Turk was the type of guy to walk into a room of strangers and come out with 10 new friends. In life, he would do anything for anyone, even if all you needed was a good laugh. Even in death, he is still giving to others by being an organ donor.
In a final message to his friends, “Dave’s Not Here, Man”.
Also surviving are his sister: Aimee Kristyniak and wife Corrine; and his fiancée: Lisa Venturi.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by the Brennan & Brennan Funeral Home, Inc., 55 Lincoln Ave., Carbondale.
