Obituary for Mark A. Worosz

Mark A. Worosz of Warren died February 15, 2018. He was 68 years old. Mark was born October 15, 1949 in Detroit to Rosemary (nee Zezula) and Marion Worosz.

Mark graduated from Salesian High School in Detroit in 1968. In November of the same year he enlisted in the United States Navy in a combat construction capacity with the Navy Seabees. He was stationed at Port Hueneme, CA and served two nine-month tours of duty on riverboat patrol in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. He was stationed at Antarctica (McMurdo Brockton Station from 1971-1972). He rose to the rank of Petty Officer 2nd Class before being honorably discharged in 1972. Rather than be drafted, he volunteered to serve with the Navy to serve his country and learn a trade. He was so proud of his service and of being a veteran.

After his military service he started working at Michigan Bell/AT&T where he would later retire after 45 years. On April 26, 1985 he married Nancy Vojinov. The two were married for over 32 years and raised an incredible family together.

Mark was a handyman who could fix anything. He loved helping all of his kids with any projects they had at their houses. He loved teaching them how to use tools and how to fix/build stuff. He even volunteered to go to Mexico with his daughter, Liz, to build homes for Homes for Hope.

He loved spending time at the family cottage, fixing it up and relaxing. It was a special place for him and Nancy to go together. Mark loved animals - all animals and they loved him right back. He had bird feeders and squirrel feeders that he would fill every day and sit and watch. He also loved to read and do word searches.

Most of all, Mark loved his family. He enjoyed just being together, no matter what they were doing. Family really was his "hobby". His greatest joy came from being with his family, especially his two grandbabies, Mark and Everett.

Mark was often described as “a big man with a big heart”. He touched the lives of many people. He will be dearly missed by all those lucky enough to have known him. May he Rest In Peace.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife, Nancy Worosz and children, Roxanne Worosz, Mark (Valerie) Worosz and Liz (Nate) Tapling. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Mark Stephen and Everett, brothers, Mike (Terry) Worosz and Matt Worosz and many nieces and nephews. Mark is preceded in death by his sister, Marquerite (Art) Neumann.
