Mark was born September 1, 1963 at Waterbury Hospital to Carol (Savage) Williams and the late Edward Askew.

Mark received his education through the Waterbury School System and graduated from Wilby High School.

He also enjoyed taking walks on the beach at Savin Rock in West Haven, CT, and working on cars. Mark mostly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, family, friends, and his dogs Marco and Isis. A generous and kind person, Mark would do anything within his power for his friends and family.
