Formerly of New Brighton

Born May 24, 1962, in Ft. Carson, Colo., a son of Carol Zinsser, of New Brighton and the late Charles Davidson. His family traveled throughout the country to support his father's military career before settling in New Brighton, which Mark always considered home. He attended Quigley Catholic High School and New Brighton before joining the U.S. Navy. He spent the last 23 years working for Wrisco Industries.
He was preceded in death by his father, Charles Davidson and his stepfather, Edmund Tabay.

His family will remember Mark for his generosity as well as for planning many trips to Disney World and the way he cared for his beloved pets. Mark was a consummate Pittsburgher who bled Black and Gold. Nothing brought him more joy than visiting the Strip District and preparing a massive tailgate before a Steelers game, except maybe taking his siblings to see Jerome Bettis inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
