Obituary of Mark Hesleitner

Please share a memory of Mark to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

On October 18th, 2022 Mark Hesleitner passed away suddenly at home at the age of 61.  His love for life and fight for life were truly amazing!  He received a double-lung transplant from NY Presbyterian in January of this year, and his passing was unexpected.

Throughout his childhood, he was active in the Boy Scouts of America and attained the highest rank of Eagle Scout.   He was a lover of animals and a staunch supporter of the Humane Society, where he adopted his miniature poodle, Lucky.  He was an avid gardener, and a star bowler, throwing two 300 games.  He loved golf and fishing and had a fish aquarium for many years.  He was very close to his family and church, St. Peter’s Lutheran.  He loved music and singing in the school musicals and church choir.

He worked 29 years as an Alarm Technician at PN Alarms in Monticello, NY and is a graduate of BOCES Electrical Trade Program and Port Jervis High School.

He is survived by his loving wife Susan, his brother Paul Hesleitner, his sister-in-law Annette Hesleitner, his nephew John Hesleitner of Massapequa Park, NY and his sister, Marlene VanHouten, and brother-in-law Ron VanHouten of Port Jervis, NY.  

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in memory of Mark Hesleitner to either St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at 31 W. Main St., Port Jervis, NY  12771; or the Lung Transplant Fund at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia, the NYP Development Office, 850 3rd Ave, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10022.  Donations can also be made by credit card online at
