Age 53, of Pittsburgh, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 27, 2023, of an apparent sudden cardiac arrest. Loving father of Maggie and Katie Butcher; beloved son of Edward A. Butcher (Barbara) and the late Margaret "Peggy" Stewart; brother of Michael Butcher; nephew of Cynthia Planinsek; and uncle of Molly Morgan. Mark is also survived by the mother of his children, Marie Morgan; brother-in-law, Michael Morgan; and many cousins and other loving family members and friends.
Mark was a proud father of his girls, and they were the loves of his life. He was known affectionately as “The Mayor” as he always knew someone wherever he went and always stopped to shake their hand and see how they were doing. Mark enjoyed hosting cookouts, playing cornhole, gardening, and tending to his sunflowers. He recently took up making birdhouses. Mark was an avid sports fan, especially hockey, and rooted for the Penguins and Steelers.
Mark was a long-time employee of Atlas Wholesale Supply in Carnegie, and was formally trained in the field of heating, ventilation and air conditioning. He was also skilled at doing various home repairs and projects.
