Mark G. Carrier, 58, of Southington, passed away after a short battle with cancer on Sunday, October 4, 2020 at Hartford Hospital. He had been the husband of Sarah (Woods) Carrier for nearly 35 years.
Mark was born on August 26, 1962 in Bristol. He proudly served his country with the US Army as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. Mark worked at Pratt and Whitney for over 35 years where he met some of his best friends. An adventurous soul who loved to travel, Mark was also an avid concert goer whose love for music was unwavering. His favorite things included his daily Dunkin’ Donuts run, watching The Price is Right and Jeopardy, bowling, and playing the lottery. But above all, Mark most enjoyed playing card games with his family. He will be remembered for his humorous outgoing personality and for the love that he had for his family.
In addition to his wife, Sarah, Mark is survived by his two children; a son, Kyle Carrier and his wife Jamie of Bristol, and a daughter, Brittney Carrier of Flagstaff, AZ; three grandsons, Logan, Cooper and Theo; his mother, Regina (Seitz) Walicki and her husband, Jerry, of Southington and his stepmother, Dayl Carrier, of Bristol.
