Mark Nezich Obituary

Mark P. Nezich, 90, of Market St. passed from this earth to his heavenly home on Sunday, February 4, 2024 at Ten Broeck Commons.  Born August 17, 1933, in Verplank, and raised in Cementon, he was the son of the late Marko and Pauline Cotich Nezich.   A veteran of the United States Navy he served during the Korean War from 1951 to 1954 in the Cryptology unit stationed in the Aleutian Islands, off Alaska.

Mark was employed for 34 years at IBM, in Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn and Lexington KY, with his last position as the manager of safety and health.   He also held the position of Saugerties Village Justice.   He was a member of the IBM Quarter Century Club, the Cementon Sportsman Club, the Saugerties Bowlers Club, the American Legion Post #72 and the Saugerties Elks.

Survivors include his wife, of 66 years, the former Virginia “Ginny” Pysher whom he knew from kindergarten.  Together they raised their 3 children in Saugerties, two daughters, Lynn and her husband Anthony Salvatore, Kim and her husband Peter Tiano.  One son, Mark and his wife Debora Nezich.  Six grandchildren, Anthony “TJ” and Alicia Salvatore, Michael and his wife Mallory Tiano, Hannah, Jordan and Ethan Nezich, two great grandchildren – one of which is on the way, and several nieces and nephews – all of whom he loved dearly and was so very proud of them all.   He was predeceased by a brother, Patrick Nezich and a sister, Anna Berreski and their spouses Sandy and Walter. 

Mark loved fast cars enjoying both a Corvette and TR-6 and his Harley.  For enjoyment, besides time with his family, he loved betting the horses – it was an inside joke that when he left his office at IBM, we went to a second job at OTB - and going to Saratoga, playing poker and trying his luck at the casino.    He will be missed by those that knew him.

The family would like to thank the staff at Ten Broeck Commons for taking such good care of Mark. 

His funeral service will be held 10:00 AM Tuesday at the Seamon-Wilsey Funeral Home, Inc. Cor. of John & Lafayette Sts., Saugerties.   Burial with military honors will follow in the Town of Catskill Cemetery.   Friends will be received Monday from 4 PM- 7 PM.   Expressions of condolence may be shared with the family on Mark’s Tribute Wall at SeamonWilseyFuneralHome.com
