Mark Allen Boston - age 51, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, June 3, 2021. The son of Carol and Calvin Boston, Mark was born on June 25, 1969 in San Antonio, Texas. Mark, despite having adverse challenges with developmental disabilities, was a bright light.
Mark was the pride and joy of his parents and siblings. The activities he enjoyed included going to his parent’s camp where he loved swimming, boat rides and spending time with family; taking strolls in his wheelchair; helping others; visiting with animals, going to the movies; Barnes and Nobles; and eating cake.
Mark spent a majority of his adult life under the care of Goodwill Industries at Mary Lane where he developed lifelong friendships. He enjoyed working at Life Works, going for rides “with the boys”, and eating at Ken’s Restaurant. Mark had an outgoing personality with a smile on his face and always enjoyed the simple pleasures in life.
Mark is survived by his loving parents, Carol and Calvin Boston of Bluffton, South Carolina, his twin brother, Chris Boston and his wife, Joanie, and their children, Morgan and Nathan of Gilbert, Arizona; and his brother Jeffrey Boston and his wife, Karen, and their children, Katherine, Andrew, and Matthew of Augusta, Maine.
