Mark (Marky) J. Sampson left our world on Jan. 26, 2010, for a better place.

He was born on Feb. 17, 1992, to proud parents Mark and Karen Sampson.   

Mark was loved by all those who met him. One of his greatest gifts was the ability to make everyone laugh and smile. He would often joke about himself just to cheer others up when they were down. 

Mark was a member of this year's senior class at Titusville High School, with plans to attend West Chester University upon graduation. 

Mark was a member of the Titusville wrestling team for many years. 

He worked for his father's business during the summers. Mark enjoyed camping, bike riding and swimming at 30 foot with his many longtime friends. Movie nights, ping pong and waffle parties will be memories for many. He went to the Outer Banks of North Carolina every summer with his family since the age of 3. Mark was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Titusville.

Mark will be deeply missed and always loved by his parents; sisters, Lauren Sampson and Cara Schweizer and her husband, Chris; brothers, Tyler Sampson and wife, Laura, Matt Sampson and wife, Sarah; his grandparents, Richard and Yvonne Pearson, of Centerville, and Ronald and Anna Sampson, of Pleasantville; numerous aunts and uncles; three nieces and three nephews, for one of which Mark was the godfather; as well as many cousins.

The family asks that contributions be made in Mark's memory to the Titusville Alumni Association, 302 E. Walnut St., Titusville, Pa., 16354, for a scholarship that will be set up in Mark's name for a fun-loving, well-liked Titusville senior without regard to financial need, GPA or achievements. Please always keep Mark in your thoughts and prayers. 

Friends may call at the Gordon B. Garrett Funeral Home on Friday, from 7 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be conducted from First Presbyterian Church on Sunday at 3 p.m. with Dr. Barry E. Cressman officiating.

Interment will be in Woodlawn Cemetery.
