Mark was born July 13th, 1961, in Watertown, the son of Gerald and Cecelia Stokes Norfolk. He graduated from Thousand Islands High School in 1979.
He enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Amongst his deployments, he served as a Boiler Technician on the USS El Paso LKA 117. Mark was honorably discharged in 1993 after 10 years of service. He then was an over the road truck driver for Shoreline trucking, Dart Trucking, and LEAN MTN Trucking Company which was his own. He then worked for a tree service/landscaping company, all in Virginia. In the more recent years, he enjoyed collecting and selling scrap metal.
