Mark Lawrence Sacco
1963 – 2021
Mark Lawrence Sacco passed away surrounded by his loving wife and daughters after a long, valiant battle with Multiple Sclerosis. He was born in Ogden, UT, on December 18th, 1963, to Hugh and Sheran Sacco of Uintah, UT. He attended Bonneville High School, Class of 82′, where he excelled in trouble making and shenanigans with his buddies, but most of all it is where he met the love of his life of 38 years, Tammy Robinson. They were married on March 12, 1983. Together they have two daughters, Felicia and Cassandra, who were his pride and joy. They were later sealed as a family on October 23, 1990, in the Ogden Temple. He has been an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and found great joy in serving, especially his last few years where he dedicated most of his time giving service to his neighbors, friends, and family.
Dry humor and loud voice, once you met Mark you became a friend. Dad loved the outdoors and hunting, he was an adrenaline junky, master chef, travel expert, and a fan of TV talent shows. His favorite hobby was spending time with his 13 grandchildren. They truly brightened each day and filled his life with love and laughter. He began working at a very young age at Sacco’s Produce and after many years at Smith’s Food and Drug, he followed his passion for cooking and shared his love of food with everyone he met.
He is survived by his wife Tammy, his two daughters Felicia (Terry) Rhodes of West Valley and Cassandra (Chad) Hill of Eden, 13 Grandchildren; Siblings, Hugh (Wendy) Sacco of Hooper, Connie Lewis of Uintah, and Chris (Monica) Sacco of Morgan. He is preceded in death by his Father and Mother, Hugh and Sheran Sacco, his Father-in-Law Gerald Robinson and all his Grandparents.
