FAIRFAX — Mark Arthur Minor, 67 of Fairfax, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at the VA Medical Center, West Roxbury, Mass.

Mark was born Oct. 4, 1948, the son of the late Carlton Arthur and Theresa (Fortune) Minor of Fairfax. Following his graduation from BFA Fairfax with the class of 1967, Mark proudly served his country with the US Army during the Vietnam War. Mark went on to become a self-employed contractor and master carpenter. An avid outdoorsman, Mark loved to hunt, fish and work in his garden. He will be remembered for his many stories from “secret” trout ponds, adventures of ice fishing and hunts for the elusive whitetail deer. A man who took great pleasure in sharing with others. He will be dearly missed by those who knew him.

Mark is survived by his two children, Shad Minor and his wife, Melissa, and Kristy Pigeon and her husband, Joey; his grandchildren, Jordan, Loudon, Rachel and Chase and his great granddaughter, Briley.  He will be missed by his girlfriend, Judy Hevrin; siblings, David, Michael (Ellen), Marty (Andrea White), Marlene (David Bevins), Marvin (Lisa), Tina Ladd, Robin (Brenda), Torrey Underwood and Marlon.
