Honoring a Facilities Leader

University flags were recently lowered in honor of Mark Englerth, Facilities Manager for River Campus Operations, who died on December 23. Mark joined the University staff in 2000. In his role with University Facilities and Services, Mark served as an active member of the Waste Minimization Steering Committee, was closely involved in waste management activities on campus, and had a focus on health and safety matters. He was a caring and diligent individual who will be missed by many.

Some interesting information about Mark from his obituary:

In his teens, Mark served in the US Coast Guard stationed at Kodiak, Alaska. He was educated in Washington state, ultimately finishing his bachelor’s degree at SUNY Brockport.  Mark worked at the University of Rochester for 21 years. Later on volunteering with the USCG Auxiliary.

He enjoyed traveling, archery, horseback riding, playing the drums and was an avid collector.  Mark also enjoyed caring for his ferret, Adam.

Mark will be remembered and greatly missed by those of us who worked with him in Facilities. Rest in peace, friend.
