Mark F. Evans, passed in peace on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at the age of 55. Mark passed peacefully at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Hanover N.H. following a brief illness.

Mark’s story starts in Rota, Spain, June 17, 1964. Where if you heard Mark, he would reference himself as a military brat. Soon, he came home to the United States with his parents. Mark received his education in Manchester, Vermont where he attended Burr & Burton.

Mark received his training as a renowned installer though Vermont Carpet, a family owned business based in Manchester Center VT. He later branched off and started Evans Flooring; owner and contractor. He worked throughout the United States, Vermont, Wisconsin, Illinois and Arizona.

His second protection/police dogs and working with various police departments and private agencies. He started with his beloved Bud and soon opened Alpha Dog Academy in Illinois. Bud made Mark proud with earning many metals, trophies and placing in the Iron Dog Competitions. Over the years, Mark trained approximately 30 dogs and took many, many bites. His latest love and last was with his dog; Bullet. Bullet took on many events and shows with dock jumping also known as dock diving, where Bullet competed in jumping for distance and height from a dock into a body of water. Currently Bullet is with the South Tier Police Department in New Jersey continuing his training as an explosive detection dog.

While in Illinois, Mark had a passion for being in the fast lane with building cars and racing at the Byron Drag Strip. However, Mark’s main love was his family. Mark was BLESSED to have very strong women in his life. Marrying his first love and last love; Cathy Evans-Condon loving her sons Christopher & Nicholas Condon of Arlington, VT. He later moved to Illinois where he met Sherry Mastricola-Doudlah, married in 1999. Loving another family: Step Daughter; Angela Mastricola-Foss (Tim) and Step son; Anthony Mastricola. (Tara) of Scottsdale Arizona. But his REAL passion, was being “Papa” to his grandchildren; Samantha and Nicholas Foss and Dominick and Dylan Mastricola.
