Born 1991 in Scranton, he was the son of Susan Smith Muro of Scranton and the late Ronald G. Muro who died in 2005. He was a 2009 graduate of Scranton High School, attended Lackawanna College and was currently attending the Fortis Institute.
Mark, known to some of his friends as “Marcus”, was a loving son and brother. He was always walking somewhere, but especially enjoyed walking to Nay Aug Park and spending time in nature. He was a devoted, caring and supportive friend to many, many people. He was always entertaining, making up stories, doing impressions and magic tricks, and telling jokes. He could do “the worm” better than anyone! A dedicated football fan, his favorite team was the Philadelphia Eagles and he was always ready to play a pick up game with his friends. He loved his pets Tigger, Benny and Maggie. He enjoyed video games and movies and listened to all types of music . He was an avid writer and hoped to sell his writing as song lyrics. He will be forever missed by his friends and family.

Abington Twp; aunts Carol Richards and her companion Daniel Geng of Shohola and Corinne Inman and her husband John of Endicott, NY; cousins; numerous friends.
