Brevard, NC

Mark Lavery, 68, of Rosman, joined his Heavenly Father suddenly on January 24, 2022. A native of Schenectady, New York, he was the son of the late Paul and Marion Boland Lavery. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his brothers, Paul and Stephen Lavery.

In his early years, Mark worked in Texas on the oil rigs and later ran a family business, Lavery & Sons Painting. He was an active member of his church, East Fork Baptist Church, and loved to play the guitar for the Lord.

What brought him the most joy was spending time with his family. He was each and every one of his grandkid’s number one fan in all of the activities they participated in, from sports to the arts. He also loved to travel and cruise with his family.

He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Betty oliver Callahan and his brother, Bobby (Laurie) Lavery.
