Mark R. Saewert of Weston passed away in his home on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016.

Beloved brother and best friend of Mary French of Charleston, South Carolina and Ann Weissler of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Devoted uncle to Lewis and Rebecca French of Minneapolis, Minnesota and Sam Weissler of Durham, North Carolina and Kate Weissler of Washington, DC. He was the son of the late Russell and Catherine Saewert of Weston.

Mark was a gentle soul who loved his family and friends. Our father called him, 'the salt of the earth'. Mark was always ready and happy to help. He was a kind man who saw the value and potential in everyone and he wanted to see them succeed in their endeavors. He was generous to an extreme to all who were lucky enough to know him. He knew that learning was understanding something you've known all your life, but seeing it in a new way. He always sent us articles from the Wall Street Journal to help us see the humor and irony in current events. Mark loved gardening in the backyard, growing vegetables and flowers, taking pride watching the hand of God moving through his work. He cherished concert performances and frequent summer trips to the New Hampshire seacoast region. His customers at the Charles Street store in Beacon Hill loved him and looked forward to seeing him. In 35 years at the store he saw them grow as the neighborhood changed. He realized, as G.K. Chesterton wrote, 'Real development is not leaving things behind, as on a road, but drawing life from them, as a root'.

Thank you for making a donation in his memory to the Dictionary Project, PO Box 1845, Charleston, South Carolina in honor of Mark's love of words and support for this program. Please include a letter telling us how Mark touched your life.

A celebration of Mark's life will be held at a later date.
