On Monday, March 26, 2018, Dr. Mark Stephen Mason passed away at his home in Haymarket, Virginia after a brave fight with liver cancer. He was surrounded by his family: his wife of 39 years, Dr. Marsha Mason, his two daughters, Kelly Mason and Allison Mason Diamond, and his son, Dr. Mark Stephen Mason, Jr.
Mark was born on March 30, 1947 in Washington, D.C. He practiced as a general surgeon for 30 years and was known not only for his skill, but for the compassion and humor that he showed his patients. After he “retired,” Mark offered his time and expertise freely, volunteering with the Prince William Free Clinic and Medical Missionaries.
Mark had many passions. He was an avid outdoorsman, reader, collector, but his greatest love was his family. His children cherished his thoughtful perspective on life. He traveled the world, always with his wife by his side.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mark’s memory to the Inova Schar Cancer Institute, the Prince William Area Free Clinic, or the Shenandoah National Park Trust.
