Mark A. Schiller, 61, of Clermont, passed away peacefully in the care of The Pines at Catskill on March 10, 2020. He was born on April 18, 1958, the son of John and Patricia (Allan) Schiller.
Mark graduated from Bloomfield High School before going on to SUNY Cobleskill where he met his wife, Cynthia. On September 26, 1981, he and Cynthia were married. Together, they raised two wonderful children. He attended Columbia Green Community College obtaining his degree in nursing. Mark was a nurse at the Columbia Memorial Hospital prior to his retirement. He had a passion for providing care for each and every patient. He also served in multiple roles within the Clermont Fire Company, including the Chief, over the course of three decades of volunteer support. As a family member, he could be counted on to fly to your aid in time of emergency, share a conversation, tell a joke, or laugh to change the mood with his signature booming laugh. He was dedicated to service and could invariably turn the prospects of each situation into something positive. He and Cynthia loved to travel, especially to any place with sun and sand. He was an avid sports fan, loved to read, and enjoyed visits with family.
Mark is survived by his two children; Daniel Schiller and Matthew and his wife Emma Schiller, and his loving grandson Hudson Schiller. Also surviving is his father; John Schiller of Victor, NY. Mark is survived also by his two brothers; Michael and John Schiller and his sister, Ellen Parshall; in addition to many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Mark is predeceased by his wife, Cynthia Schiller and his mother, Patricia A. Schiller.
