Obituary

Mark William Meeney, Jr. passed suddenly at his home on May 30, 2024. Mark was born on June 12, 1987 at Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck, NJ to Angela Giovatto and the late Mark W. Meeney, Sr.

Mark enjoyed listening to music, watching movies, creative tattoos, animals, and spending time with family and dear friends. He was talented in computers and technology. Most recently, he excelled in his full time job working with autistic adults in a group home setting. His compassionate and caring nature made his position there feel less of a job and more of a labor of love.

Mark had been preparing for his exam in mid June for the Apprenticeship in the Electrical Industry with Local Union 98.

He is survived by his mother, Angela Giovatto, brother, Michael C. Meeney, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Mark is preceded in death by his father, Mark W. Meeney, Sr., his paternal grandparents, James and Helen Meeney, and maternal grandparents, Maggie Flynn and Angelo Giovatto.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Visitation on Thursday, June 6, 2024 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm with a Funeral Service at 2:00 at Griffith Funeral Chapel, 520 Chester Pike, Norwood, PA 19074. Interment will be private.

    Mark was a sweet soul and a gentle human being. Despite his flaws he was still a decent human being to me.

    There are too many memories between Mark and I. One wholesome one that stands out to me is when he first came to PA from NY and I think at that time it would’ve been 5th? Anyway, I was his first friend.
    He was shy and didn’t feel comfortable talking to anybody and I picked up on that quickly and made him feel comfortable by immediately talking to him,
    getting him to warm up very quickly to me in return.
    We bonded right away and not long after we started skateboarding with eachother.
    We made a real friendship him and i. I’m sad he is not here anymore. I truly do not know if I will be able to attend his funeral because of how depressing this is. Of course he was my friend and I want to pay my respects… but this is a really painful one and not long ago I buried my stepdad.
    My heart needs healing.
    Mark man, I just want you to know regardless, that I am for any fight or falling off on my end. We just talked about hanging out again and that’s one of the worst parts about this… we will never be able to hang out again but I want you to know that I will forever cherish your friendship and that I love you like you were my brother. Love you homie!

    This is one that really hit different , There’s so many good things I feel like I could say about him sweet, funny, resilient too many to list he was def taken prematurely and it’s heartbreaking for his family friends ughh man I hate even having to write this I don’t want it to be true!! I smile with tears in my eyes because his presence alone always made me smile so what I’ll take with me is all good the funny loving caring Mark I knew and forever hold you in my heart.
    I hope your dancing in the sky ❤️❤️❤️

    Today I said goodbye to my dear childhood friend 💔 you were the most gentle soul who loved everyone and wanted people to feel included. Especially the weird kids. We were all a little bit weird and that’s why we understood each other so well. Anyone that truly knew Mark would fall in love with his charm and humor immediately. He was a genuine soul touched by so many who were fortunate enough to call him a friend. A big part of my heart broke when I heard that God needed you more than we did. I love you and I look forward to the day I get to feel your bear hugs again. Forever your near sighted, awkward soul sister, Kelly 💔😭
