FAIRFIELD – Mark A. Trial, 57, passed away at his home on Dec. 4, 2019. This jerk shocked and saddened his family and friends. His light and humor will be forever missed at family gatherings and at work every day. From Uncle Rico, to Smurfs and chickens at work, there are too many happy memories to count. Mark would tell you to keep it in your sneaker!

Mark spent the last years working at J.S. McCarthy. He had a massive work family including his work wife, Ann. Before J.S. McCarthy, Dad spent numerous years at Huhtamaki. He loved spending time with his granddaughter Jerika, shopping on the weekends and eating at Ming Lee. Mark had an undying love for the Patriots, Trump, and his kids. In no particular order…
