Mark Lamont Visyak, 59, formerly of Grand Terrace and Highgrove, passed away on Aug. 15, 2019 in Fontana, surrounded by his family and close friends.
He was born May 5, 1960, in Fontana to Paul and Nancy Visyak. On May 2, 1998, he married his beloved wife, Christine, and together they raised two sons.
After eight years with the Fire Department and more than 30 years as an Animal Control Officer, Mark retired last year to become an avid traveler. He enjoyed cruising and traveling in his RV through the Western United States. He had a passion for trains and photography. He often embarked on his own adventures to capture the perfect picture of the trains running through Cajon Pass and other places.
Mark also served on the Municipal Advisory Council for Highgrove for many years and was awarded many accolades for his work with Animal Control and the City of Eastvale.
Mark is survived by his wife, Christine, sons Trenton and Tyler, his mother Nancy, and his siblings Scott, Sharon and Cheryl. He is also survived by eight nieces and five nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Paul, who passed away in February 2005.
