Mark Richard Grunberg

November 6, 1969 — October 11, 2023

Plant City, FL

Mark Richard Grunberg (Grunie), of Plant City, FL. passed away peacefully on October 11, 2023 at the age of 53, in Tampa, FL, surrounded by his family.  Mark was born on November 6, 1969, in Rochester, New York, and raised in Penfield, New York.  As a young boy, Mark's love for sports included football, soccer, snow skiing and water skiing.  Mark's lifelong dedication to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills exemplified his unwavering loyalty to the teams he held dear to his heart.

Later, Mark and his family made their home on the serene shores of Seneca Lake. Together, they transformed a cottage into their lakeside home. Throughout his life, he had a love for things that move fast, none more cherished than his beloved '68 Stingray Corvette and Ski Nautique boat.

Mark pursued higher education at Alfred State, where he further honed his skills and passion for construction by earning a bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Professionally, Mark distinguished himself as a construction project manager, overseeing projects for schools, fire stations, county service buildings, condos, and an airport in Hillsborough and Manatee County, Florida. He was employed  at A.D. Morgan, as project manager, building a middle school in Lakeland, FL.  His commitment to excellence and tireless work ethic earned him the respect and admiration of colleagues and clients alike.

He leaves behind a legacy of love and strength, embodied by his parents, Richard and Christine Grunberg of Penn Yan, his cherished daughter, Natalie Gruniani, and a love in his life, Michelle Grunberg, as well as his many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Mark was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emil and Katie Grunberg, Gordon and Thelma Campbell, a special Aunt, Jeanne Campbell, an infant brother, Todd Matthew and his favorite dog Seneca.

Mark will forever be remembered for his boundless spirit and his devotion to family and friends.  He leaves behind a legacy of love, strength, and enduring memories.

The family will receive friends at Weldon Funeral Home, 102 E. Main St., Penn Yan, N.Y. on Saturday, Nov. 18th from 1 - 4 P.M. followed by a memorial service, celebrating his life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to SouthEastern Guide Dogs (4210 77th St. E. Palmetto Fl 34221), a cause dear to Mark's heart.
