Obituary of Mark A. Singer

Please share a memory of Mark to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Mark Alan Singer Esq., 61, of Hughestown, passed away Saturday, March 9, 2024, at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Allentown, surrounded by his family.


Mark fought a courageous health battle for the past seven months.


Mark was a son of the late Frank A. Singer Sr. and Amelia “Foglia” Singer. He was also preceded in death by his brother, Francis A. Singer.


Mark was a 1980 honors graduate of Pittston Area High School. He was a 1984 Magna Cum Laude graduate from The University of Scranton, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science and History. During his time at “The U,” he served as president of the Royals Historical Society. Mark then attended The Dickinson School of Law and earned his Juris Doctor degree in 1987.


Mark practiced law for 37 years. He was a former Lehigh County Juvenile Public Defender, a former Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney, and he owned his own practice. Since 2005, he was a Public Defender for Luzerne County, and he was the Teamsters Local 401 Union Steward for the Public Defender’s office attorneys and social workers. He was also a member of the Luzerne County Bar Association.


Mark was sworn in to practice law in all state courts in Pennsylvania, The United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court of the United States.


One of Mark’s proudest accomplishments was being a board director for the Pittston Area School District for 16 years. He served four terms as the School Board President, and he was on the Executive Board for the Pennsylvania School Board Association. He was also proud to serve as the president of the Hughestown Lion’s Club (District 14-W) from 1998-1999, in which he was named a Melvin Jones Fellow. That fellowship award is the highest form of recognition of “humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism” of the Lions Clubs International Foundation.


Mark felt honored to be a delegate for Vice President Al Gore in the 2000 Democratic National Convention.


Mark was a life member and church elder of the Second Presbyterian Church, Pittston and a Master Mason of St. John’s Lodge #233 of the Free and Accepted Masons, and he was a former member of the Salvation Army Advisory Counsel. Mark was also a former solicitor of Hughestown.


Mark loved to practice law. He was the only attorney in Luzerne County who had both prosecuted and defended a death penalty case. He shared his extensive knowledge of the law as an instructor of criminal law at Luzerne County Community College, and he was a certified police instructor by the Municipal Police Officer’s Education and Training Commission.  As an Assistant District Attorney, he served as the first assistant liaison to the upper Luzerne/lower Lackawanna County Narcotics Prevention Unit.


Mark had the biggest heart, humor, and personality. He had an eclectic taste in music, but he mostly loved classic rock—and specifically, Bruce Springsteen. He loved hot summer nights, the Fourth of July, Old Forge Pizza, Penn State Nittany Lions, a good diner, and classic movies.


He is survived by his wife of almost 36 years, Heidi; his daughter, Anjelica, and her fiancé, Stephen M. Homza. He is also survived by his brother-in-laws, Frank D. Baldygo of Kingston, Christopher J. Baldygo and wife, Deborah, of Hunlock Creek/Florida, Bryon E. Baldygo and wife, Nancy, of Exeter; his sister-in-law, Kimberly S. Reynolds and husband, Adam, of Beaumont; several nephews and nieces, and numerous cousins.


The Funeral will be held on Friday at 10:30am. from the Howell-Lussi Funeral Home Inc., 509 Wyoming Avenue, West Pittston.  A Service will be held at 11am at the Second Presbyterian Church 143 Parsonage Street Pittston.  Interment will be in the West Pittston Cemetery.
