It's taken me some time since Mark's passing to find the words and I still don't have them as I'm still in shock. Mark was the little brother I never had. Always a pleasure to be around and always smiling and laughing. All my love and condolences to those who loved him and who have gained a true guardian angel to guide them through life's journey. His legacy will live on. Fair winds and following seas my brother.

Gina and I are very saddened by the passing of Mark and extend our deepest condolensces to the entire Pavol family. He was an amazing individual not just as a boss but I considered him a friend as well. Always with a funny comment or booming laugh. I'll miss our many car conversations. Mark was the person you WANTED to work for. He was always there to speak with and was always concerned about how you were doing. He made us all feel like family. You will be missed by all you came in contact with.

Our deepest sympathies to the entire Pavol family. I always felt honored by Mark’s friendship and greatly appreciated his advice and counsel numerous times over the past 25 years working at Tel-Save and magicJack. Mark’s integrity and terrific work ethic caused all who knew him to respect, admire, and appreciate him. He instilled a desire in others to be/do better. I’m not surprised his last actions saved others. He “walked the talk” each and every day. May all of your wonderful memories with him sustain you through the difficult days ahead. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Diane and girls- my heart has been breaking since I heard the news of Mark passing...I couldn't and wouldn't believe it at first. It is no surprise he came to the rescue of those in need. I will forever miss the welcome Mark and your whole family has given to George and I, even when we parted ways only to come back as if we never left. I already, and will continue to miss his big smile and happy wave to us and Ava as we passed the house on the boat. I will always remember Mark, and what a caring person he was.

Neil S. White left a message on September 7, 2021:
A valued friend and one of two great role models for me at magicJack. I've always admired his business ethics and his devotion to family. At dinners after work when he was in town, he'd say, "I just want to be home with my family." That and, "Leave the salad in the garden" when ordering a burger. A funny guy who was foremost a class act and will always be remembered as a hero. Thoughts and prayers to the Pavol family.

The only thing greater than my heavy heart is how privileged and incredibly lucky I feel to have met Mark so many moons ago at Tel-Save and the many years that followed. Solid as a rock, Mark knew when it was time for work and time for play. I cherish it all.

Mark and Diane welcomed us as neighbors down the shore from the day our family moved in. We all became fast friends. Mark was always the first one to help when we needed anything, and never failed to invite us over to join in on their fun. We are so grateful to have gotten to know Mark in the short time that we did, and will never forget how warm and welcoming his family has been to us. We always talked about how lucky we are to have such great neighbors down the shore, and it could not be more true. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pavol family everyday and we are honored to have known Mark.

Sandra Morelli left a message on September 7, 2021:
When I think of Mark I can still hear him say “ Hey Snook”, as he was walking over to say hello. As you can imagine I’m 4’11 and standing next to this man I basically would disappear as he gave me a big hug hello. His smile would make me smile. It was an honor to have known him and will remember him always. To Diane, I send my condolences with deep sorrow. For all of your family and friends who loved him and feeling pain and sorrow , may all of that energy turn into peace and strength to carry you and your family through for the rest of your life.

My thoughts are with the entire Pavol family. Mark was the an outstanding human being and had a keen sense of understanding the human condition more than most. During our childhood he had an innate capacity to communicate with his big beautiful blues eyes. He never had to speak a word, you constantly knew what he was thinking by the way he would look at you. Mark selected words that would make you believe there were no limits and always gave of himself for others. I will miss my friend and hope his family can carry on with all his strength, courage, and compassion. Love you man
