Mark E. Smith, 47, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018, surrounded by his family at home in Shavertown, PA.
Mark was Pride Mobility’s General Manager for Public Relations and Consumer Research for 18 years. He was also a well-known member of the disability community as an author, public speaker and advocate. Mark made a positive difference in the world through his writing, speaking and thousands of personal interactions. He was perhaps best known for his popular and occasionally irreverent website wheelchairjunkie.com. He led a rewarding, rich life with cerebral palsy and was a loving husband and father.
The fortitude Mark showed in facing the challenges of his life and the passion he had for making a difference in the lives of others was a great inspiration to all of us at Pride. He will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Holly, and daughters, Emily and Annabelle.
