Mark was born on March 14, 1964, in Orangeburg. He was the son of the late Herman Altman, Sr. and the late Grace Gunnels Altman. He received his Associate Degree from Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College in Computer Aided Drafting. Mark had the “gift of gab.” He enjoyed having visitors and could spend hours just sitting and talking with friends and family. He loved his family and especially his two granddaughters. Mark was proud to become an organ donor. His selfless gift will enable someone to have sight.
Survivors include his wife of thirty-nine years, Sharon W. Altman; daughter, Stacey A. Rucker (Mitch); two granddaughters, Harley and Olivia; sisters, Terry Edgemon (Charles), Tammy Fisher (Jim), Toni Phillips (Evan) and a number of nieces and nephews.
