Mark T. Wetmore

Mark Wetmore

December 12, 1955 - August 27, 2022

 

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

- Theodore Roosevelt

 

A proud graduate of the CB West (‘73), Mark attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and graduated with a degree in criminal justice in 1977. Mark realized his dream of becoming a police officer in 1978 with the Doylestown Township Police Department; he would go on to protect and serve the greater Doylestown community over the next 38 years, until his retirement at the conclusion of 2015. Sincerely enjoying the opportunity to engage with the Doylestown community directly, Mark achieved the rank of sergeant in 1983, and “Sgt. Friendly” contentedly supported his family of squads for the remainder of his career. Mark was blessed to have so many of his colleagues turn into dear friends.

When Mark was not working for the township, he was the head of a one-man landscaping business, primarily around his neighborhood. In his free time, Mark enjoyed golfing and deer hunting up at the familial grounds in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, as well as vacationing down the shore with lifelong friends. He was an avid reader of history books, particularly loving books on the Civil War and U.S. presidents. Additionally, Mark was a die-hard Phillies and Eagles fan, always carving out time in his schedule to watch the Phils and Birds, or catching them on the radio in his police cruiser.

Mark and his witty, yet loving straight-shooter candor will be dearly missed by all who knew him, including his large swath of extended family, his neighbors, and his many friends. An enormous hole has been left behind in the hearts of his beautiful bride of over 42 years, Teresa, as well as his beloved son, Andrew, 32, of Chicago, IL, and his three sisters: Cheryl Berner of Auburndale, FL; Janet Gehres and her husband, Rainer, of Wallkill, NY; and Joyce Zentmeyer and her husband, Jim, of Davisville, MI.

His family will receive relatives and friends on Friday, September 9, 2022 from 5:30 - 8:00PM in the Joseph A. Fluehr III Funeral Home, 241 East Butler Ave. (at Sandy Ridge Rd.) New Britain, PA 18901 and again on Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 11:00AM until his Memorial Service at 12:30PM. His interment will be held privately at a later date.

Guests are invited to don bright orange socks if interested, a favorite quirky tradition of Mark’s for any formal events.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to American Red Cross, 2221 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, (www.redcross.com), Project H.O.M.E., 1515 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130 (www.projecthome.org), New Britain Baptist Church Food Larder, 22 East Butler Ave., New Britain, PA 18901, (www.newbritainbaptistchurch.org) or Bucks County Housing Group/Food Pantry, 626 Jacksonville Road, Suite 140, Warminster, PA 18974, (www.bchg.org).
