Mark Fineman, 68, of Lake Havasu City, passed away on March 6. Mark was
born on Oct. 5, 1954 in Santa Monica, California.

After becoming sober on Oct. 16, 1982, Mark decided to dedicate his life
to helping others. He went to college and obtained his master's degree
in human resources + organizational behavior, which led him to become a
drug and alcohol counselor.

Mark worked with Mohave County Probation for 31 years and helped build
the foundations of addiction treatment. Over those years, Mark worked
with countless people, kids and families. He touched many lives by
supporting others through their addiction and sobriety journey and
helping families through various life challenges.
While he was a pillar to this community, he was also one for his family.

He is survived by Cheryl, his wife and love of his life, his daughters
Jessica Salter (husband Ken, daughters Becca, Symphonie + Allie), Leah
Hemphill (husband Jacob, son Sonny), his sons Josh Mundy (wife Taleya,
daughter Indii), Michael Mundy (wife Sierra, son Nolan) and his three
sisters Linda Gallagher (husband Dennis), Barbara Linton (husband Tom),
and Briannaa Ariel.

When he was not spending time with his family, you could find him at the
golf course, at a meeting, playing guitar, working out or at a casino.
He was known for his love of golf, his unorthodox stance and his glares.
Mark finally got his 'hole in one' on Sept. 19, 2021 after 30 years of
playing. He is predeceased by his parents Bernard and Helen Fineman.

A celebration of life will take place at the Lake Havasu Golf Club on
March 31 from 5-8 p.m. where we will enjoy all of Mark's favorite
desserts and a 21 ball salute at sunset.

In lieu of flowers please consider donating to Arizona Youth Partnership
( or Beacon of Hope Hospice, Non-Profit
