Obituary

Mark Wyman Biscoe, Sr., 84, passed away peacefully December 19, 2020 surrounded by those who loved him most at Maine Medical Center in Portland.

He was born August 10, 1936 in Boston, the son of Jonathan and Martha Biscoe. Mark graduated from Orono High School and received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Maine.

Mark married the love of his life Jane E. Quimby on August 22, 1959 and together they raised three children Mark, Jr. (Terry), Andrew (DeAnne), and Katherine.

He is also survived by his sister, Mary Biscoe and seven beloved grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Mark was predeceased by his parents, his two brothers, Jack and Gerald; and his son-in-law, Thomas Turlo.
Mark touched countless lives in his 37-year career as teacher, coach, and administrator at The Fenn School in Concord, Mass. Upon his retirement, his interest in maritime history led to the publication of three books. He enjoyed many volunteer activities in the Midcoast Maine region.

His love for his family was exceeded only by his passion for coaching basketball, mentoring young lives, and his devotion to the Oakland A’s.

A celebration of Mark’s life will be held at a later date.

Those who wish to remember Mark in a special way, may make gifts in his memory to The Waldoborough Historical Society, P.O. Box 691, Waldoboro, ME 04572 or The Fenn School, 516 Monument Street, Concord, MA 01742.

Friends and Family are invited to share their memories of Mark by visiting his book of memories at www.hallfuneralhomes.com. Arrangements are entrusted to Hall Funeral Home 949 Main Street Waldoboro, ME 04572.

Dear Mrs. Biscoe,

I look back fondly on my three years at Fenn School from 1969-1972. Mr Biscoe had a kind but commanding presence in the classroom in the Schoolhouse, trying to instill good behavior in his ne'r do well 12-14 year old charges. He and Mr. Butcher were also kind masters aboard the Merlie B Crowley II as we sailed Down East from the Cape to Mt Desert on one week cruises in 1970 and 1971 loaded with unskilled midshipmen from Fenn School. It's the only time I've had the pleasure of stepping ashore at the Isles of Shoals, or eating popovers at the Jordan Pond House after hiking up out of Somes Sound over the weathered granite peaks of Mt. Desert Island on barely attached iron ladders.

When I sail Down East now, about every other year, it's in the company of a strict Exeter classmate master. We sail straight up the center of the Gulf of Maine, with the whole trip scheduled for under 36 hours.

More recently, I have enjoyed our conversations at various Fenn School functions. I emailed Mr. Biscoe on November 30th, 2020 with the playbill from a remarkable engagement of the Fenn Players presenting Dirty Work at The Crossroads with yours truly staring as Mrs. Upton Asterbilt, and a certification from William S Butcher that John Reichenbach had navigated through fog in restricted waters to his satisfaction. I found these two pieces of ephemera in the detritus of our house of 22 years; as of Friday, the house is on to its new owners.

Mr Biscoe replied the following day, December 1, 2020, as follows:

John, This is fantastic!! Sorry for not returning your message sooner but we just became liberated from 22 hours of NO POWER here in Brunswick.

LOVED looking at that playbill and remembering all you guys. And what a memory of our cruises.

Thanks so much, John. Hope to see you again soon. Stay well.

Mark

Mark (no longer Mr. Biscoe) has been a near constant in my life for more than 50 years. I will miss him.

Dear Jane,
So deeply saddened to learn of Mark's passing. So many fond memories of Fenn and having the unique experience of being a Fenn boarder for 3 years. I owe a lot to that experience as an early teen and grateful for having Mark's guidance. Many wonderful moments of living first in the Farm House and then WW Fenn, as well as having extra time to practice my basketball skills after evening study hall. My heartfelt sympathy and best wishes. Eric Hedblom (68)

Jane,
We were so, so sad to learn of Mark’s passing. We spent time talking to our son-in-law, Chip, and our daughter, Jen, about how important Mark was in Chip’s early years. Dick and I felt very fortunate that we were able to meet both you and Mark. We wish we had spent way more time with such a vivacious and interesting couple. Please know that we are sending our very heartfelt sympathies to you and all the family. May you find joy in wonderful, unforgettable memories and comfort in the love you share with each other.
Emily and Dick MacKenzie
