Mark Richard Mamas, a loving father, devoted brother, and successful owner and operator of Portsmouth Motors and M & M Auto, passed away on December 3, 2023. Born on September 5, 1951, in Portsmouth, OH, Mark brought joy and laughter into the lives of all who knew him.


Mark's compassionate nature was evident in his interactions with others. He had an uncanny ability to see the potential in everyone, even when others could not. He cherished spending quality time with his children, grandchildren, and even himself. His thoughtfulness, warm-heartedness, and quick wit won him many friendships throughout his life.


Among his many passions, Mark had a deep love for classic cars, racing, boating, and bicycling. With a zest for life, he enjoyed soaking up the sun and making memories at the beach. Mark's enthusiasm for these activities brought joy to those around him and created lasting bonds with like-minded individuals.

"Caden Jacob," held a special place in his heart. Additionally, Mark was a loving bonus father to Jaime Nichole, Kristian, and Michael.

Mark is also survived by his caring sister, Lisa Mamas.
