Mark Kevin Sleeper, 52, of Thornton NH, passed away April 12th at home, after losing a battle with cancer.

Mark was born in Miami Florida, January 16, 1968, the youngest son to the late Walter and May Sleeper of Thornton. They moved with his family to Thornton, New Hampshire where he has continued to live since childhood. He attended Thornton Central School and then later attended Plymouth Regional High School.

Mark was quite an athlete during his school days, where he excelled in baseball, football and basketball. He received many athletic awards and helped lead his teams to victory while he served as Captain. He was elected into this role by his teammates in all three sports. He was easily recognized by his powerful 6’4” stature. Mark’s closest friends knew him as “beef” or “Sleep.” He was humble but proud of his many athletic accomplishments. Some of which were his nomination to All-State, playing on the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl team, and being a part of a winning legacy with the Bobcats Football team, where he was a starter for both his Junior and Senior years. He might be most well remembered for kicking the WINNING field-goal in the last seconds of a game against a long-time rival team. One of Mark’s most prized possessions is a baseball bat that has recently been passed on to his son. This is the bat he carried to the plate when he hit a homerun ball so hard into the outfield of D&M Park- that he took out a light.

Mark will be sincerely missed by his many teammates and coaches, friends and family and all those whose lives he touched.

Mark is survived by his only son Dane Sleeper. Mark is also survived by his brother Doug Sleeper of Vermont, his sister Debbie Anderson of Thornton, his brother Terry Sleeper of Meredith, and his sister Karen Johnston of Campton. He also leaves behind ten nieces and nephews, and four great nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be arranged as soon as can be permitted.
