Mark P. Bickford, 67 passed away on September 10, 2023 peacefully at his home. He was born in Lake Placid, New York on July 10, 1956 to Preston Bickford and Esther (Beane) Bickford. Mark attended Lake Placid High School and graduated in 1974. Upon graduation he worked for Fagan Plumbing and Heating before going to work for the Lake Placid Village Water and Sewer Department where he remained for many years until he retired in 2013 as Foreman. Mark also worked on side jobs for many individuals doing plumbing work to get them into their homes. He loved hunting, boating, camping, anything to do with the great outdoors, but his favorite pastime was spending time with his grandchildren, family and friends with a cold brew in his hands. Mark will be missed by many people for his knowledge, quick wit, jokes, friendliness and the contagious laugh. He could cook a mean steak on the grill. He was predeceased by his parents, a loving wife Margaret "Peggy" Bickford, three Brothers Paul Bickford of Pennsylvania, Andrew Bickford of Lake Placid, and John Bickford of Lake Placid, left to cherish the memories are his daughter Pamela (Mike) Shambo of AuSable Forks and two Grandchildren, Corrine Shambo of Lake Placid, and Dexter (Felicia) Shambo of AuSable Forks. Two long-time friends Kathryn "Kook" McKillip and Tony Blair both of Lake Placid.
