He graduated from Milford High School, Davidson College, and Villanova Law School. Mark worked as an attorney for Duane, Morris, and Hecksher in Wilmington, his family’s business in Milford, Moore and Rutt in Georgetown, and as a public defender in Sussex County.

He is survived by a daughter, Anna Kathleen Steiner of Lewes; his ex-wife, Paula Ryan of Lewes; his parents, Edward J. and Marjorie Steiner, 24 S.
