Mark K. Hadsell

Scio, NY - Mark K. Hadsell, 61, of Scio passed away at home on Tuesday, January 6, 2014 surrounded by his family. He was born December 18, 1953 in Niagara Falls the son of the late Earl E. and Eleanor (Rowles) Hadsell. On June 27, 1987 he married the love of his life, Jacqueline Shipley who survives.

Mark was formerly employed at Carborundum in Niagara Falls, Prestress Inc. in Lockport, CDI in Lockport, Kenmore Builders, and was a driver for Morningstar Concrete Company. Mark loved to hunt and was a diehard Buffalo Bills fan. He also loved spending time with his grandchildren and taking them on vacation to Mexico. His dream came true; when in 1999 he had the opportunity to move to the Southern tier and buy JC’s in Belmont. He spent many summers as a child with his grandparents, aunts and uncles in the southern tier and loved the people there. In his younger years, he made several mission trips to Arizona to work with the Navajo Indians. He fought cancer the same way he lived; with a smile and always felt blessed by God.  

Surviving in addition to his wife of 27 years, are three children, Kevin Hadsell of Freedom, PA, Adrienne (Gary) Ordway of Belmont and Mark K. Hadsell of Florida, 11 grandchildren, two loving sisters, Starr Hadsell of Lockport and Merryann (Paul) Pavlock of Middleport, two brothers, Ron (Deb) Irwin of Lockport, and Earl W. Hadsell of Arizona, his beloved stepmother, Shirley Hadsell of Lyndonville, three step brothers, Richard and Scott Harris both of Florida, and Jon Harris of Fort Benning, GA, several nieces & nephews and his best friend, Mike Crowe of Belmont. He was predeceased in addition to his parents by a grandson, Mark K. Hadsell III and one brother Ty Hadsell.

Friends and family are invited to gather at JC’s, 31 Schuyler Street in Belmont on Saturday, January 17, 2015 beginning at 1:00 pm to celebrate Mark’s life. The family requests that memorial donations be made to Allegany County Cancer Services. A memorial bike run will be planned for a later date to help children with cancer in Allegany County.
