Mark Robuck II, age 45, most recently residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania died in Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia on January 20, 2024 surrounded by his family.
He was born in Raliegh, North Carolina in 1978 to Mark Joseph Robuck, I and Lynelle Coveleski Robuck, their first-born son who they remember as a brilliant, joyful, and kind-hearted child who loved sports and music.
Mark graduated high school from Archmere Academy in 1997, and then soon after joined the United States Marines with an MOS of ITS Specialist and Management. He served active duty for 5 years before his honorable discharge as a Lance Corporal in December 2006. During his service in the Marine Corps, he welcomed his first child, Mark Joseph Robuck, III in June of 2001.
Mark received his Associate’s Degree in Business with honors from Delaware County Community College in 2009, his Bachelor’s Degree in Business with honors from Drexel University in 2019, and was progressing towards Master’s Degree from LeBow Business School of Drexel.
Mark was always exceptionally passionate about music, DJing, and the joy and energy he felt he could bring to a room through that vocation. His DJ name was DJ Robi1, often referring to himself as Robi1Konobi. He was a successful musical entrepreneur, with a deep love and enjoyment of the industry.
He took a three-year hiatus from DJing to try his hand at deep sea fishing, something he always wanted to experience and deeply enjoyed.
His kindness and generosity as a person attracted so many, and the abundance of his exceptional friendships endured for decades. He loved all things Philadelphia sports, cooking, gaming, bowling, fantasy football with his league buddies, seafood (especially clams and crabs!), a great Chinese buffet, the ocean and summers down the shore, helping others, and his family.
Mark will always be remembered for his adventurous spirit, his willingness to give you the shirt off his back, his unwavering kindness to others, and his hurricane force ability to love with an unparalleled ferocity.
Mark is survived by his mother, Lynelle; father, Mark; son, Mark III; son, Ryan; brother, Austin; sisters, Jessa and Anna, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
A Funeral Mass will be offered at 12:00PM on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 212 Meredith Street, Kennett Square. The family will receiving guests at 11:30AM at the church entrance. Burial will follow the Funeral Mass with United States Marine Corps honors in St. Patrick Cemetery. Following the burial, all in attendance are invited to join the family for a luncheon in celebration of Mark’s life at Mendenhall Inn, 323 Kennett Pike, Mendenhall, PA.
While we thank you for your kindness in remembrance of Mark, we please ask that no flowers be sent. In lieu of flowers, Mark worked with a few charities that were dear to his heart that we would ask donations in his remembrance be sent instead: Wounded Warriors Veteran’s Assistance program https://secure.uso.org/ and Project Home in Philadelphia (Crowdfunding Landing Page - Campaign https://www.projecthome.org/?campaign=494158 . Mark personally volunteered his time with Project Home and was deeply invested in working and volunteering with the homeless community.
In his final moments, Mark continued his lifetime demonstration of the spirit of giving by becoming an organ donor, facilitated by the organization Gift of Life. We encourage others to explore the possibility of becoming an organ donor by selecting this designation on your next license renewal to give the gift of a second chance at life as Mark did to several others after his passing.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present not the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
