Mark Hecht

Mark D. Hecht

Mark D. Hecht age 62 passed away on June 6th, 2020 at his Lahaina home.

Born on Aug. 3, 1957, he was raised in Warrington, Pennsylvania graduating from Bucks Community College and settling on Maui 42 years ago.

A real renaissance man, he was passionate about the food service and hospitality industry, spending many years pursuing his love of food and people. Even after leaving to explore other opportunities he remained a chef at heart.

Community minded, he touched many lives counseling adolescents and adults here on Maui. He also dedicated energy to marine conservation.

Mark was most at home on the ocean, Pacific and Atlantic, spending much of his free time on his boat, enjoying the beautiful Maui sunrises and sunsets. If he couldn’t be on the water you could find him on a fairway enjoying the outdoors and the company of friends.

For over 20 years he worked for Berkshire Hathaway, still finding time to give back, learn, and get out on the water.

Mark was generous, honest, funny and hardworking. He was an excellent storyteller and made all those around him feel welcome with his outgoing personality. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by son Gregory Fiori (Michelle), and grandsons Shane and Benjamin.

He was the brother of Kim Amelung (James), and Michael Hecht (Cheryl). Uncle to Chelsea Welcker, Lyndsey Toney, Jesse Michener, Corey Michener, and Carley Giuliano.

A celebration of life will be held when it is safe to gather.

As an expression of sympathy, donations may be mailed to the non profit marine conservation group where he volunteered.
