Mark Anthony Pivetta, 55, passed unexpectedly Friday, April 12, 2019. Born June 17, 1963, Mark grew up in Lyon Mountain, N.Y., and lived most of his life in Plattsburgh, N.Y.

May god bless you and your family Mark. I still look back fondly upon our days at NAC. We laughed and laughed when we used to trade music in band. We drove Mr. Kavanaugh crazy when we rode with him to Scholars for Dollars, and we got caught hiding in the photography dark room, and going outside the old B wing doors in the dead of winter. You were so happy and sweet and very smart. May god watch over you until we meet again.
