A service of thanksgiving for the life of Mark Alderman will be held at Bethel Grove Bible Church on Saturday, April 8, at 11:00 a.m., with a reception to follow in the church building.
A private interment service will be held in Danby Rural Cemetery. There are no calling hours, and in lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to a memorial fund established in Mark's memory at Bethel Grove Bible Church, 1763 Slaterville Road, Ithaca, NY 14850. Employees of Ithaca College are also working toward establishing a fund to help support the Alderman family. More information on this fund will follow as soon as it becomes available.
Central to Mark’s life was his strong and abiding faith in God, demonstrated in practical acts of service and kindness, generously bestowed on family, church, colleagues, and community. Though we grieve for his absence from us, we rejoice that Mark has finished the race and received the goal of his faith, eternal life in Jesus Christ.
