Mark Nathan Reade, loving husband, son, brother, uncle and brother-in-law, passed away Friday in Newport Beach, at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian

Mark, the first child of Nathan and Thelma Reade, was born on October 9, 1945, in Fullerton California. He would  be followed by three younger sisters , Carol, Susan, and Irene, who adored their older brother.

After graduating from the University of California and his beloved University of Oklahoma, where he obtained his doctorate degree, Mark touched the countless lives of his patients, and their children in his practice a s a Child Psychologist .  His successes  led him to his ultimate position as  Director of Mental Health at  the Scripps Health Care Facility in San Diego, where he remained until his passing.

In 2001, Mark met the love of his life, Heather Bernstein.  Upon realizing that he had finally found his soul mate, they were married in 2003.

In addition to his mother, wife and sisters, Mark  had an incredible presence in the lives of his Nieces, Melissa, Evelyn, and Elizabeth, as well as his nephews Andrew and Scott, and his brother inlaw Rick.

Although gone from this world he will always be held tightly in the hearts and souls of those who loved him.

Mark was an outstanding CMHS Alumni! It would be nice if we had an Alumni Hall of Fame so we could celebrate the achievements of our classmates. I knew nothing of Mark's work but am proud of him.
