Mark Adam Steiner, 61, of Portland, CT. formerly of East Hampton, CT. passed away suddenly on Sunday February 27th, 2022, after a tragic car accident.

(Bouchard) Steiner of East Hampton, CT; his sister Jackie Cuesta and her husband Michael, and their two children Emilio and Mina of Long Island, NY; and his partner Diana Gualano of Farmington, CT.
Mark grew up on Long Island, New York and later moved to Connecticut where he was a physical education teacher in the Hartford Public Schools for many years. Mark was an avid musician who wrote and performed his own music. He loved to play guitar, a talent his daughter Sonoma has picked up from him. He loved the outdoors and had a strong passion for fishing that he shared with and passed on to his son Hunter. Above all else, Mark’s greatest love was his children and he enjoyed spending time with them.
