It is with deep sadness we report the passing of Mark Savino.
Savino, 35, has been identified as the victim in the tragic accident of Route 9W in Congers on Saturday. He is a lifelong resident of Congers and comes from a proud family with strong ties to the area. Mark was a beloved employee/technician at Congers Collision.
Below is a review left by a motorist who Mark assisted and encompasses who he was a person.
“My vehicle broke down on IS 87. I nearly made it to the shoulder of the road. Congers Collision came to pick me up and tow my vehicle. The technician that came was Mark S. At first glance he asked me if I was ok. I smiled and said yes. He was very gracious and thoughtful. I immediately felt safe. He is just the nicest guy you want to meet. As frightened as I was on that highway….he made me feel very glad “he” was the one to come to my aide – “ Sandra
