Mark Robert Seltzer

July 4, 1950 - November 1, 2020

Mark Robert Seltzer, 70, a resident of Fort Myers, FL since 1997, formerly of Coconut Creek, FL and West Paterson, NJ, passed away Sunday, November 1, 2020 in Fort Myers. He was born July 4, 1950 in Bronx, NY to Joseph and Laura Seltzer, now deceased.

Mark graduated from Adelphi University with a business degree.  He was a member of Next Level Church in Fort Myers and worked as a Crime Analyst for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for over 15 years.

He was a very detail-oriented person.  If you asked him a question, he wouldn’t answer unless he knew the answer was correct and he could prove it.  He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed playing pranks on others and being surprised when they got him back.  He always made it a point to speak to everyone he came across and if you were ill, always tried to make you feel better.  He found joy in giving to others and was loved and appreciated by all those who knew him.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife of 23 years, Jackie Seltzer of Fort Myers; two loving children, Taylor Seltzer and Travis Seltzer, both of Fort Myers; mother in law, Maria Politi of Cape Coral; father in law, Epifanio Suarez (Sara) of Miami, FL; as well as Pablo, the dog.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM Saturday, November 21, 2020 at Next Level Church, 12400 Plantation Rd., Fort Myers, FL 33966.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    We will deeply miss Mark. Any neighbor on Trentwood Court could be assured that if there was something amiss at their home, Mark would notice and let you know. I could always travel with a calm mind knowing that Mark would be looking out for my home – even if I didn’t ask him to. He was like our guardian angel on earth – now he’s our guardian angel in heaven. He was the first one to welcome us to the neighborhood and made us feel immediately at home. I could always count on Mark to know what was going on or what WENT on in the community. He always made you feel like you were doing a good job. If you did anything to improve your yard, he was the first to tell you how great it looked. He was a good man and clearly a good father. His sons are true gentlemen who have been raised to be exceptional young men. Our hearts are broken, but we know his faith brought him straight into the arms of our Savior. Rest well Mark.

    We will miss talking with Mark as he walked the dog and his friendly wave as he drove by. He was a great neighbor. Our thoughts are with Jackie, Taylor and Travis. The boys are a true reflection of Mark’s gentle nature and outgoing personality.
