Mark D. Hecht age 62 passed away on June 6th, 2020 at his Lahaina home.

Born on August 3, 1957, he was raised in Warrington, Pennsylvania graduating from Bucks Community College and settling on Maui 42 years ago.

A real renaissance man, he was passionate about the food service and hospitality industry, spending many years pursuing his love of food and people. Even after leaving to explore other opportunities he remained a chef at heart.

Community minded, he touched many lives counseling adolescents and adults here on Maui. He also dedicated energy to marine conservation.

Mark was most at home on the ocean, Pacific and Atlantic, spending much of his free time on his boat, enjoying the beautiful Maui sunrises and sunsets. If he couldn’t be on the water you could find him on a fairway enjoying the outdoors and the company of friends.

For over 20 years he worked for Berkshire Hathaway, still finding time to give back, learn, and get out on the water.

Mark was generous, honest, funny and hardworking. He was an excellent storyteller and made all those around him feel welcome with his outgoing personality. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by son Gregory Fiori (Michelle), and grandsons Shane and Benjamin.

He was the brother of Kim Amelung (James), and Michael Hecht (Cheryl). Uncle to Chelsea Welcker, Lyndsey Toney, Jesse Michener, Corey Michener, and Carley Giuliano.

A celebration of life will be held when it is safe to gather.

As an expression of sympathy, donations may be mailed to the non profit marine conservation group where he volunteered.

First cousin, terrific person, simply one of the best. We reconnected about 10 years ago and it was as if we had never lost touch. We were VERY close from that point....I am very lucky to be able to call him my cousin and wonderful friend. He will always be in my heart.

I had the privilege of knowing Mark for a very short time and everything all of you are saying about him is the truth I learned over one dinner together. It was my turn to return the Aloha he so graciously gave that I will not have. Life is so short and am so grateful I met such a fine person in Mark. God bless you friend and mahalo for all of your Aloha you selflessly gave our people and aina. I will miss you.

Mark and my brother Dan Doyle were good friends. They both died way too early. I posted my favorite picture of the 2 of them years ago on the west coast. I'm sure they are partying together now! Love from all the Doyle family to the Hecht family. Keep us posted when the celebration of Mark's life will be. Thanks, Mary Doyle Roth

Mark was my uncle and would help me and give me advice on just about everything. This so hard. I just keep thinking I wish I could talk to him about this. I miss meeting up for coffee or eating dinner with him. I miss talking on the phone or recently we were always washing my car for some reason. He would lecture me about the "right way" to wash a car while we'd catch up. I miss his jokes, and his stories, and the big hug he'd always give me before I'd leave. He was an amazing human being and the best uncle. I love you.
