Mark Marotta, 36, of Red Hook, died April 14, 2018 at Northern Dutchess Hospital after a brief illness. He was the beloved son of Alfred Marotta and Monika Norden of Hopewell Junction. Mark grew up in Hopewell and attended Wappingers schools and Dutchess BOCES. He resided in a group home operated by Cardinal Hayes Home for Children.
