The glass industry is mourning the unexpected passing of another industry member.

Mark Pasion, 59, project manager at All New Glass in Auburn, Wash., died on September 21.

Pasion was also treasurer of the Washington Glass Association (WGA) and a member of the WGA Golf Committee. He previously served as secretary and director of WGA. He was in the local glass community for more than 35 years.

“His bright light, distinctive laugh and contagious smile will be severely missed,” says Maryanne Howell, executive director of the WGA.
