It is with profound sadness we share with our dearest friends and family that Mark Smith, previous Harwick Homes owner, immediate past president and board member, passed away Tuesday, February 23 after a valiant and honorable battle with Cholangiocarcinoma.
Mark was a leading member of the Harwick team since 1993, where his diligent attention to detail helped the company receive numerous national, regional and local accolades for its projects. He sincerely appreciated being with people and building lasting, enriching relationships with clients and colleagues. Mark enjoyed spending time with Vicky, his wife of more than 30 years, and daughters Paige and Taylor at the beach, restoring cars, boating, sailing, skiing, and ﬁshing. We are grateful for the time we shared with him.
Mark will be greatly missed by everyone at Harwick Homes, and we humbly extend our deepest condolences to Vicky, Paige, Taylor, and the entire Smith family.
Remembrances may be made in the form of charitable contributions to Captains For Clean Water, 2031 Jackson St., Fort Myers, FL 33901.
In the 1980’s, Harwick Homes began taking on projects as a small custom homebuilder with one employee. The company built a small number of residences in Imperial Golf Estates, a 700-acre gated enclave of luxury homes in a coveted North Naples location just minutes from the beach.
According to President Shane Klepko, within the past 10 years Harwick has evolved into building and remodeling homes, as well as providing estate management services in the area’s largest, most notable master-planned communities including Bonita Bay, Grey Oaks, Mediterra and Estuary at Grey Oaks.
