The name of a Massachusetts man who died while hiking recently has been released.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, shortly after 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, Massachusetts State Police responded to Breakheart Reservation in Saugus after the body of a deceased adult male was discovered in a wooded area.

Today, it was released that 65-year-old Mark Arsenault died while hiking in the reservation.

According to an obituary, Arsenault was a master finish carpenter and “found immense joy in being active outdoors, surrounding himself with the wonders of nature. He cherished moments of hiking, boating, playing pickleball, golfing, and taking leisurely walks with his adored dog, Marley. Mark was also an avid motorcyclist and took great delight in cruising around in his antique Corvette. However, above all, his heart was filled with immense love for his family and friends.”

Arsenault leaves behind a wife, two children, and two grandchildren.

A GoFundMe fundraiser reveals that those who knew Arsenault are having a difficult time dealing with his sudden death.
