Mark’s mother Carol had split up with her husband, William Pellegrino, and had a relationship with another man, conceiving Mark, before reuniting with her husband William, and divorcing during Mark’s early years. Mark discovered that William Pellegrino was not his biological father when he was twenty three. His biological father, Jerry, was a musician and bank president, and was said to have been of German descent. A DNA test taken by Mark indicated that he has no Italian ancestry.
