The 47-year-old was taken to hospital but sadly diedon Saturday morning (5 September).
Speaking following his death, Mark’s father Charles described his son as having a ‘strong character.’
He added: “As a youngster he got into the usual scrapes that boys do but nothing out of the ordinary.
“Sadly he had become more withdrawn as the years went by spending a lot of time alone and only occasionally with friends.
“We had a good relationship, which was maintained over the years by weekly conversations on the phone.
“I am distraught he will no longer be a part of my life and I will miss talking to him greatly.”
An 18-year-old man from Rugby has been charged with murder in connection with the incident.
