Ed Marks grew up here, participating in Newtown Parks & Recreation activities and playing sports on fields across town throughout his childhood, and continued to do so in men’s softball leagues while his children followed in his sports-playing footprints. For the past decade and a half, Marks has played a significant role in the progress of athletics and recreation on those very same fields, first serving on the Newtown Parks & Recreation Commission, and eventually becoming chairman in 2007.
