Chino Second District City Councilman Mark Hargrove Gone At 58

Chino Councilman and former Chino Institution For Men Spokesman Mark Hargrove died on Sunday, March 28.
He was 58.
“Our entire community mourns Mark’s loss. He was a man that loved his family and saw the Chino community as an extension of that family,” said Chino Mayor Eunice Ulloa.
A 1982 Chino High School graduate, Hargrove served in the US Air Force from 1983 to 1987, achieving the rank of Sergeant. After returning to civilian status, he found employment with the California Department of Corrections for the next 30 years, 20 of which were at the California Institute for Men in Chino.
Upon his retirement as a California Department of Corrections lieutenant, Hargrove was appointed to the Chino Planning Commission. In 2018, he successfully vied to represent Chino’s District 2 on the city council, capturing 2,276 votes or 38.61 percent to defeat former Congresswoman Gloria Negrete-Mcleod, School Board Member Sylvia Orozco and Republican activist Dorothy Pineda.
As a councilman, Hargrove served as the city’s representative on the Santa Ana Watershed Advisory Council and the Citizen’s Advisory Committee to the California Institute for Men and Women. He was also a member of the Chino Valley Unified School District Measure G Oversight Committee.
Hargrove is survived by his wife, Teri, and their five children.
“It was an honor to be his colleague and friend,” said Councilman Marc Lucio.
