Service set for man found dead

Memorial services will be held Wednesday for a local man whose body was found in a remote area of a Belmont Park on Friday.

San Carlos resident Mark Gavron, 36, was identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office. Although medical examiners performed an autopsy Saturday, they could not determine how Gavron died and are awaiting toxicology reports, a Coroner’s Office spokesman said Sunday.

Foul play is not suspected, according to Belmont police Cpl. Bill McGuigan.

Gavron’s family declined to comment on the case, or on the man’s life, Sunday.

He was reported missing to Belmont police Friday morning, according to Belmont police Sgt. Patrick Halleran. Police located Gavron’s car in the parking lot of Twin Pines Park, near the Belmont Police Department’s headquarters.

Police personnel found Gavron’s body in a remote part of the park at approximately 4:20 p.m., according to Halleran.

Twin Pines Park, a 10-acre wooded park, is bordered by Ralston Avenue to the north and Talbryn Drive to the south. Belmont’s City Hall, Police Department, historical society and senior and community center are located at the west end of Twin Pines Park, which hosts local events such as the Arts and Wine festival.

Memorial services for Gavron are scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. Charles Catholic Church, located at 800 Tamarack Drive, San Carlos.
