It is with our deepest sadness and greatest love that the family wishes to announce the passing of our beloved Husband, father, brother, and friend Hewley Micheal Marks at the age of 56 years old. Hewley was greatly loved by all who had knew him. To know him is to love him. He was very generous, kind ,compassionate and always willing to give a helping hand to anyone whether it was family or strangers alike. Hewley was a man who loved his family greatly. He was always up for the next adventure. Banff ,Jasper, family trips, BBQ or house parties and we all know how he loved a good party. He was very passionate about family values.

Hewley was born on July 19, 1965 in Georgetown, Guyana. He was the son of the late Kenneth Marks and Mary Marks. He is survived by his mother Mary Marks, four older brothers, two sisters, and one younger brother, Bramwell, Claudette, Claude, Patricia, Rawle, Colin, and Hilaire. Hewley attended Saint Pius Roman Catholic School then the Government Technical Institute where he did his Electrical Studies. He then worked at Guyana Power Company, before he migrated to Canada. Before Hewley migrated to Canada he became a father to a beautiful daughter named Shunie.

He was married to Jackie Woolford, where they had one child Micheal, regrettably she passed away on June 25th, 2001. He then fell in love with Shaundell John where he had settled in Edmonton Alberta and had two children Malachi and Shaqueita Marks. His memory will be cherished by all his family and friends both here and abroad. Hewley worked as a cable technician before moving to the Edmonton Transit System as a Bus Driver for several years; before being transferred to Parks and Recreation until his passing.
Hewely had a love for automobiles and was a big fan of NASCAR which is evident by his antique model car collection, displayed in his home. Hewley looked forward to the spring and summer months. During the spring he enjoyed planting his garden and doing landscaping while in the summer time he enjoyed hosting parties and entertaining his family and friends. Whenever he hosted a party he was always the life of the party and was the one always ensuring everyone was having fun and was well fed. Hewley loved music, he was his own one-man entertainment show. Hewley was a jokester who was always ready to turn anyone's frown into a smile.

God had blessed Hewley and Shaundell with 19 years of togetherness with four children Shunie, Micheal, Malachi and Shaqueita Marks and played a vital and important part throughout his life, he was a praying man and he loved God. He attended Concordia Luthern Church and at the time of passing he was affiliated with Faith Fellowship Worship Centre where he freely praised God with his family. Hewley will be greatly missed by all who knew him. May his soul rest in perfect Peace and rise in Glory.

Viewing of the body will take place at Concordia Lutheran Church Church 6420-19A -Ave NW from 9 to 10 AM on Saturday March 05 2022 .Funeral Service will follow. Burial will take place at South Haven Cemetary.
A Zoom Link will will be posted at a later date.

  1. My Condolences to the Marks family during this very sad time. Hewley and I were friends since we were very young children. We joined one of the first young pioneers’ units, as children, in Georgetown at its Alberttown location in 1977. He was always gentle, kind, and willing to help others. Rest in peace Hewley, my friend. You will always be missed until we meet again.

  2. My deepest condolences to the entire Marks family. I grew up next door to the Marks family, from about age 7 to 16 years in Georgetown, Guyana. Many of my childhood memories were created living next door to the Marks family, including borrowing “story” books, cleaning the yard at Christmas time, listening to reggae music (Bob Marley) from the Mark’s household and they in turn listening to Indian music played by neighbors. I remember Hewley singing along to music offkey from popular Kanchan songs which I giggled to, borrowing the hose, polisher etc. to clean up the yard at Xmas time, always industrious watering and hanging the plants, scrubbing the steps, putting up blinds, and fixing up things around the house. I remember, us kids getting in trouble and teasing each other when one household (Marks or Jhappan) got “licks”. One of my last memory was when Hewley came over to our house, the night before we migrated to Canada to say goodbye to us. Rest in peace Hewley Marks. I wish the Marks family peace and comfort during this difficult time.

  7. My condolences to Hewley’s family. He and I were coworkers at ETS and became great friends. At Christmas time, Hewley often presented me with a generous portion of a delicious cake which was a special treat from Guyana. One time when I was wanting to get off work early to attend a family reunion, Hewley arrived unannounced at the transit centre and said “Lorne, I know you want to get away early today, so I’ll take over the balance your shift.” That’s the kind of guy Hewley was. He will be greatly missed.
