    • Mark’s family…..I worked with Mark at Canada Post several years ago. I often went to Mark, for help when he worked in the Delivery Service Department. He was always friendly and most helpful. Mark was a person anyone would be proud to say…they knew him. I was saddened to hear of your loss…Nancy McGowan

  2. Our deepest sympathy to Margaret and all of Mark’s family. Mark was a very kind man and with a large heart of gold who would be the first to help others. His family meant the world to him. May Mark rest in peace.

  5. It was with sincere sadness that I learned of Marks passing. His presence will indeed be missed. Mark was always willing to do whatever was necessary for the building or some personal request & readily accepted the tasks. We always knew we could count on him even when it was not his responsibility. Mark was “the go to guy” and will be difficult to replace.
    My sympathies go out to you Margaret & your entire family for your loss.
