I was so sorry to hear of Mark's passing. Although I did not know him very well, what I did know is he was a genuine gentleman. I met him in a church that I had just started attending, was feeling out of place and alone and he came up to me and started talking to me and bought me a coffee from the church's coffee bar. He made my day and everytime after that when he would see me around Yorkton he would take the time to stop and talk with me. Not too many Mark's in this world, he will be missed! Condolences to his wife Donna and to his precious children and extended family!!

Every time I saw Mark, his smile and face would light up, and I would gravitate to him. I remember Mark as someone who connected easily with others, had great taste in cars, and he loved his family. I am saddened by his death; so sorry for your loss. Laurie Agate
