MARK EVERTON It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father and brother, Mark Everton. Surrounded by his family, his battle with cancer ended on Friday, August 3, 2012. Mark was a kind, generous man who could always be counted on to help in any situation. He was an amazing and wonderful husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed by his wife, Debbie, his daughters, Amanda and her husband Blair, Hilary and her husband Dan, and his grandchildren, Barak, Nolan, Jillian and Jack. He also leaves to mourn, his brothers, Joe (Dorothy), Andy, Jim (Susan) and his sisters, Alice, Susan and Lisa (Ron) and many nephews and nieces. Mark will be missed deeply by his in-laws, Gordon, Diana, Lori and Susan. He was predeceased by his father, Arthur, mother, Genevieve and brother, Ferdie. We would like to thank St. Boniface Hospital Emergency and CancerCare for the wonderful care and support he received during his illness. An intimate memorial with close family will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pancreatic Cancer Canada www.pancreaticcancercanada.ca.

- Deb, Hilary, Amanda and families. Just wanted to say how sorry we are to hear of Mark's passing. We only knew him a few years but he was a super guy. We really enjoyed his visits to the lake with Dan when they would come over for a chat. We will miss that very much. He certainly was a great man in every way. Hope that you all will have many happy memories of him in years to come and keep his memory alive for his beautiful grandchildren. Rest in Peace Mark. Hope there is another Malachi up there for you.

- Firstly, my condolences to Deb and family, actually to anyone that knew Mark. He is a great loss to all of us. We go back many years, to elementary school. I have lots of memories that are surfacing now, things that I hadn't thought about for years. The New Years Eve's we spent playing Rummoli. The Mexican vacation, looking for the "Big Pyramid." The family trips to visit you guys in the "Fort." Our trip to the mountains with the babies and the trailer full of diapers. So many things..... By the way Deb, it WAS me that suggested those tuxes at your wedding :-) I could ramble on for pages but I'm ending this with a question for Mark. Is there Nascar in heaven? I miss you buddy, rest in peace.

- Mark was a great gentle man with a big heart that will be missed. He would travel many times the distance to help family and friends to make their lives a better place. He had the wisdom of a book worm when it came to a problem or project. Thank you Mark for being a great friend in my life. I was very very saddened on the news of your short battle with your illness and how fast you left us, my heart is deepened with sorrow for Deb, Amanda, Hillary and your grandchildren you left behind. You will never be forgotten my friend, God bless

- I had the pleasure of working with Mark for quite some time at Canada Customs in Winnipeg. Mark was always a gentleman with a quick smile and a good sense of humour. He took great pride in his work as a Customs Inspector and was just an all around great guy to work with, he was always ready to give you a hand. Mark was well respected for his extensive Customs knowledge and experience and was a "go to guy" when you needed help with a technical question. Mark was very well liked by everyone and he will be missed.
My condolences to his family.
