He also leaves behind his brother, H. Randy Park, brothers-in law; Bill Baker (Alice) and Tom Baker (Judy), and sister-in law Patti Baker. He was predeceased by his sister, Marlene Clancy.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I was a student of Mr. Park's, graduating from the Mechanical Engineering Technology program at RRC in 1996. I always looked forward to Mr. Park's class, as he always had an interesting story to go along with his lesson! Mr. Park's teachings definitely had an influence on my career, as it began in metallurgy and materials sciences. We kept in touch after RRC, through the Manitoba Chapter of ASM where Mr. Park was very involved. Thanks for the memories! - Posted by: Dave Kryschuk (former student) on: May 24, 2014
