March 23, 1975 - May 21, 2020

It is with great sadness that we share the unexpected passing of Mark by heart attack.
Mark will be lovingly remembered by his parents, Myrna and Rae, brother Ryan, sister Erika (Dan) and nephews and niece, Reese, Riley and Keira. He is also remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Mark spent his childhood in Brandon and as a little boy could always be found playing with his Hot Wheels, LEGO and building things. He lived in a newer development and hours would be spent with his brother and sister riding their bikes and exploring. Family vacations were spent camping at the lake and spending time at his grandparents in Hadashville. His love for heavy metal bands continued to present day and he attended many concerts whenever his bands toured through town.
Mark spent his adult life in St James. He attended Westwood Collegiate and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Winnipeg. He spent many years working for Anderson Orthopedics and more recently at Cavalier Candies in the Exchange. He loved caring for animals his whole life and his two cats, Luna and Mia, will now live with Mark's niece and nephews. He would be happy that the cats have gone to a loud and lively house.
We were proud of how Mark continued day by day to build upon his successes. Change takes great strength.
The family wishes to thank his co-workers for quickly reacting, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedics Service and the staff of the St. Boniface Hospital Acute Cardiac Care Unit and the Palliative Care Unit for their compassion shown to Mark and the family during that difficult time.
A private ceremony will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

  • Miss you so much bro - Posted by: Kenny (Co worker) on: Jun 02, 2020

  • Terribly sorry for your loss...Mark...Mark was a great guy.He would always come to work and i would keep pushing him to stick it out at work, even if it wasn't much, it was something for the time being. We would be the last 2 in our Kitchen to close and by the time it was down to just us, he'd start off with can we turn down the radio now? We talked about almost everything that we could think of, from curling ( we used the mop bucket lol) to shared life experiences. The second last day before his turn...I made him laugh so loud over another co-workers small ears, he burst into laughter with the likes. I've never seen before..that was such a great day, like many before that. When I first met Mark we actually were in a work group program..and when he showed up into the kitchen the day after I started..he was looking at me with a goofy smile and I was like..what? He reminded me of the work group program that we were in, Because I had told the group I got hired onto Cavalier Candies and he took my advice and applied. At first I didn't know what to make of him. I was new and didn't know him from a whole in the ground. But over the time we spent working together in that kitchen..I looked forward to closing the kitchen it's rather lonely not having my curling buddy or someone to talk to. He's in God's Hands now..and resting in peace. Again..sorry for you loss Myrna and Rae, brother Ryan, sister Erika (Dan) and nephews and niece, Reese, Riley and Keira. He is also remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Thoughts of him daily. - Posted by: Clayton (friend/co-worker) on: Jun 02, 2020

  • So sorry for your sudden loss. Having only met him 2 or 3 times, he seemed like a very kind, young man. His memory will always live on in your hearts. - Posted by: Marguerite Shea (Erika's mother-in-law) on: May 31, 2020

  • I was so sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. I met Mark when he was employed at the Terraces of Tuxedo which is about 20 years ago. Although life changes in time and people walk down different paths, I will always remember Mark’s friendly disposition and infectious smile. We often would chit chat about things and he would always be kind and helpful whenever needed. My sincere condolences to Myrna, Rae and family. May you have comfort knowing that Mark will live on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to know him. - Posted by: Jeannie Skawronyk (Acquaintance ) on: May 30, 2020
