We Remember


May 28, 1950 — July 21, 2022

We are sad to announce that Mark passed away on Thursday, July 21, 2022, with his family by his side.  He fought a very valiant fight with esophageal cancer.

Mark will be forever remembered by his wife of 42 years, Sandy; his two daughters Lindsay (Kevan) Hickerson and Brittany; his first granddaughter Lillian; his mother Marguerite; his father-in-law Don; brothers and sisters-in-law Bill and Lorna Wilson, and Dan and Judy Rohl; as well as several nieces and nephews. Mark was predeceased by his father Eric and his mother-in-law Esther.

Mark was a lover of the great outdoors enjoying many camping, fishing, and boating adventures. He passed his love of nature and of travel on to his daughters. Mark made many friends and cherished them all dearly.

In lieu of flowers, we would ask that you consider making a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation or a charity of your choice in Mark’s name.

    Sandy I was devastated to hear about Mark when I came back to work today. I am sending you the biggest hug and healing vibes. You two are a wonderful couple and the support you have shown him over the months is what a true relationship is made of. He fought a very hard battle and was thrown many obstacles over his hospital stay. I am so happy he got to meet baby Lily and to see his smile when he talked about her or showed me her latest pictures was truly heart warming. I hope your heart is able to heal, although I’m sure Mark took a chunk of it with him as he was truly an amazing soul. Sending you so much love ❤️

      Thank you so much Jen! You took such good care of Mark, pushing him when needed, encouraging him always but especially taking the time in your busy shift to chat for a minute or two. We both felt valued and respected, you always answered our questions.
      Take care and enjoy every minute with your family ❤️ You are truly an earthly 😇
