Mark married the love of his life, Nicky, in Jamaica, on April 16, 1989. In 1997, they became the proud parents of their daughter, Cheyenne. She was always the apple of her Daddy's eye . Mark's greatest joy came from spending time with his family, enjoying their backyard and swimming pool, and relaxing with a bottle of Corona beer. Mark loved winter vacations with his family and this year returned to Jamaica with Nicky and Cheyenne to visit the place they were married. He also enjoyed camping and spending time driving around the east ridge near Piney. Mark loved playing the drums, golfing and watching the Vikings and the Blue Jays. Mark always had a special place in his heart for his nieces and nephews. They loved him dearly even with all of his teasing. Cremation has taken place.
