Obituary

MARK J. DERRY (published on September 12, 2011)



MARK J. DERRY Suddenly on September 7, 2011, Mark J. Derry passed away in the hospital with his family by his side. Mark is survived by his loving wife, Cheryl; son, Jonathan and daughter, Sara (Daniel); his mother, Irma; brothers, James (Lew), Vern (Mary); and sister, Carol (Karl), as well as, numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Mark was born February 1, 1958, and grew up in Winnipeg. After numerous career changes he became a long haul truck driver, and drove for the last 20 years. Mark loved life and each day was an adventure. The happiest day of his life was the day his precious children were born. Mark was happiest spending time with his children, camping, which he shared with Sara, and helping at Sledge hockey with Jonathan. He also enjoyed golfing, fishing and playing with his dogs, Tesha and Star. In recent years he rediscovered photography and a love of Mexico, where he spent time just this past March. Mark would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it, and even in death he will continue to give. Cremation has occurred and a celebration of his life has been planned for Tuesday, September 13, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street. Special thanks to the Winnipeg Police Services and the staff of Health Sciences Centre's emergency department and S.I.C.U., and the Transplant Manitoba staff, for their kindness and support during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mark's memory to Sledge Hockey Manitoba (825 Sherbrook St.) or the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society. We will always miss you Mark. CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586-8044
