July 30, 1958 – October 1, 2021
It is with heavy hearts and joy, that Mark sailed away into the clouds last Friday. He is finally free from ALS after 6 1/2 years.
He will be deeply missed by his wife Brenda, son Nicholas (Amanda) daughter Kristy (Adam Saunders) Maia, Brynlee, Zoey and Marcus.
There will be no service at Mark’s request.
When my sailing days are over,
And I sail the seas no more,
I shall build myself a refuge,
By the ocean’s murmuring shore.
When the tide comes rushing in,
I will contemplate my lifetime
With it virtues and its sins.
Where the azure of the heavens
Meets the undulating blue,
Where the sweeping,soaring seagull
Flies its endless quest for food.
It is there that I would rest,
When my work on earth is done,
At the endless blue horizon.
‘Neath the crimson, setting sun.
