Fort Langley, BC; Dalhousie University, 1975; family medicine. Died Feb. 8, 2020, aged 70. Survived by his wife Melanie and 2 sons. “In 1979 Mark was offered a temporary locum position at the Fort Family Practice in Fort Langley. He came as a young, adventuresome and enthusiastic doctor, and within a short time was invited to join the practice permanently. It was a perfect fit for him. While managing his practice Mark also worked in the Emergency Department at Langley Memorial Hospital and helped establish its Department of Family Practice. His patients knew him to be straightforward and thorough, but above all they knew he cared for them on a personal level — they were his friends. Mark remained a committed and dedicated full-practice family doctor in Fort Langley for 40 years until his illness forced him to retire in 2019.”
