Passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Tuesday 6 February 2024, after living with Motor Neuron Disease. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by his daughter Alex, sister Linda, cousin Emily, and the many friends both near and far, who he touched with his quirky character, love for art, literature, geopolitics, history, culture, food, music and life itself.
Family and friends are invited to remember Mark and celebrate his life as a public school teacher, world traveler, hippie, awesome skier, country-bloke and dedicated Dad at the Lotus Pavilion at Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium on Thursday 15th February at 1pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome in Mark’s honour, to causes he felt strongly about during his life:
United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East
Australian Conservation Foundation
The Ocean Cleanup
