Mark was born February 4th, 1956 in Golden, BC. He lived on the family farm in the Blaeberry with his parents, Garth and Clara-Belle, and his three siblings, Leonard, Sue and Penny. He had a great love of farming, hunting and fishing. He always had wondrous luck when it came to getting the biggest catch.
Mark was born deaf, but that didn’t stop him from accomplishing many beautiful achievements in his life. He worked as a logger, operated CAT, worked in wood mills and as a butcher to support his family. He had a great sense of humour and smiled and laughed often. Mark met the love of his life, Lori Johnson, and was married for 25 years.
Mark is predeceased by his parents, Garth and Clara-Belle, as well as his wife, Lori Benson. He is survived by his three daughters, Kindra, Caitlyn and Sharelle, and 12 grandchildren.
