    To Marie, Kimberly, Natalie, Family Members & Friends,
    The members of the Canadian Forces Supplementary Radio (SUPRAD) System Oldtimers Association were saddened by the news of Mark’s 16 November 2021 passing. Sorry that we did not receive his obituary sooner than now. Mark was a dedicated and loyal member of the military, and he proudly served his country for 35 years.. During his distinguished career in the Air Force, he became a good friend to many. All those who had the privilege of serving with Mark, will forever remember all of the enjoyable times that were shared. Please know that as members of your extended military family, you will be kept in our thoughts and prayers.
    ‘Friends Forever’
