Mark was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast and his love for the outdoors and Chevrolet's were present from an early age. He honoured that love by working as a Park Ranger in Princess Louisa Inlet for a few years before settling in at Sunshine GM, (now Haley GM) for the past 28 years, where he developed many long-term customers and trusted friendships. Mark chose to lead a quiet and simple life and his happiest days were filled with fishing, hunting, camping and spending time with his family.
Mark is survived by his two children Katie and Sarah Rowland, his granddaughter Tova, his mother Joan Rowland, his brothers Blair (Valerie), Craig (Ann), Brent, his sister Dawn and many nieces and nephews. Mark is predeceased by his brother Lance, his father Stan and his niece Shelby.
No arrangements have been made for a Celebration of Life at this time but in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Park's Enhancement Fund in Mark's honour.
