SMITH, Mark Allen

It is with broken hearts and thousands of treasured memories we say aloha to Mark who was born January 2, 1958. Mark passed away suddenly on April 22, 2022, at the age of 64 at Windsor Regional Hospital with the love of his life by his side.

Mark was the dear son of the late Kenneth (2004) and Margaret (1997) Smith of Kingsville. Loving and devoted husband of Ruth (nee Halbgewachs). Treasured brother of Rose (Robert) Brown, Carole (Bruce) Boyd, Ruth Weller (Roger Kemp), Terry Smith (Juli), the late Daniel Smith (2005) (Debbie) and Carl Smith (1983). Mark will also be dearly missed by his extended family Joan, Diane and Paul Halbgewachs, and Gayle Steptoe. He has a special place in the hearts of many nephews, nieces and his aunt.

Mark enjoyed four years of retirement and loved every minute of it! He was a dedicated employee of TRQSS for 26 years. Mark enjoyed traveling the world with his wife Ruth, cooking and creating surprises for his loved ones. He had the ability to make people laugh and loved learning about and discussing history and politics. For the past two years he volunteered at the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Food Bank in Harrow and took great care to ensure the clients got special items.

Mark’s family would like to extend their thanks to EMS and Emergency Department staff of Windsor Regional Hospital (Ouellette Campus) for their care and compassion.

A private family graveside service will take place at Graceland Cemetery, Olinda.
