Mark was a gentle giant, the most loving, caring friend, son to Carol and Ian, and big brother to Debbie and David. He was dad to Kieran, Jessica, Rebecca and Hannah and husband to me, Gayle. Mark had a wicked sense of humour, he loved playing pranks on his friends, although you’d have to ask them if they loved it! He used to play in pool, darts and snooker teams in his younger days and was the life and soul of the party, never being shy of singing when it was karaoke.
After medically retiring from being an electrician, his children and I became his focus, we were very lucky to have him. He was a truly attentive father and nothing made him happier than Saturday dinners with all of us together.
