Wing Sheung (Kent) Mark
November 5, 1926 - February 15, 2013
Kent Mark passed away on Friday, February 15, 2013 at Royal University Hospital. He was born on November 5, 1926, the youngest of four children. He was predeceased by his father Gim Hand and his mother Toy Jean, two older brothers and one sister. Kent is survived by his wife Yin Ting Liu, son Phillip (Elaine) and grandson Jordan of Saskatoon, his daughter Tilly (Sam) and grandchildren Victoria, Tyler and Ian of New York City, as well as numerous nephews and nieces. Many people knew him as "Sifu" from Kent's Tai Chi Centre in which he taught hundreds of students for over thirty years, or from his business, Mark Wing's Noodle Manufacturing. Born in China, he immigrated to Canada in the '50's to Wakaw where he and his father ran a restaurant. Trained as a Barber, he spent a short time in Winnipeg, but later moved to Saskatoon where he opened several businesses, including a barbershop, beauty salon, restaurant and import shop. Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit and a dare, he opened up and operated Mark Wing's Noodle Manufacturing until his recent retirement. In between all of this he continuously taught Tai Chi which was his lifelong passion. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at RUH (6219) for all their wonderful care. The Funeral Service will be held at the chapel of the Saskatoon Funeral Home, 338 4th Ave. N. on Thursday, February 21 at 1:30 p.m. Interment will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery in the new Chinese section immediately following the service. Condolences may be sent to Arrangements are entrusted to SASKATOON FUNERAL HOME, 244-5577.
