Peacefully and surrounded by loved ones, after a fierce battle with cancer, Mark passed away on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at the age of 62. Mark passed away the same way he lived life - with respect and dignity. Much loved husband of Jill (nee Gretsinger) for 27 years. He will be sadly missed by daughter Jennifer and son Jason (Amanda-Lynn). Papa will always be in the heart of his grandson Jack, whom Mark cherished and adored. Mark is survived by siblings Christine (Mike) Lentz, Tom (Robin) Anderson, Terry, (Ivan) Ross, Ron (Holly) Anderson and Wayne Anderson, as well as brother-in-law Ric (Lori) Gretsinger. He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews, as well as his mother-in-law Marion. Mark is predeceased by father Tom and mother Betty. Mark always lived life with a good sense of humour and a lot of love. Mark was an avid Boston Bruins fan, and was recently given the privilege to wear the Boston Stanley Cup ring, thanks to his loving nephew Larry and loving niece Jenny. Mark had a huge heart for animals and is already missed by his furbabies Princess, Cooper and Tauny. Mark was an avid reader who loved darts and horseshoes. His outside work was important to him, but nothing more so than his prized Koi fish pond. Mark worked for 31 years at ITT Aimco and his following years at Rich Products of Canada Ltd. We would like to thank his ITT Aimco brothers and Rich's work family for such amazing love and support. Huge thanks to the Dingman & Dennis families, as well as Judy Ryan, for always being by our sides and being willing to help whenever needed. Our love for you knows no bounds.

Our condolences to the Anderson family. I watched the live stream online with nephew Larry and his family. Very nicely done. I know it meant a lot to Larry to see it. I did not know Mark myself but he sounds like a caring funny loving person and I do know that he will be missed by many. Judy and Al Breadner
