I got your site info from the WWHS 69 comm. Someone already put my brother on the deceased list but without specific info. Mark was living on Vancouver Island in Cherry Point, BC, Canada with his wife of 10 years and his 2 much loved dogs. He built by himself the house he and Jo lived in on a beautiful piece of land that overlooked Cowichan Bay and Salt Spring Island. His death at such a early age was a shock to his many friends and family.

Mark Smith was so kind and considerate to me. My memory of him goes as far back as early elementary school. We lived a few blocks from each other so we tended to walk the same way home. One day, the bully of the class (Paul Huddleston) punched me at school and made my cry. Mark, knowing I had to walk past this guy's street to get home, walked with me for a while until I got over being scared. I never asked, he just did this. He was a wonderful, gentle guy. Rest in peace, Mark.
