MORRISON, Mark Stewart

September 5, 1958 – April 23, 2013

Mark Morrison – personal fitness trainer, influential hockey captain and coach, left winger known for his rocket slap shot, and the best dad a kid could ask for – passed away untimely on Tuesday, April 23.

Mark touched many different lives in many different ways; whether it be through the thirty-one years he spent with his high school sweetheart, his years of devotion to the skills development of young hockey players and father-like status to many of them growing up, his motivation he gave us in the gym that we didn’t like too much at the time, or his tendency to over-tighten our skates (to the point of numbness) when we were too young to tie our own.

A private service will be held to honor and remember a great man – please contact McInnis and Holloway (403-243-8200) for further details. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Mark Morrison, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH.

Offer Condolence for the family of MORRISON, Mark Stewart

    Although we never met Mark we feel that he was a friend of ours through our son Shane. He was considered by Shane as brother, as a person he could share his deepest thoughts with and enjoy the good times. Our deepest condolences and prayers to all of his family and friends.

    To Mark’s family,

    We were very shocked and upset to hear of Mark’s passing. You see we’d gotten to know him quite well these last months’ while he stayed in one of the apartment’s on my farm through the week. He was a likable, easy going and very positive fellow who’d persevered in his life to amongst his other accomplishments, become a personal trainer.

    Mark and I worked together every day and saw each other every night, often over the dinner table.

    When he first arrived his Mother had had a stroke and he’d spent several restless nights in her hospital room. He was thrilled when she recovered so well. Also, very proud of the fact that she was very fit; she swims several times a week and had been an Olympic skater in her youth. Mark was also so very proud of his son, who also excelled in sports and in whatever he puts his mind to.

    We worried and fussed at him when he didn’t feel well and were so happy for him when he got his new job at camp where he’d be able to go home to Calgary every few weeks to see his family. Mark was thrilled to start this job and very happy with many good things coming together in his life.

    As you can tell we became extremely fond of Mark as many people obviously have throughout his life. We send our sincere condolences to his family. You are all in our prayers.

    Kenneth Rhodenizer
