He was a dedicated worker and a loving person to his family and friends. Mark, you will be greatly missed and will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

    My deepest condolences for your loss. Mark and I met in high school and while we weren’t close friends, we saw each other quite a bit over the years in group gatherings, and he was always fun to be around. He would always greet me with a smile and I always enjoyed being around him–I only wish I could have done it more. He was a great person and I’ll miss him.

  29. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to everyone in MJ’s family. What an incredible loss and I am totally in shock right now having just received the news of his untimely passing! MJ and I became great friends through our years of attending business networking dinners together. I cannot forget the countless times he insisted on driving me home after the dinners, especially during the cold winters. I will always remember his quick wit and engaging personality, and his selfless dedication to both his business clients and his friends. The world’s a sadder place without your cheery presence, MJ! You will be sorely missed by everyone you left behind.

  30. Mark and I went to high school together. We’ve been buddies for 20 years, poker bros for 15. He was MC at my wedding. I will be forever saddened not to see that smirk when he takes my money or to hear his “Tony Copp, what’s shakin’ brother” when I called him up. Mark J, I love you and you will be missed. May all of us get through the loss of one of the kindest souls I have ever known, my love an prayers go out to his family and all of his friends.

    One day at my door in Canyon Meadows this young capable, aggressive and confident man shows up selling financial investments and it is Mark J. Popp. I immediately liked and respected him and invested with him. Over time I got to know the person and really admired the man. I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of this young, capable and fine person. Mark J Popp impressed me and I was lucky to have met him. So sorry to hear of his loss! PS. He never told me what the J stood for? I felt he had really character always introducing himself as Mark J.

  50. Mark was my best friend from grades 6 to 9. He had a great affect on my life and we’d continue to chat over the years. Last year I visited Calgary and he took me out for drinks. We always got along and could speak frankly. He made me feel better about my troubles, ironically. I feel a deep sense of loss, surprise, and numbness.

    My condolences.
