SCHONFELD – Markus “Mark” Andrew

January 9, 1962 – June 14, 2011

Markus “Mark” Andrew Schonfeld beloved husband of Maggie of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, June 14, 2011 at the age of 49 years.

Mark was born in Calgary and had a lengthy career as a heavy duty mechanic, most recently at Bison Transport. Throughout his career, Mark developed many close friendships. Mark enjoyed the simple things in life, like being at home, joking around, watching wrestling and taking road trips with his family and long rides on his motorcycle. Mark was a devoted Dad who took great pride in his boys. He also loved his Bulldog Betty. He will be remembered for his off colour humour which he openly shared with everyone. He was deeply loved and will be remembered always.

Besides his loving wife Maggie, Mark is survived by two sons Maclane and Mason; mother Ruth; brother David; mother-in-law Norma; and many extended family members.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Dear Maggie, Mac and Mason:

    I was so sad to hear of Mark’s death. It is such a terrible tragedy to lose someone you love and who has touched so many people. Mark always had an easy smile and a jovial laugh. His humour, although not always appropriate, was always hilariously funny and always had everyone in stitches. Even though we haven’t spent time together recently, there will be an empty space in my life and I will miss Mark very much!

    My thoughts are with all of you.

    Love,

    Sandy Forbes

    Dear Maggie, boys and family,

    I worked with Mark at Bison Transport. I am deeply saddened to hear of Mark’s death. I always looked forward to seeing Mark and running the shift with him. He was so tenderhearted and wanted to be able to help everyone. Often, I tried to run interferance so he wouldn’t load himself up too much. He always asked me how things were in my life and was genuinely interested. I will miss him.

    My prayers are with you and your family in this time of grief.

    Dear Margaret, boys and family,

    We were deeply saddened to hear of Mark’s passing. He was such a thoughtful person who popped in several times last summer to visit when Blair was laid up. And for all the years we knew Mark we never met anyone else with such a unique sense of humour; a really authentic person who knew how to enjoy what he had in life and who we shall miss.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all,

    Susan and Blair

    I was so shocked to read (Bison Memo) about Mark’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I thought the first time I met Mark, that he had such a great ‘bedside’ manner, he should have been a doctor, then thought, he is, he’s a truck doctor. He was always very kind, patient, and apologetic. I will miss him a lot and think about him every time I enter the repair shop.
