Mark Forster

March 24, 1951 - March 12, 2013


Mark passed away peacefully surrounded by the love and prayers of his family. Loving husband and best friend to Gina (Novielli) fo 30 years. Beloved and devoted father to Martina, who he was so very proud of. She was “his pride and joy” and always brought a smile to his face. Cherished son of Bernadette Forster (the late Dennis). Beloved brother of Chris (Marie),  Cynthia (Rob), Sandra (Phil), Joseph (Ellen), Donna (Joe), Denise (Wayne) and Gerrard ( Sylvie). Much loved brother in law to Pasqua/Severino, Sandra, Anna/Jim and Nikki/Preston. Mark will be greatly missed by his friends and family and by his many nieces and nephews. All who knew Mark appreciated his passionate love of family, music and the world around him. He cared deeply about the environment and about leaving a better world for future generations.

For those wishing, donations may be made to the B.C. Cancer Foundation in his memory.

As Mark would say “See you later” not goodbye.
