It is with heavy hearts we mourn the passing of Mark Jonathon Mahovlic, who leaves his dear parents, Jon and Mona, and loving sister, Mara. He passed in his sleep the morning of February 7, 2014 and is now in peace.
Born in Vancouver, September 21, 1991, Mark grew up in Cranbrook and graduated from Mount Baker Secondary School in 2009. In the fall of 2010 he moved to Calgary to pursue a Bachelor of Computer Information Systems at Mount Royal University. Making friends wherever he went, Mark’s bright smile and open heart were traits that described him best.
A young man with a wide variety of skills, Mark found his passion in hockey, golf, drafting and woodwork, computers and technology at a young age and excelled; his favourite pass-time was designing his dream golf course. A gentle giant, Mark was always there for people who needed a friend or helping hand.
Mark is survived by his parents, Jon and Mona Mahovlic, sister Mara Mahovlic, along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A Celebration Of Mark’s Life will be held at The Heritage Inn and Convention Centre on Saturday, February 15 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. An informal ceremony will start at 1:00 pm.
A scholarship program has been set up. In lieu of flowers we ask those wishing to make a donation in Mark’s memory to do so to the: Mark Mahovlic Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Cranbrook & District Community Foundation, PO Box 242, Cranbrook, BC, V1C 4H8.
