OBITUARY

Mark Corwin WIEBE

January 1, 1969October 5, 2020

It is with great sorrow that we announce that Mark Wiebe, our beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed away unexpectedly on October 5, 2020 at age 51, while driving his motorcycle home from work in Vancouver where he lived. He loved riding motorcycles and thought nothing of taking long rides out to visit family even if only for a few hours. Mark will be missed for the joy and laughter he brought into the lives of all those who knew him.

A hard worker with great people skills, Mark worked at a variety of jobs over the years from construction to Cruise Director. His many interests outside of work included ballroom dancing and stand-up comedy. He was committed to investing in the lives of those around him and was an inspiration to many.

Mark was born in Neepawa, Manitoba, the youngest child of George and Nellie Wiebe. Besides his parents, Mark leaves behind his sister Laura, his brothers Daryl and Brent and a great many other loving family members and friends.

I got to know Mark when we both attended MBCI after moving to Winnipeg from rural Manitoba – some 36 years ago now. We hit it off right away and have been great friends ever since, including about a year when we were roommates in Winnipeg. Didn’t get to see him as much after he left the Peg but we connected whenever we could – either in Manitoba or BC. As has been said in so many other comments, he was just the kindest and ‘funnest’ guy. I was lucky enough to go on a couple road trips with Mark to Chicago and California when we were late teenagers and I’ll always remember those. Our adventures usually centered around cars, motorcycles, finding the city’s best burger and dreaming up what future adventures to get into. The Big Guy has influenced my life in so many ways – most significantly was how he encouraged me to pick up the phone some 29 years ago to call the young lady who would become my wife. I am so sad to lose him and send my deepest sympathies to the family and friends everywhere.

I met Mark back in 2011 when he was working at the Surrey Memorial Project. One day I heard "Hightower" being called on the radio and since that day Mark has always been Hightower to me. - for a long time I didn't even know his real name! After Surrey Memorial he and I continued to work together up until a few months ago. Everyday on site he would have a smile on face and he was always ready to help out with any task that needed to get done.

I'll never forget his love of Splitz burger on Main St after work on pay day and the time someone bought him a White Russian because when he let his hair down after work he looked like "the dude"

I'm going to miss seeing the big guy on site.

RIP my friend.

I went to MBCI with Mark. I remember an extremely tall, lanky, kid who was so kind, and also hilarious! He made everyone feel at ease.
I am so very sorry for the loss of your beloved son, and brother.

Mark and I had known each other for 24 years, small town farm boys thrown together in the big city. It was not to long before we could finish each others sentences. A kindred soul, he truly had a zest for life that few of us could match or will see again. Larger than life when in "full tilt boggie" mode... Mark also had a depth of character and eloquence that enhanced our lives with his immense range in kindness, compassion, and empathy. Today, I have a hole in my heart that I can only hope will be healed with fond memories of our times spent together, the colorful stories of his adventures, and the echoes of his boisterous laughter as it carries across the room like a soothing wave of joy.

I met Mark in Tango lessons; I enjoyed dancing with Mark because he was consistently compassionate & humble, and, a very joyful dancer.

To all of Mark's loved ones, I am very sorry for your immense loss.

I feel so sad and shocked to hear of Mark’s passing. I met him at Dancing for Dessert and had the pleasure of dancing with him many times in group classes. He was such an upbeat, positive person. He was always smiling and very friendly. He will be greatly missed.

Mark was a special guy who always had us laughing and never had a bad word to say about anybody. I met Mark at Dancing For Dessert and want to add how intelligent and witty he was. As an instructor, he would often challenge us for a better explanation of a step or provide a different way of looking at a figure or set of steps. I loved that about him. This is a huge loss and I will miss him!

I have no words, my deepest condolences to marks family and friends.

I did not know Mark well, however I did dance with him at dancing for dessert. He was always so kind and patient. I really enjoyed learning the cha cha and salsa with him. I’m sure he is up there dancing away looking down on all of us.
