MALY, Mark George Maly - September 18th, 1940 - July 3rd, 2021
Passed away at Lakeridge Health Center on Saturday July 3, 2021 in his 81st year from complications after a recent fall.
Mark was the dedicated and loving husband of Joan Maly for 59 years.
Mark was predeceased by his parents Michael and Annie Maly, his infant son Mark Anthony, and his sister and brother-in-law Mary and Albert Smelko.
Steadfast and loving father of Kim (Paul) of Niagara Falls and Curt (Barbara) of London. Extremely proud Dzedo of Michael and Laura and dear brother of Anne Anderson (John).
Born in Malonton Manitoba, Mark’s family relocated to Oshawa when he was a toddler, and he remained a life-long resident of the community.
After graduating from York University, Mark worked at General Motors in the material handling office but made his career as a well-known legal conveyancer in the Durham Region and surrounding area.
Generous with his time, Mark volunteered at St. Gregory’s Church, St. Vincent’s kitchen, Paul Dwyer High School, and many other worthy causes.
Mark enjoyed all sports, playing football and baseball in his early years and later playing rugby “the gentleman’s game”, basketball with the “Monday Knight’s” and he completed several grueling Gatineau 55 cross country ski World Loppets of 35 to 50 kms.
He was always ready for a game of bridge with friends and family including any accompanying beverages. Mark loved maintaining his lawn and gardens at his home and passionately enjoyed the hard work that went along with cottage ownership.
Mark, a godfather to Shane, Patrick, and Sean, was an amazing man in every way who will be missed and always remembered by his family, friends, nieces, nephews and the entire “Brady Bunch”.
Due to covid restrictions, a private mass will be held at St. Gregory the Great Roman Catholic Church.
Memorial donations can be made in Mark’s name to Lakeridge Health or a CHARITY of your choice.
