From our family, thank-you to everyone who attended Mark's service and left such kind and loving messages in the guestbook.
Mark's friends created a Spotify playlist in his honour:
He would have loved that.
And here is a link to a video of the service:

Mark left us suddenly on September 12, 2022, at the age of 50. He is survived by his parents, Gertrud & Balbir Gambhir; his brother, Robin Gambhir; his sister-in-law, Maureen Yorke and their three children Hannah Yorke Gambhir, Madeleine Yorke Gambhir and Matthew Yorke Gambhir. Mark will be remembered as being thoughtful, genuine, and loyal. He had an incredible memory for detail, an affinity for nostalgia and tradition, a passion for music and popular culture, and a mischievous sense of humour. He was profoundly loved by his community, and would undoubtedly be described by all who knew him as the kindest person in the room. He was truly the best of us.
Mark attended York Montessori, Ridley College, and Carleton University. Upon leaving Carleton, he joined the family’s wholesale gem business, where he worked alongside his parents and brother for over twenty-five years. This career afforded him a lot of international travel, and over the years he traveled to Thailand, India, Israel, China and Hong Kong.
Mark will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
There will be a service at the Danish Lutheran Church, 72 Finch Avenue West in North York on Friday September 23rd at 11:30 AM. This will be followed by food and light refreshments at the church.
Masks are required in the church and optional in the church hall where food will be served after the service.The church also has space with picnic benches outside. There will be masks available if you don't have one.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice. Alternatively, his family and schoolmates will be arranging a memorial for Mark on the Ridley campus, and donations can eventually be made to that. Details forthcoming.
