I learned Luk Tung Kuen exercises years ago from Mark in Vermont Square park. He was a good leader and always so kind and cheerful. Our group is still doing the exercises under the leadership of his wife, Silver who is also a good leader. We still get together every morning at 8:30 and although Mark has not been able to be with us for the last several years, we still remember him with great fondness.
I and our whole exercise group are very sad to hear of his death. Our thoughts and prayers are with Silver and the whole family.
In deepest sympathy. Rita and Brian
Sending deepest sympathy to Silver and all the other members of Ying Mark's family. I will always remember his kind guidance and good humour in our exercises in Vermont Square Park. He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ying's loved ones.
As a young man, Ying was a hard working chef at the Belleville restaurant run by my grandfather and the Tom partners for a number of years. Because older"brother" Ying's father, Mr. Mark, was a good friend of my grandfather, we were even closer friends and enjoyed each other's company. With a kind and soft voice, he treated me like a young brother and often gave me advice to be nice to people and greet elders with a smile. When his oldest son, John, was quite young, his family moved to Toronto. For a number of years we lost contact. However, by chance as I was driving to work one day, I saw the sign of brother Ying's restaurant. And that was in 1967. For a number of years Ying and Ngan Nor worked extremely hard and successfully so in their restaurant on Bathurst St., a few stores from the corner of Dupont St. and only a minute or two walk from their home. It was a blessing that we got back in touch with each other again.
My wife, Judy, and I will truly miss this close friend of ours. Brother Ying, you will always be in the memories of your family members, relatives and friends.
With our affection and deepest condolences,
Harry and Judy Tom 譚文能夫婦
I wish to express my deepest sympathies to the Mark family on the passing of Mr. Ying Mark.
I was saddened to hear of Mr. Mark's passing when I was messaging John (his oldest son) if he was at the hospital as I knew his dad was being treated there.
You will be sorely missed by your family and friends and all those lives you enriched over your lifetime.
Rest in peace and may god bless you!
