  10. Mrs. Lobzun, Tim,Terry ,Sandra & families
    I was shocked to hear of Mark’s passing. Although we hadn’t spoken for many years, it sure brought back a lot of memories. From sunburns from floating down Two Creeks aboard the camper top to getting caught throwing snowballs at Mr. Plato’s window. Some of the shenanigans we did get into. Mark taught me how to drive his Willy’s jeep when the provincial park was only trails. Remembering all the years spent as boy scouts going on hikes and camp outs in our make shift tents. High school days & hitchhiking to the Vogue on Sunday nights wondering if we would ever get a ride home! I don’t think wearing army jackets and old felt hats would lower our chances any. Even though we hadn’t seen each other for decades I still feel that we were friends, so tonight I will raise a glass and toast to you Lager
    Rest In Peace Old Pal…..Hoss

  11. To Rita and the entire. Lobzun family. The boys took a bit of Wheatley with them wherever they travelled and left a bit of its Spirit . Always friendly like Norm and Rita and looking and recording their adventures. Each boy and daughter unique in their own way. Leaving a bit of Wheatley enriched the places they visited and adventures they took. RIP Mark thanks for the memories. Janet and Bill Derbyshire

  12. Dear Rita, Tim Terry and Sandra…I am so saddened to hear of Mark’s passing. Growing up on Hillcrest with Mark, in Wheatley, and also being a member of the Euchre Club clan, there are many life experiences that were shared and memories to be held onto. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this time. Roger and Cheryl Reid

  13. I’m sad to hear of Mark’s passing. He and I shared a room at Vancouver General Hospital in December 2019, where we would discuss life, and death, and plans for recovery and our futures. I had been wondering what happened to him, especially after trying to phone him post-discharge. I’m glad he went back to Ontario to be with his family.
