December 10, 1944 – February 20, 2022
On Sunday, February 20, 2022, at home in Nobleton, with his wife by his side, after several years of health challenges.
Beloved husband and soulmate of Hazel (nee Robinson) for 50 years. Cherished father of Heidi (Jason) and Monika (Frank). Adoring Papa to Sarah, Jayme, Luca, Brianne, Nolan and Cordelia. Beloved brother of Bruno (Maria). Predeceased by his youngest daughter Andrea and his brother Peter (Astrid).
Markus was born in Baselland, Switzerland in 1944. He came to Canada when he was 21 on a travel adventure for a year, met Hazel in a grocery store and then made their life together in Canada. Hazel, like all of us, was captured by his engaging smile and that twinkle in his eyes.
A passionate gardener, fisherman, cigar lover and discovered later in life, an unbelievable metal furniture designer. His love for life and his family and his unwavering positive outlook will be carried on through everyone who loved him. He taught each of us to live our lives with optimism, gratitude & dignity and to never complain.
Markus will be dearly missed by his extended family and friends who loved him so much both here in Canada and in Switzerland.
Visitation will be held at Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy. 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Wednesday, February 23rd between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, February 24th at Sacred Heart Parish located at 14485 Jane Street in King City.
