Mark passed away on July 8, 2023 at Vancouver General Hospital surrounded by friends, family and Keisha, after holding out as long as he could against cancer.

Mark was born in May of 1970 in Salmon Arm,BC. He was an active member of the Vancouver Eastside Vineyard Church, where he loved helping to cook meals and holiday dinners for his community. Since 2010, Mark’s life was filled with love for his dog Keisha, who accompanied him everywhere he went. You wouldn’t see Mark without Keisha.

Mark is survived by his daughter Andrea and her husband David; his grandson Luca; his brother Scott Perry and his wife Brandy; his sister Rae and her husband Brad; his sister Shannon and her husband David; and his beloved dog Keisha. Mark was preceded in death by his adoptive parents, Marliss and Gordon Perry. 

Mark requested in lieu of a service, please donate to an animal rescue of your choice in honour his love for animals and Keisha.

    Mark was an amazing, passionate individual who, paradoxically, was usually quiet and focused. A listener and a see-er, as well as a good storyteller. His interests were vaeiwd but animals topped thwm all, and his dog Keisha topped all other animals. It was a priveledge to know Mark and share a part of his life in Vancouver.
