On Monday, March 4th, 2024 at the age of 69, Mark Shurvin, our beloved dad and Grampa passed away unexpectedly. Predeceased by his parents Robert and May and his brother Stephen. Survived by his brother John and sister Colleen. Mark has left behind his four children Jamie (Emily), Michael, Nicole (Dave) and Jessica (Ryan) as well as his six grandchildren Spencer, Reese, Clara, Ben, Callum and Jack and his long-time friend and the mother of his children, Michele. A lifelong resident of Greensville, he was a pillar in his community. A former town councillor and Mayor of Flamborough, Chairman of the Hamilton Conservation Authority and President and honorary life director of the Rockton Fair. He held a certificate in arbitration and mediation from the University of Toronto and worked in adjudication and management for the Ontario Ministry of Labour for 28 years, retiring just 5 years ago. Ahead of his time, he was passionate about the environment, he was inclusive and he was a firm believer in a publicly funded system in which everyone has access to quality health care and education, always looking out for the greater good of society. It was his lifelong dream to own a farm and that dream came true in 2004. He was in his element driving a tractor, tending to the animals and just being on the farm. He was one of a kind, he taught us so much, but above all of this, he was our dad, our Grampa and our friend and we will miss him terribly. Friends may pay their respects at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St. Dundas, on Tuesday, March 12th from 2 – 4 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m. Funeral service will take place at Christ Church Flamborough, 92 Highway 8, Dundas, on Wednesday, March 13th at 11 a.m. with reception to follow at Rockton Fairgrounds, 812 Old Highway 8, Rockton. If desired, donations can be made to the Hamilton Conservation Foundation.
