Jun 5, 2018
It’s with great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Mark Harlow on June 5 2018. Survived by his mother Darlene, brothers Chris and Mike. Brother Danny and his fiancee Vanessa and their children Nevada, Lucas and Caleb. His nephew Bailey and niece Payton, grandmother Patricia, his little buddy Drake plus many aunts, cousins and beloved friends. He is predeceased by his grandfather George, grandmother Eve and father John.
Mark will forever be remembered for his infectious smile and outgoing personality that was immediately loved by anyone who met him. His love for the water where he felt at home
the most brought him back to the Island working on tug boats after spending a few years in Alberta operating cranes and working in northern Alberta.
His love for travel took him to many places creating memories and life long friends. This is truly one of the good ones taken from us way to early.
My family would like to thank all our friends and family for their support. We have amazing people surrounding us. We also like to send a special thank you to Nick Penarsky. Mark was very lucky to have you as a friend. You have been one of the pillars throughout this process and we can’t thank you enough.
There will be a celebration of life Saturday June 16 2018 from 12 – 5 pm in Ladysmith BC at the Amphitheatre down at transfer beach.
In memory of Mark we are creating a memory box. If you have any photos, items, or even a written story you have that involves Mark we encourage you to add it to the memory box.
I Will Hold You Up, by Danny Harlow
“I will hold you up my baby brother,
I will hold you for as long as you need,
I will hold you with every ounce of strength within me,
I will hold you up my baby brother,
I will hold you until you give me a sign, I will hold you until you tell me it’s time,
I will never drop you my baby brother, I will stand up strong,E
I will hold you until all the fight is gone,
When your ready to rest and it’s time to say good bye,E
Can you hold me up baby brother the pain will be to much to deny,
I will hold you up my baby brother, I will hold you until the day I die.”
