It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mark Douglas Disney, on Sunday, March 6, 2022, at the age of 62 years. He was born on August 23, 1959, in Gimli, MB, to Bill and Shirley (nee Anderson) Disney. Mark married the love of his life, Laurie Linthicum, on June 8, 1985. They were blessed with four children, Leah, Owen, Nolan, and Kristina. They raised their family on their farm near Killdeer, where Mark taught them the value of a strong work ethic. He worked for Dave Mihalicz, K & D Enterprises LTD, was the RM Grader Operator for a time, and also ran a fencing crew. Mark and Laurie later purchased a farm up north, where he enjoyed planting different crops. He was an innovative farmer and rancher, always researching and implementing new ideas. Mark was an outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, boating, and was an excellent fisherman. He had a strong connection with his community and believed in the value of community spirit. Mark enjoyed having coffee with the neighbours and playing cards with friends. He especially enjoyed playing poker, crib, and whist, and took winning seriously. Mark was firm in his beliefs and fought for what he believed in. Family meant everything to Mark, and he embraced becoming a grandpa. Mark showed his love through his actions and was generous, loyal, and thoughtful. He will be remembered always by his family and friends. Till we meet again.
