PACKER, Mark 1926 to 2015 Born on October 19, 1926 in Montreal, PQ, Mark passed away peacefully on August 10, 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario. Passionately devoted for more than 60 years to his loving wife, Ede. Survived by his son, Richard (Tamar) and grandsons Michael and Jeffrey. Mark defined himself as a business man par excellence.
