HALPERN, Mark - On Monday evening, September 26, 2022 at the too young age of 54, Mark passed away at home surrounded by his family and closest friends.

He will be warmly remembered by Aunt Ray and Uncle Ernie, his cousins, and a legion of devoted friends, and colleagues.
Ambitious and determined to succeed, from modest beginnings in Pickering flea market while still in university, he built a successful chain of retail stores...Kitchen Stuff Plus. He was a retailer extraordinaire who thrived on the challenges of his business.
The family would also acknowledge the loving care provided by Jennifer de Campo and nurse Margaret Mensah.
