It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Mark Teague on June 3, 2021 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
In addition to the Teague family, Mark will be lovingly missed by his parents, Sharyl (Carmichael) & Bob Eaglesham; step brother & sister Tyler (Hayley) and Robyn (Matt); grandmother Loretta Carmichael; aunts and uncles Brenda (Doug), Drew (Jodi) and cousins; Joshua, Cara, Emma and Sarah. He is predeceased by his father John Teague, and grandparents Jack Carmichael, Jack and Jean Teague.
Mark was born on June 9, 1989, and grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He received his Culinary Arts Diploma from Red River College in 2008. Mark was passionate about the culinary world and worked with many skilled Winnipeg chefs at St. Charles Country Club, Sydney’s at the Forks, The Gates, and Enoteca before obtaining his Red Seal Chef designation. Moving in another direction, Mark earned his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in English from the University of Winnipeg in 2020 and was accepted to the University of Edinburgh to pursue a master’s degree.
While attending university, Mark worked for Bison Books learning to appreciate the fine appraisal of old and rare books from owner and friend Aimie. He also worked at Two Ten Recovery on Maryland supporting the efforts of those transitioning from addiction. Thank you to friends at First Step AA and specifically to Duncan for consistent support during Mark’s 5 years of sobriety.
Following his Grampa Carmichael’s footsteps, Mark joined the Ancient Landmark #3 Masonic Lodge in 2019. There was a special place in Mark’s heart for his St. James Presbyterian Church family, especially fond camp memories. Most of all he enjoyed rock music, classic books, journaling his life and being with good friends – specifically Andrew, Scott, and Mike.
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son! (Poem “IF” by Rudyard Kipling)
Celebration of Life will be arranged. Donations may be made to Two Ten Recovery Inc. (www.twotenrecoveryinc).
