Roberts, Mark Todd, age 55, passed away suddenly on September 20, 2019 while working in Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia.
Born in Scarborough, Ontario, but raised in Liverpool, NS, he was the son of Donna and the late Roy Roberts.
Mark found his dream job when he joined the Nova Scotia Salmon Association in the fall of 2017 where he worked as a fisheries technician. He was deeply committed to his job and he took great pride in contributing to the restoration of rivers and streams. His co-workers enjoyed the time with Mark because of his always happy attitude and the endless supply of songs he would sing for the crew. Mark was also committed to learning and enthusiastically completed certification to his career, obtaining his university degree in Bachelor of Engineering Technology, Environmental Studies from the Cape Breton University. Mark has always been passionate about the outdoors. He loved to camp and participate in the community gardens in Liverpool and Sheet Harbour. He lived in Sheet Harbour for only a short time but had made friends quickly and was well liked by the community. He was active in the community garden and a member of the Eastern Shore Wildlife Association. Prior to this, Mark’s love of reading led him to work in the field of journalism. He earned a Diploma in Journalism from Holland College and worked as a reporter for the Halifax Chronicle Herald, Bridgewater Bulletin and was the editor for the Chester Clipper, the Advance and the Shelburne Coast Guard. He had freelance work published in many community and daily newspapers.
Mark is survived by his mother, Donna, son, Jacob, daughter, Hannah, sisters, Nancy and Tracy, brother-in-law David, nephew Adam and niece Sarah.
He was predeceased by his father, Roy.
