Obituary

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our husband and father Kenneth “Mark” Rankmore on January 2, 2021 at the age of 68 years. Mark is survived by his wife of 41 years, Janice, daughter Stephanie (Christopher), granddaughters Josephine and Genevieve, brother Doug (Shelagh) and nieces Annie and Sydney. Mark was born in Brandon and spent his adult years working in different areas of business around the city. He worked for Federal Pioneer Electric, Marrs Boat Plant, The Brandon Club and eventually partnering in Humpty's Family Restaurant with his wife. As a young man, Mark enjoyed playing baseball, basketball, hockey, darts, pool and poker. Because of his competitive nature he often played for awards but most importantly for the pleasure and camaraderie. Eventually, due to health concerns, Mark retired. He always intended to focus on his hobbies (like hunting and fishing) but unfortunately that was not to be. The last five years presented numerous deteriorations in his health and thankfully, his heroic battles have come to a peaceful end. As much as he enjoyed those hobbies, the most important thing to him was family. Some of his favorite memories always included Carol and Mark Kindrat, Garry and Rhonda Unger, Marc and Doreen Alain, Joanne and Brian Mackie and his brother Doug, as well as his hunting, fishing and poker friends. His granddaughters were the light of his life though. He learned how to text and video chat to keep in touch with them and he loved hearing about all of their accomplishments, their stories and their laughter. They will miss their Papa incredibly. We all will. Janice and Stephanie would like to thank the nurses and staff at BRHC and most specifically the Palliative Care Unit at the Assiniboine Centre for taking care of our Hero as much as he took care of us. We will never forget how kind you were to him and to us. There will be a memorial service at a later date to celebrate Mark's quirks and imperfections, just as he would have wanted.

Mark was the first kid I ever met, and I think I was the first kid he ever met.
We were both living on 7th street, at opposite ends of the block, and in the summer of 1954 we were both out on the sidewalk, riding our tricycles.
It was a great summer day for two guys (strangers) to be out for a ride.
After seeing each other, we approached, slowly, and cautiously, carefully guiding our front wheels to bump.
I distinctly remember that when our front wheels bumped, we looked up at each other and laughed.
After that we were best friends for many years.
We rode our bikes everywhere, played marbles, and blew up lots of stuff with firecrackers lit with a magnifying glass.
Ahhh… the smell of burning ants.
Thinking of him, and our friendship, brought back many memories.
When I read the news of Mark's passing, I poured a wee dram, raised the glass, and said goodbye.
My thoughts are with his family., and all his friends. I am sorry for your loss.

Janice and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Mark playing darts at the Brandon Club many years ago. He was such a kind man and always watched out for us “kids”. I enjoyed reconnecting with him when my family and I would go for breakfast at Humpty’s. His love of his family and friends was always so evident and I know you have many wonderful memories to remember him.

Janice, I was heartbroken to hear that Mark has passed. He was a special guy and I enjoyed every minute with both of you. I’ll miss hearing, “How are ya, kid?” Sending you a huge hug.
