Obituary For James "Mark" Tegart

James “Mark” Tegart

February 4, 1960 - October 2, 2021

On October 2, 2021 at the age of 61 years old, Mark Tegart passed away after a brief illness, at the QEII Hospital in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Mark will be lovingly remembered as a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He had a strong work ethic and enjoyed a long career in the concrete industry, later realizing his dream when he established Tegart Concrete Pumping Ltd. in 2004. He was especially pleased it was family orientated with his wife Janet, son Jeff, daughter Mandy and grandsons Logan and Gavin by his side to help make it a success, a legacy that will continue to honor all his hard work. Concrete was his passion and his name was well known in the industry, Mark always wore a smile and looked for the best in everyone and gave the best of himself. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.

Mark is survived by his wife Janet, son Jeff (Sue), daughter Mandy (Jeff), grandchildren Levi, Chloe, Jessica, Logan, Gavin, Mason and Madison; siblings, David (Gwen), Linda, Donald (Judy), Keith (Cornelia), Susan (David) and many nieces and nephews.

  • He will be remembered with love and respect by so many. We poured a concrete step last week, and engraved his initials in the corner. Rest in peace, dear Mark.

  • My dad had a lot of respect for Mark's work ethic and knowledge of concrete. I worked part time after school and in the summer at Tri-S and Mark taught me how to drive gravel and concrete truck and the loaders. He also taught me a lesson once when I climbed into a mixer to jack hammer dried concrete and I forgot to take the key out of the ignition. Mark fired up the truck (knowing I was in the back) and revved the engine as I raced to get out of the mixer. I never left the key in again after that. A Luck

  • We haven't seen Mark in many years, but he'll always stand out as one of the warmest people we've ever known. Joe and I are so sad to hear of his passing, and pray your memories of him will bring you joy in the times to come. Joe and Annette Little

  • We are so sorry to read about Marks passing. he was such a beautiful man with a big heart and a big smile. He rented a shop from us before he built his own. We had plenty of great chats and whenever I needed help with anything or my father or mother-in-law needed help he was always there to help us out. Such a great man that was very genuine. He always spoke of his wife children and grandkids. Condolences Hugs and prayers to all the family thinking of you all. Machelle and Gervin Antypowich

  • Hey Mark you will be missed deeply! Loved working with you thru the years! I will miss you hollering 'hey mama's boy' across the job, didn't matter how old I got I was mama's boy lol! Rest in Peace in the Loving Hands of God...

  • Our sincerest sympathies Janet and family. Mark was a truly outstanding guy and we have many great memories of him. May you find comfort in your happy memories. Gerard & Janet Biegel

  • When I think of Mark I think of both his profound shyness and profound pride. There no doubt will be others on here that will talk about his shyness and his famous blush -- immediate and intense. But I can't help but think of his pride. His pride in having such a beautiful family, in his sons and daughter and the grandchildren they gave him. His pride and enjoyment in watching his wife retell a funny story. In teasing his daughter. I can't imagine how proud he must of been of that tattoo the first time he saw it Jeff. His pride in his business. In its success. Whether hosting a BBQ or a thanksgiving meal, his pride in sharing his home and his food. (The yorkshire pudding !) In virtually every picture you'll see of him there it'll be -- so proud to be standing with his loved ones, holding those babies, setting up the pump, driving the tractor... That is a good life. To love and have been loved and to know it without doubt. That is well earned pride and he deserved to feel that way. I'm proud to have known him. All our love to you Janet, Mandy and Jeff, and your family Love Joe, Tina and family

  • Our sincere condolences. Mark was an awesome guy. Rod and Carole Arkinstall
