Remembering Mark

It’s with a heavy heart that Sahir House would like to inform you that Mark Julius, a long-time volunteer of our organisation, has recently died.

We send our condolences to his partner, David, his family, and friends.

For those of you who knew him you will know he was a talented musician (often playing at our World AIDS Day vigils), a master of quiz questions, a champion and activist for a number of causes.

Mark had a wicked sense of humour, which delighted his fellow volunteers and lifted anyone who had the opportunity to tune into his stories and one-liners.

Mark had presence. He would light up a room when he walked in. He would feed you food for thought.  He would lift your spirits. He would challenge and call things out.

He shall be greatly missed.

There is a service followed by a wake to celebrate Mark’s life.

The details are as follows:

Mark’s funeral will be on the 29th of January at 15:30 at Springwood Crematorium.

The funeral cars will depart from Peter Kavanagh’s pub on Egerton Street at 14:30 to leave for 14:45.

The wake will be from 16:30 till 23:00 at OSQA’s bar on Oldham Street to celebrate and commemorate Marks’ glorious, vibrant, and impactful life.
