Mark Anthony Ciavaglia, formerly of Kincardine, died Sept. 27, 2020. Beloved husband of Kathryn Anne (née Grace) and loving father of Matthew (Jennifer), Drew, and Zoë (Jeffery). Cherished grandfather of Jack, Grace and Elena Ciavaglia, Jordan Kelly, and Ava and Dale MacCrostie. He will be greatly missed by his siblings, Donna Chimko (Rick), Robert Ciavaglia (Carrie) and Rosanna Ciavaglia; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Mark spent his youth in Ottawa on the football field at Laurentian High School and then Carleton University where he gained many fond friends and some of his favourite memories. He then went on to have a full career, first in social work, then teaching. Mark spent 23 years of his career in Kincardine where he taught drama and English at Kincardine District Secondary School. His culminating years of work were spent promoting the voice of education for the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation. Mark was known by his family and those he loved, for his strong values and beliefs. That guidance in life will be truly missed. On-line condolences at
