It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a member of the Pickering Squash Club family. Markus Templer passed away on Sunday June 12th. Markus inherited a genetic heart defect that affected him throughout his life. Although the cause of death is yet to be determined, it is expected that the cause was heart failure.
Markus grew up on the singles courts of Pickering. He was an elite player for many years. His parents were very active in the Pickering Squash Club. His mother, Victoria, served on the Club executive and was honoured by The Club in 1999 being awarded the Chris Doona Trophy for exceptional service to The Club.
Markus is survived by his mother, Vitoria, his two sisters, Faylyne and Angela, and brother, Felix.
His many friends in the Pickering Squash Club send their condolences to Victoria, and her family in this difficult time.
