Mark with one of the future members of the Aviapool team - Sienna Bryan.
From left to right Aviapool employees Chris Barber, Liam Bryan (with daughter Sienna), Mark Daniels, and Connor Bryan.
It is with deep sadness that Aviapool mourns the loss of our valued staff member and colleague, Mark Daniels.
Mark died at home after a short battle with an aggressive cancer. Our hearts go out to his wife Sarah, and all of their family members.
We want to thank you for being such a great friend, teamster and honourable person. It is great guys like you that make life so special and allow us the strength to brush off the BS that so much of the world deals to all of us each day. You always put a smile on all of our faces. Certainly, that quality has touched countless people in your orbit. Your mark (pun intended!) is indelible on all of us. You were one special bloke.
Thinking of you now and always -
your friends at Aviapool
A private funeral will be held on Thursday, June 17th and the family has asked that anyone who wishes to make a donation in Mark’s honour, please send it to:
