Mark Inama

September 9, 1963 — January 28, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mark Inama, an exceptional man, father, husband, brother, grandfather, friend, and coach. Mark was born on September 9, 1963, and passed away on January 28, 2024.

Mark is survived by his loving wife, Birgit Inama; his children, Jennifer (Shawn) Deneault, Stephanie Inama, and Christopher (Brittney) Inama; his mother, Elizabeth Inama; his sister, Christine (Teddy) Lovisotto; his nephews, Michael, Nicholas, and Matteo Lovisotto, and his grandsons, Louis and Oliver Deneault. Mark was predeceased by his father, Luigi (Gino) Inama. His family was his pride and joy, and he left a profound and lasting impression on each of their lives.

Mark's greatest accomplishments were his children, grandchildren, and the many hockey teams he coached throughout his career. Most recently, he was a respected Coach at Heartland Dragons Hockey Association in Mississauga, where his influence and impact on both players and other coaches was significant. Mark’s devotion and commitment was undeniable; he was a mentor, leader, and advocate to countless individuals in the hockey community.

Mark had an illustrious ability to uplift and connect with those around him. His enthusiasm and dedication for his beloved sports team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and favourite band, Queen, were contagious and always brought a smile to those around him.

The void left by Mark's departure will undoubtedly be felt by many, but his memory will continue to resonate in the lives of those he touched. His legacy will live on through the love he shared, his family, and the many hockey players he inspired and coached.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Details will be shared once available.

Mark was admitted, diagnosed, treated, and cared for at Trillium hospitals. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Mark’s memory to Trillium Health Partners Foundation for Glioblastoma Research.

“Go to sleep and dream again
Soon your hopes will rise and then
From all this gloom, life can start anew
And there’ll be no crying soon”
- Queen
