  • MARKOVS (Andrew):

    Dearest Andris,

    The first time I got to know you was at a Mental Health Bill Implementation Reference Group meeting at the Mental Health Commission. I was struck by your extremely deep voice and eloquence and in the way you advocated so fervently for mental health consumers' rights. Then, when I met your lovely wife at the MH Review Board, I was introduced to you and felt very privileged to have made a lifelong friend. Your heartfelt hugs and compassion will forever be remembered. Rest in Peace Andris.

    Dear Andrew,

    You are a landmark in our consciousness and a fountain of memories. Kookas, the parties at Vancouver Street, the work with Landcorp and even the adversities. You survived and gave so much more back to the world. Brilliant.

    We will always remember you.

    All our love,

    Adam Wolfe and Sue Giles.

  • MARKOVS (Andrew):

    Remembering the passing of Andrew Markovs, the Menswork Project pays particular tribute to his remarkable contribution in Albany, both as a Men’s Mental Health professional and his encouragement of men’s groups in the region. Fond memories of his support for MWP when we took the stage production 'The Men’ to Albany. His openness and charismatic presence made him a standout figure in his community, not only for Menswork, but in theatre, fine food and architecture. A bountiful life, well lived.
