Tom Mark was born in 1923. In 1941 he joined the Air Force and spent most of the Second World War in Yorkshire, England. He married an English woman, who he met at the local dance, and together they moved back to Canada at the end of the war. By 1948 he got his first job as an attendant at a diesel service station on the New Westminster waterfront, and around 1956 he was the sole operator of the Shell service station beneath the Pattullo Bridge on the New Westminster waterfront, which serviced ships and boats. The interview was conducted as part of Hist 451: Oral History Practicum offered at Simon Fraser University during Spring 2014
