Sibset of the Week: The Speights

Mark Speight, from

We all have childhood heroes, and mine was the engaging presenter of a children’s art show, Mark Speight. He made art seem like so much fun, and it was a dark day when he took his own life after his fiancée’s death. Plus, he was a lefty, like myself, proving we lefties have the ability to draw pretty things.

Either way, he was part of a perhaps not-so-unusual sibset:

Mark Warwick Fordham

Tina Louise


His grandparents are the delightfully named: Leonard George and Evelyn Ada. His parents are Oliver Warwick and Jacqueline Fordham.

    My mother’s name is Tina Louise! (We’re in Canada) I’m sorry to hear about his (Mark’s) death, very sad.
