Marcel peacefully fell asleep one
last time, December 9th, 2012 Our deepest sympathies to his
Diagnosed with incurable lung cancer, stage 3B, July
26. He had his first palliative radiation treatment
on his 79th birthday.
As a youth, he was always out in the woods, hunting and hiking about. He
was a good hockey player, and was in the farm team for
the Montreal Canadians, but was dropped when he did
not attain the size of the average hockey player of
that era. He was in the armed forces for 6 years, and
then became a hard rock miner for over 30 years.
He had 3 boys with his first wife, and had some great
times with his boys. His eldest son has some very fond
memories of the motorcycle trips that he and his
friends took on the back roads of that area.
I was fortunate to meet him 30 years ago, and we will
celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary this coming
Since retiring, he has excelled at fixing things for
everyone, and is always ready to lend a hand when he
can. That is the worst part of his illness, as he
doesn’t have the “wind” to do things he would like to
do. Most people that had met him before his illness
presumed that he was 12 years younger than he is, as
he was always out in his shed puttering or building
and fixing things.
Thanks so much Michelle for helping cheer his spirit.
truly enjoyed the cards he received, especially the ones done by the
children. It touched his heart that people, even ones he did not
know, would send him a card to raise his spirits. Thank you from the
bottom of our hearts... His family.
