I was very sorry to learn of the passing of Marcel.

Although our paths have not crossed in the past few years, I have very fond memories of Marcel and him sharing his talents with us at the Monday night jam sessions and the Thursday Afternoon Senior's group

Whenever I see Marcel's uniform on the mannequin in the memorabilia Room at the legion, I always think have a pleasant thought of him.

Sleep peacefully.

My deepest sympathies to Marcel's family: I am also from "Lemoyne" and also served most of my life in the military; Marcel was three yrs older but we attended the same schools. We only interacted a few times during our careers; however from 2005 to 2000 we would meet often at Tim's in Elmsdale (both working at the airport).
Marcel was proud of his military experience but doubly proud to be a Cape Bretoner from Grand Etang, and of his acadian culture and traditions. He was a great person, a very good entertainer, and will be deeply missed; RIP Marcel.

Phillip (Phil) Cormier (Moineau).

So sorry to hear of Marcels passing, I used to work with him a few years ago. We always had a good chat in the morning when he was leaving and I was coming in to work. Rest easy friend

Marcel is the cousin closest to me in age and I have very fond memories of childhood visits to Grand Etang every summer when we would play to our heart’s content. Two weeks of pure freedom while our mothers—Cecile Anne and Bernadette— would catch up on the previous years’ news. Those two weeks were the highlight of my year and I still get a thrill whenever I reach to top of the hill on the highway before seeing Marcel’s family home. Their backyard and gardens were pure delight and we always found plenty to keep us occupied and out of our mothers’ way. As years went by, we got together at St. FXU in Antigonish and took a trip together to celebrate the MiCareme during our March Break. What fun we had! And Marcel’s well-awaited and well-welcomed Christmas card was always the first one I received each year. This past Christmas was the first that I did not receive one and I wondered why! Little did I know he was not well. The photos and videos he shared of his wonderful grandchildren were filled with the love he had for both and became his reason to live. He will be missed! I thank Maurice for letting me know of Marcel’s passing as I was en route to Alberta at the time and just returned home today. I offer my sincerest condolences to Andre and Ian and all those who loved Marcel. He was a great cousin with a heart of gold, kind, gentle and loving. May he Rest In Peace!
