February 11, 1924 – August 26, 2018
Marcel died peacefully on Sunday, August 26, 2018, of heart failure, at the age of 94 years.
He was born in Leslieville, Alberta where he grew up on the family farm. He served in WW II and then settled in the Lower Mainland of BC upon discharge in May 1946. Marcel moved to Calgary, Alberta in November 2014 to be closer to his family after health problems became an issue.
Marcel is lovingly remembered by his daughter Linda (Terry) Gomke and son Dale (Jan) Wolney; six grandchildren Julie, Matthew, Kyle, Jordan, Dylan, Chelsea; two great-grandchildren Abby and Cole. Marcel was predeceased by his wife Eunice in 2009.
Marcel’s greatest passion was fishing. After retirement, he spent many hours fishing at Langara Fishing Lodge and trout fishing in the Interior of British Columbia. There was never a bad day fishing as far as he was concerned. Our family would like to express our gratitude to all the staff at the Colonel Belcher for their caring and kindness towards Marcel.
