Feb. 9, 1945 – Feb. 11, 2012
“What you see is what you get”
It is with much love and great sadness we announce the passing of Marcel.
Marcel was predeceased by his son Troy, his brother Lawrence, and his mother and father, Terry and Joe Fontaine.
Marcel is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, June, his daughter, Tammy (John), grandchildren, Nicole, Bobby-John, great-grandson Tommy-Joesph of Edmonton, brothers and sisters Andy (Rachel), Emil (Donna), Gerry, Lucille (Ralph), Leo (Mary), Geri, sister-in-law Florence (Emil), and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and numerous friends.
Marcel and June lived and worked in Prince George for many years. He had a long career with the City of Prince George. They retired to Chilliwack two years ago. Marcel was diagnosed with cancer shortly afterwards and put up a valiant struggle.
Marcel’s passions were golfing, fishing, browsing newspaper flyers, and we can’t forget his daily ritual arranging his day around the TV guide. He will be fondly remembered for his generosity, his love of family, his willingness to help people get the best deal, and known as Mr. Fix-it.
“He was such a Marcel!”
The family would like to thank his family doctor, Dr. Brodie, his oncologist, Dr. Tan, and Dr. Du Toit and the nursing staff at Chilliwack General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care.
No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations of memory of Marcel may be made to the charity of your choice.
Dear God, take a message to Marcel and tell him how much we miss him and give him all our love.
Your loving wife and family.
