August 6 1925 – October 27 2013
Sadly, Marcel Joseph Begin recently resident in Comox/Courtenay, passed on from this life on 27 October, 2013. He will be sorely missed by his wife Gloria and children: Paul & Heather, Archie & Gayle, Cholene, Marcella & Mark, Carmen, Colin, Josh, Jenna, Hilary, Corey and a plethora of great grandchildren whose numbers keep climbing with the posting of this obituary. His surviving sisters – Rita, Ghislaine and stepmother, Rose-Annette mourn with us.
Marcel never wanted anyone to make a fuss over his passing and those of you who know him would probably cough at any suggestion of a religious service over his death. As per his wishes, no non-Family, formal services will be performed and his remains will be interred in Port Hardy – along with his pre-deceased children – Alan and Marie. Marcel walked his talk and had a smile for everyone he met and who could hope to leave life with a better testament than that? He walks his dogs now in a place where the good guys get to go. We love you Dad/Grampa/Great-Grampa…say hi to Chick & Al, Marthe, Gaëtane, Fernande and Marie-Berthe.
