HUGGARD, Marc Andrew

July 8, 1977 – October 11, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and tragic death of Marc Andrew Huggard at the age of 35.

Marc’s fabulous sense of humour, his wonderful way with words and his soft and tender heart can never be replaced. His love for his daughter Maddie was the most precious and dear thing in his short life. Marc grew up in Calgary and graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a Business Degree. He owned, operated and was President of CML Manufacturing Ltd in Airdrie, Alberta.

Marc is survived by his wife Susanne; his daughter Madeleine; his sister Christy and her husband Richard Hammond and their two children, Emma and Owen; and by his parents Linda and Peter. He is also loved and remembered by his parents in-law Lloyd and Patricia Perkins; sister-in-law Lisa; and nephew Alexander. He will also be remembered with love by his uncles, aunts and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents whom he loved dearly. Marc will be missed by all of his many friends but especially by his closest friends. Marc touched people in a deep and unique way. His loving and open nature was a gift to all of us. You will always be in our hearts, Marc.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the children’s charity of your choice.

In living memory of Marc Huggard, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

  6. I was saddened to hear about the loss of my old friend from my West Island College days. Marc was one of the first kids to really treat me as part of the group when I arrived as an outsider from Montreal. His happy and joyous attitude and his jokes made life easier for the new kid. I will always remember him.

    Being in Vancouver I am unable to join the ceremony, my apologies.
    Rest in peace Marc. My condolences to your family and daughter Madeleine.

    There is warmth in the winter sun,
    But I cannot feel it.
    There is warmth from the hearth,
    But it’s cold where I sit.
    For the warmth that I crave is now out of reach,
    The warmth of your touch, your smile and your speech.
    And yet there is a spark to comfort me,
    The flame which we kindled throughout the years,
    Together through all of our joys and our tears.
    It will never be extinguished
    For true love never dies.
