DESNOYERS, Marcel Laurent

May 23, 1935 – Coderre, Saskatchewan
November 11, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sorrow that the family of Marcel Laurent Desnoyers announce his passing at the Rockeyview Hospital on November 11, 2018 at the age of 83.

A self taught handyman, he could fix anything and would willingly help everyone. He owned Custom Bit for a number of years and in retirement he hiked, bowled, went camping, played cards, danced, bird watched, created and built a stunning waterfall and pond in his beautiful backyard. He also enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

He will be greatly missed by his wife of 62 years, Marny. Also by son Derek, wife Karen and Neil; son Allen, wife Lesley and Liette and Ravel; daughter Annette, partner Alberto; and brother Dan.

Marcel was predeceased by his sister Helen, son Earl, daughter Diane and her partner Scott and granddaughter Jessica.

At Marcel’s request, a Service will not be held, but if friend’s so desire, memorial donations can be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation at https://www.albertacancer.ca/donate.

In living memory of Marcel Desnoyers, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
