the family of Duncan Marshall

Duncan was a fine man, and a great colleague at work. We were at the Department of Indian Affairs together for several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and Duncan went out of his way to help me understand the complexities and challenges I would face. Everyone loved his sense of humour, his fairness, his insights and his dedication. Most of all, I loved his enthusiasm - for work, for family, for his many pursuits. My husband and I attended a terrific party at the lovely family home, where at last I met the people of whom he spoke most fondly, and often. I am sure he will be missed greatly by all whom he met.

Although I offered my condolences to all of you at the funeral, I wanted to let you know that, from my experience, the very sad passing of your father, Duncan can linger in your hearts for some time.
I have many memories of him: his great pride in his children, his loving devotion to Gudula- your sparkling and talented Mom-, his delight with all things "aviation", his many stories about " The historic Tiger Moth" as well as his happy memories of Grey Cup games.

His infectious, youthful smile usually highlighted his stories, even when he talked about fairly serious matters. Like many of his ( and my) generation, he avoided complaining and seemed to follow that famous motto : " keep calm and carry on".

May your father rest in the Peace that only God can bestow.
