Marcel and family,

I truly cannot believe you are gone. You were meant to survive. I am so proud of you fighting no one else could. You had many reasons to survive and you totally gave her. I cannot imagine life without you my friend/brother. As a child I remember we played together with cars, cards and games in general. You taught me a lot from right and wrong. You loved me at my best and and at my worst. This is unconditional love which is priceless. I would at this time add to his obituary.

This obituary includes my parents Violette Magnan (Cousineau), Marcel Magnan and my sister Diane whom are pre-deceaced. This obituary also includes Diane pre-deceaced (Robert Archambault), Denise (Michel Rochon), Frank Magnan (Anne Belec), Suzanne (Louise Deroroches), Angele (Raymond Gagnon) and Francine Magnan (Michel Prevost). RIP Marcel! Love you more my friend/brother. xoxoxo

It's hard to say goodbye but know that Marcel is no longer in the prison of his body, but free to walk without pain, without sorrow and without fear. May the God of Comfort be with you all in the coming days, weeks and years as you reminisce about Marcel's life and love.
