Marcel Anatole Roy

It is with profound sadness the family of Marcel A. Roy announce his passing on Thurs., Feb. 8, 2018, after a brief illness at the Ottawa General Hospital with his family by his side.
He was the loving husband of Crystal (nee Knapp). He was the proud father of Bobby (Shannon), Josee (Steven Clement), Vanessa (Stephen Kelly), and Steven (Debbie Alberty), and the even prouder Grandpa of six, Ashley, Justin, Julia, Grace, Hannah, and Kira. He will be sadly missed by his sister, Yvette LaFontaine (Laurent); brother Raymond; and was predeceased by his brother, Roland.
Special thanks to the I.C.U. team at the Ottawa General Hospital for their support and care.
Private family services will be held at a later date.
Donations to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) would be appreciated.  The arrangements are in the care of the Winchester Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry.
“If others wonder why he’s missing just tell them he’s gone fishing.”
