My sympathy to family. Marcel was a great friend. We competed in handball years ago - great memories of that time.

Marcel and I first met while playing on opposing PAL teams back in the mid-40s. My folks went to see one of those games, with my sister, Connie, tagging along. Marcel and Connie made that well-known teen eye contact during the game and that was the beginning of their wonderful love, leading to a happy marriage. Marcel was probably the best straight man one could hope for, especially when you told him a lame joke. He would still bounce off the walls with that so infectious laugh of his. And how he loved his family! When Connie passed away, we were so happy for him to have found another love with Maggie.

All our love to each one of Marcel's family and dear friends.
