Marcel was a one of a kind guy! It was always great to see him! He always made it a point to stop by or call to check in making sure everything was ok and if anything was needed. A visit with him was always enjoyable... stories of the good ole days and he also had a very canny sense of humor. He was a kind and caring man. Mark and Claire and your family our thoughts and prayers are with you...sorry we are not able to make the funeral. It was a pleasure to have known Marcel.

I fondly remember Marcel stopping and chatting in my Dad's store. The conversation was always kind and interesting . Just like the mettle of the man himself. My sympathy goes out to the family on your great loss. That loss also extends to the community where one of the finest citizens is no longer there.

Dear Tony, Claire, Priscilla, and the entire Doyon Family,

Our deepest condolences and sympathy for the passing of your father. I was saddened to hear of this. My mom told me about it at Montello Heights.

I am sorry I cannot attend the service as mom is undergoing surgery again from her fall in August.

I hold you in reverent and peaceful thoughts during this difficult time.

With sympathy,

Conrad and the Davis Family

Our family was connected to yours in several ways. My parents were Frank and Cecile Cromwell from Bath, so we always heard stories growing up.
Also my godmother is/was Betty Oliver!!
We never realized Marcel and my dad were so close in age. My dad, Frank would have turned 100 on 10/10/2018.
We send our sympathy and Love during this difficult time. May your memories bring you comfort and peace. 🙏🏻❤️

Uncle Marcel and Aunt Lucille helped me through a difficult time. He welcomed my wife to America with a gift of lobster and a warmth that was so appreciated. Our drive to the cemetery in Brunswick revealed the depth of his love and care. Now he and his beloved wife are reunited at last.
