Marc Raymond Casavant

In Memorial

July 14, 1962 – June 28, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Marc Raymond Casavant at his home in Port Coquitlam, BC on June 28, 2011. Marc being a bachelor lived alone. Following a few days of feeling unwell he passed away suddenly and quietly in his home. Marc was born, the second child, in Tisdale Sask. on July 14, 1962

Marc leaves to mourn him; his parents Eugene and Lorette Casavant of Salmon Arm, BC, his older sister Loraine & husband Bruce Farrow of Kelowna, BC, three brothers, Luc of Williams Lake, Philippe and fiancée Keeran Sims of Nanaimo, BC and Denis and wife Joanna of Airdrie, Alta., and a younger sister Monique and her husband Jack Grimmer of Barrie, Ont. Marc also leaves several nieces and nephews; Stefan, Heath and Marsha Farrow of Kelowna, Tamara Casavant of Williams Lake, Meagan and Kayla Grimmer of Barrie Ont. and Owen and Anna Casavant of Airdrie, Alta. He also had countless friends across the province.

Marc had a great love for sports and was involved with teams in a whole variety of sports from high school through college and as an adult during his working life. His sporting endeavours included swimming, volley ball, hockey, fast ball, cycling, golf, to name but a few. He loved spending time with his friends and became quite adept at playing poker with them. Recently as much as possible he spent time refining his golf game. Marc had many lasting friendships beginning with those in the Dawson Creek area, where he resided with the family for some ten years.

His working life was spent mostly in the accounting field. His last several years were spent working for GFR Pharma in Maple Ridge where he was involved in financial planning for the company.

Marc will be greatly missed by his many friends and certainly by his family. Marc had a real way with children and they loved to play with him. His nieces and nephews will especially miss having Uncle Marc teasing them and roughhousing with them.

Marc was always very generous. His nephews & nieces were often beneficiaries of his largess. Many charitable organizations also benefited from Marc. It would have been his wish that rather than flowers that anyone who wished, make a donation either to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver or to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation in Salmon Arm, BC

A Memorial Service will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel 11765 – 224 St. Maple Ridge, BC at 1:00 pm Wednesday July 6, 2011 and a Funeral Service will be held from St Joseph’s Catholic Church at 90 – 1st St SE in Salmon Arm, BC at 11:00 am on Saturday July 9, 2011. May He Rest in Peace.

Arrangements in Maple Ridge are by Garden Hill Funeral Services and by Bowers Funeral Services in Salmon Arm.

Donations in Marc’s name can be made to the BC Children’s Hospital or to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.

    My memories of Marc are all good ones. He and I went through high school together and we both worked as Intructor/Guards at Centennial Pool and Rotary Lake in Dawson Creek. We laughed a ton and were each other’s straight men when required. I remember when we used to close up the pool on a Saturday night and all the guards would have a great time partying in the pool in the dark! One night, someone had the brilliant idea of climbing a ladder up to the rafters and jumping into the deep end…… I think if the City Of Dawson Creek knew of it, we would have been canned on the spot. I usually looked to Marc as the voice of reason, but I guess testosterone kicked-in and all reason went out the door that night for both of us! When we were that age, we thought we were bullet-proof. Now that Marc is gone, I’m hanging on to those memories tighter than ever and that’s how I’ll remember him. That’s the Marc in my memories. Rest well.
    My sincerest condolences.

    Loraine was my best friend and Mark was the younger brother. Even back in elementary school he was a sweet heart. I can still see him trying to dance cool like we all thought we were at the school dances at Notre Dame. Good times for sure. Guess heaven figured it was time for their sweet heart to come home.
    My deepest sympathy to you all. You are in my prayers.

I remember driving around in that old rust bucket Datsun car of his in high school looking for a good time in Dodge! We did find many. I will miss you.
