The death of Marc Colvin occurred peacefully in Calgary Alberta, on Thursday, November 17, 2016
Treasured son to Jeannine Colvin and the late Bill Colvin; brother to Bill and Jamie (Jenn), loving husband to Julie, beloved father to Emma and William, and loving uncle to Cody, Brittany, Kate, Sara and Ava.
Marc grew up in Huntsville where he was a great athlete. He played Junior A hockey for the Orillia Travelways, then went on to play NCAA hockey on a scholarship at Michigan Tech University, putting much of that expertise to use helping to coach his son’s hockey team in New Liskeard, Ontario, for several years. Marc also enjoyed golf and fishing, but most especially, his family.
Marc was taken too soon. He passed peacefully with his wife and children by his side after bravely facing the immense challenges of ALS.
Today, we mourn this tremendous loss for our family, but more importantly, we celebrate and honor the privilege to have had such a loving and devoted son, brother, husband, father, uncle and friend. Marc will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
A Funeral Mass will be held in Marc’s hometown of Huntsville, Ontario, at Saint Mary of the Assumption Roman Catholic Church, 12 Centre Street North, Huntsville – Saturday, Nov. 26th, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. – followed by a reception at the same church. Light snacks and refreshments will be available.
It would be appreciated by the family for donations to be made to the ALS society, in lieu of flowers.
