Marc Philippe Poulin

November 25, 1937

– August 28, 2015

Marc passed away peacefully with his wife Rhea and his daughters at his side on Friday August 28, 2015 in Kootenay Lake Hospital.

Marc enjoyed a full life spent in Nelson and was happiest with his family, friends, church and community.

His favourite activities included spending time with his brothers and friends outdoors hunting, and fishing both on the local streams and on the West Coast of BC.

He spent many happy hours enjoying the view across Kootenay Lake, watching the local wildlife, and working on the beach and his garden.

Marc is survived by his wife Rhea, children Maurice (Karen); Janine (Trevor); Annette; Noel; Christopher; and Carrie; his grandchildren James, Sydney (Andrew), Brittany, Kyle, Nicholas, and Michael, and great grandchild Alicia as well as his siblings Rosella; Loraine; Patrick (Peggy); Delphine (Ross); Gerry (Jeanette) and their families. He is pre-deceased by his father, Gene; mother, Alma; sister, Jeanette; and brother, Ray.

The family celebrated Marc’s life with a funeral at the Cathedral of Mary Immaculate.  

In lieu of cards and flowers, the family requests that donations may be made to Mother Teresa or a charity of your choice.
