Marcel J. Dufault
It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Marcel J. Dufault in Portage la Prairie on Friday, April 9, 2021 at the age of 77 years.
He leaves to mourn his passing his wife Gail Dufault, his children Michel (Nancy) Dufault, Gisèle (Randy) Perkin, René (Sharon) Dufault and Suzanne (Mike) Macina; his step children Kim (Kyle) Gallant and Stef (Brett) Legault; his grandchildren, Kendra Thompson, Cory Perkin, Tyler Macina, Nick Macina, Emilie Dufault (Brayden), Patrick Dufault (Tiffany), Eric Dufault (Elleena), Angela Macina, Livia Legault and Luke Legault as well as his great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Marcel was predeceased by his first wife Diane Dufault (née Mondor), his parents Edmond and Clemence Dufault and his brothers Denis and Lucien Dufault.
Marcel was involved in various organizations in the community such as being the president of the local Caisse Populaire, a director at the local Co-operative movement and also a trustee for the St. Denis Parish. He was a councilor for ward 3 in the RM of Grey during the 80s as well as being a board member of the St. Claude Veterinary Clinic and local hospital and manor boards.
Marcel was a highly sociable, intellectual man and superhero, our rock of the family! He was a humble, healthy and hard working man. Even at his age, he wanted to continue farming. He is also a devoted catholic and extremely proud grandfather!
We will never forget you Papa, rest in peace! Love you till we meet again!
The family would like to thank STARS Ambulance, by standers, nurses and doctors at the Portage District General Hospital and surrounding area for all your care and compassion and assistance.
