In loving memory of Marc Vachon who passed away peacefully at the Mindemoya Hospital on Manitoulin Island on December 22nd, 2015 at the age of 69 years. Predeceased by his parents Louis-Pierre and Selma Vachon and siblings Pete, Diane and Claudia. He is survived by his wife Judi, daughter Christine Hellstrom (Todd), son Robert D'Arcy (Monica), beloved 'Grummpy' of Liam, brother Robert (Linda), sisters Maria (Bob) Carroll and Andrée (Ray Delean). After 38 years of devoted service to Inco, Marc's greatest pleasures were spent at their home on Lonely Bay with family and friends. Glass of wine in hand and always the entertainer, Marc was a keen observer and excellent storyteller, often finding humour in questioning the logic of the status quo. Over the course of his lifetime, he was blessed with 19 Stanley Cups won by his Habs and 4 Super Bowls by his Packers, all without leaving the couch.  Marc also enjoyed golf and all the challenges and hilarity that accompany a round. An avid reader of "User Manuals", Marc was a stickler for ensuring that he, and all others he came into contact with adhered to the safety code. Marc was an avid lover of music often regaling all who would listen. His captivating laugh resonated with all that met him. He will be deeply missed. Please join us for a celebration of Marc's life on Saturday, January 9th, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. at the Island Funeral Home in Little Current. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mindemoya Health Centre Auxiliary Fund would be appreciated. Arrangements in care of Simple Wishes of the North. (705) 470-7070

Dear Judi and family,

I didn't know Marc very long although my brief encounter with him left an impact. I recall his sense of humour, his joie de vivre and certainly his kind heart.

Please accept my condolences and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
