Passed peacefully at home after a 22-month struggle with cancer. He often said “I never got COVID but I’m collateral damage”.
Marco was brought to Canada from The Netherlands by his parents Margo (2019) and Cornelius (2020) arriving on July 1, 1954. Survived by sisters Sylvia and Audrey. Leaving a huge hole in the hearts and lives of his wife of 49 years Donna, daughter Catherine (Isaque Saraiva) and son Brian.
He had an ongoing thirst for knowledge and love of nature. Member of rare Charitable Research Reserve, Waterloo Region Nature and proudly served with the Highland Fusiliers of Canada retiring with the rank of Sergeant.
