Courageously and peacefully on September 9, 2012, Marvin Lorne MacLeod from Belle River, lost his hard-fought battle with cancer.
Throughout his 56 years (born Feb. 2, 1956) he experienced life the way we all should; he lived well, he laughed often, and loved so very much. His career was spent with Northumberland Ferries, on the upper decks, as Navigating Officer Second Mate and his spare time was devoted to helping his community and spending time with those he cared for. The love shared between Marvin and his wife Lynn was unwavering and inspirational to all those who knew them. Their 13 years together gave him a lifetime of happiness.
Over the years Marvin lost both his parents, Harry Tuttle MacLeod and Mary Elizabeth (Ross) MacLeod; his sister, Marion (in infancy); brother-in-law, Cleveland Hancock; and father-in-law, Steven Lukacsy.
Forever in their hearts, Marvin will be remembered by his wife, Lynn (Lukacsy) MacLeod; his son, Christopher (Sharon) MacLeod; and granddaughter, Sky; sister, Miriam Hancock; brother, Daniel "Bussy" (Mary) MacLeod; special nephew, Barry Hancock; mother-in-law, Victoire Lukacsy, and brother-in-law, Michel (Jay) Lukacsy, both from Welland, Ontario; Uncle John, Aunt Elva, Aunt Phyllis, Aunt Zelda; and several nephews, nieces and cousins. Waiting at the window will be his fur babies, Chloe, Gigi, Kiwi, Libby and Boots.
Marvin's memory and spirit will be held passionately by those that he considered his chosen family, the Mullally Family, David and Dottie Penny, the Belfast Fire Department, and the Canadian Red Cross.
Visitation will be held at Ferguson-Logan Montague Funeral Home on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. Memorial service will be held in the Ferguson-Logan Montague Chapel on Saturday, September 15, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. Interment will take place in the Little Sands Cemetery.
By request of the family, in lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the Canadian Red Cross.
His smile would brighten the day and light up the room. Even though that light now casts a shadow on our hearts his memory will shine through forever.
