Guy Marcoux

May 12, 1930 - March 29, 2011


RCMP Deputy Commissioner (Retired)

It is with great sadness that the family of RCMP Deputy Commissioner (ret’d) Guy Marcoux announces his passing on March 29, 2011. Predeceased by his first wife Shirley (Rennie) of Abbey, Saskatchewan. Survived by his children Stewart (Claudette Levesque), Rennie (Guy Gallant), Maureen, Michel (Julia Burns), and his cherished grandchildren who adored him Shaun André, Johanie, Nathalie, Nicolas, Brittany, Liam and Maria; adopted daughter Juana Laura Garcia (Ayhan Karaceper); step-daughters Cathy Gordon (Luke), Susanne Mackillop (Malcolm), and their children Rebecca, Jason, Rory and Laura.

Son of the late Roland Marcoux and Jeannette Lalancette, Guy grew up in Roberval (Lac St-Jean). He joined the RCMP on July 5, 1950 and served for 35 years in Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Québec, Yukon and Ottawa. After his retirement, he worked with External Affairs (Trade Negotiations Office), and Health Canada (Canadian Panel on Violence against Women). He was a Governor of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires for 21 years and served as chairman of the Board of Directors for the Ottawa Division.

Following the death of his first wife, Guy married Wendy Bradshaw of Duncan, B.C. He adopted her family and embraced a new life on Vancouver Island filled with travel, golfing, children and grandchildren from both families.

Guy is also survived by several brothers, sisters and family from Québec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, B.C. and Oregon. He will be deeply missed by the many friends whose lives he enriched.

A celebration of Guy’s life will take place at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club, 4955 Trans-Canada Highway in Duncan, on Sunday April 3, 2011 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. A funeral service will take place in the RCMP Chapel in Regina on April 9 at 12:30 p.m., followed by his burial in the RCMP Cemetery alongside his late wife Shirley. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the RCMP Museum in Regina at the following address: Friends of the Mounted Police Heritage Center, 5907 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, Sask S4T 0P4.

From: Richard Alvon Bunn
Relation: I knew Guy in Whitehorse

I was a Cst. in 1972 and transfered from Cape Dorset NWT with the idea i would be the Cst. i/c of Customs and Excise. Once in Whitehorse i really did not want to do the job as i really enjoyed being a Policeman in Whitehorse and i did not want to do Customs, he advised me “I can’t blame you in the least” I stayed in Whitehorse one year went on and promoted to Cpl in Fort Good Hope. Many members and myself have a great deal of respect for Guy, he was a great leader and used lots of common sense.

My heartfelt condolences to Wendy and Guy’s family. I served with Guy originally in Biggar, Saskatchewan. He was a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced policeman. He carried his Kindness and consideration of others with him throughout his career. He will be missed.

From: Garth and Eleanor Hampson
Relation: Long time friend from RCMP days

Of all the people I met over my 34 year career with the Force, some stood out more than others and many became personal friends. Both Shirley and Guy were among them. Whenever we performed with the Concert Band, no matter in what city it was, Guy and Shirley always came back stage to express their thanks. That was so rewarding to all of us. Guy always took time to come up and say hello – from a Deputy Comm’r , that was greatly appreciated. To all the family, we send our condolences. Guy was one of the best. and we miss him.
