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. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Le 29 mars 2011 à Duncan, C.-B., est décédé le sous-commissaire de la GRC à la retraite J.N.R. Guy Marcoux, son épouse Wendy Bradshaw à ses côtés. Guy laisse dans le deuil profond ses quatre enfants, Stewart (Claudette Levesque), Rennie (Guy Gallant), Maureen et Michel (Julia Burns), sa fille adoptive Juana Laura Garcia (Ayhan Karaceper), ainsi que ses sept petits-enfants qui l’adoraient Shaun André, Johanie, Nathalie, Nicolas, Brittany, Liam et Maria. Les deux filles et la famille de son épouse Wendy le pleurent également.

Originaire de Roberval au Lac St-Jean, il laisse également dans une tristesse profonde plusieurs frères et sœurs, ainsi que d’autres membres de sa famille au Québec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, C.-B. et Oregon.

Guy avait 35 ans de service dans la GRC, ayant servi des communautés en Saskatchewan, Nouveau Brunswick, Québec, Yukon et Ottawa. À sa retraite de la GRC, il a travaillé pour le ministère des Affaires extérieures (Bureau des négociations commerciales) et Santé Canada (Comité canadien sur la violence faite aux femmes). Il était Gouverneur du Corps canadien des commissionnaires pendant 21 ans et président du comité de direction de la Division d’Ottawa.

Ses amis pourront lui rendre hommage au Cowichan Golf and Country Club, au 4955 Trans-Canada Highway à Duncan le 3 avril de 14 heures à 17 heures.

From: Chris Tiller
Relation: My last Deputy Commissioner

Many old fossils like me will agree that Guy was probably the greatest man to hold that rank and position. He had the rare ability to get things done through Leadership and not Rank. He was a great representative of the Force and indeed Canada, being known across the land. His passing was a great shock. Anne and I want to express our deepest sympathy to grieving family members. We will remember him always.
Anne/Chris Tiller.

From: Ray & Bette JOHNSON
Relation: Served under Guy in Whitehorse.

Guy was thie O.C. Yukon Sub/Division duriing my time as NCO i/c Whitehorse Detachment. He was a fine Officer, caring and considerate to all, members, families and the Community. I particularily remember Fishing Trips, to Ajax Lake, and Quiet Lake. Years llatrer, when he viisited Winnipeg as a D/Clommr, he always remembered us, and otihers,from Yukon.

From: Ed and Carole Zawyrucha
Relation: member of RCMP

We first met Guy when we were stationed in Carmacks, Yukon in 1970-72. Nearly 40 years later he still recalled specifics of that first visit, a testament to his caring and sincere nature. He was a gentleman through and through and an example to all. Our deepest sympathies to the family.

From: Clarke Bedford
Relation: friend of son Mike

Mike, I have many fond memories of driving to and from hockey games with you and your dad. I remember him every time I hear someone say “shoot the puck”. Please accept my condolences for you loss and pass on my best to your brother and sisters.
