WILSON Marc Wilson Oct. 1, 1941 - Jan. 16, 2021 It is with profound sadness that the Wilson/Browne family announce the passing of Marc Conrad Wilson, on January 16th, 2021, at the age of 79 years at his home in St. Philip’s. Marc will be forever remembered by his wife and love of his life for 34 years, and best friend, Ann Browne; and his children, Marc ‘Junior’ (Marjorie) of Innisville, Ontario and Tammy (Miguel) of Toronto, Ontario. He will also be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Tyson (deceased), Amelia, Angelina, Amanda, Tamara, Samantha, and William; precious companions, Finlay (his special boy), Willow, Oakley, Marlowe, and Quinn; brother-in-law, Joe (Elaine) Browne; sister-in-law, Valerie Wilson; special friends, Dwayne (Dana), Sarah, Michael, and Ryan Rowe; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, extended family, and dear friends in Ontario and Newfoundland. Marc is pre-deceased by his father, Robert; mother, Gladys; father-in-law, Eamon Browne; mother-in-law, Amelia (Emma) Browne; and brother, Robert (Bob). Marc worked at the Toronto Stock Exchange as a professional trader for 52 1/2 years before moving to St. Philip’s, Newfoundland. Marc’s exuberance for his career was evidenced by everyone, both inside and outside the TSX. Marc’s experiences were various and colourful, just like him. From playing semi-professional hockey, to building beautiful stained glass art, to windsurfing and weightlifting until he was 70, Marc loved to live and love large. Marc was a true gentleman; generous, hardworking, a doting companion, and loved by everyone fortunate enough to know him. Marc’s eagerness to live life to the fullest brought him great delight right to the end. The family would like to extend a special thank you to our dear friends who were ever present and supportive. A special, heartfelt, thank you to Dr. Frank O’Dea; nurse, Fatima Mansaray; nurse, Rod Abbott; Nurse Practitioner, Denise Cahill; and all of the staff at the Miller Centre and hyperbaric chamber at the Health Sciences Centre, St. John’s. Following COVID-19 restrictions, visitation will take place at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, St. John’s, on Tuesday, January 19th, from 2PM to 8PM. A celebration of life in Marc’s honour will be held at the Carnell Memorial Chapel on Wednesday, January 20th at 11AM by invitation only. If you wish to attend, please contact the family via [email protected] For those unable to attend, the service will be live streamed. Flowers are gratefully accepted or a donation in Marc’s memory can be made to The War Amps or the Health Care Foundation (hyperbaric chamber).
