It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Marshall Nestor Melnyk of Fort Saskatchewan, AB on August 14, 2021 at the age of 81 years. Marshall is survived by his loving wife, Patricia; son, Jason (Leslie); grandchildren Rhett and Chayse; sister, Virginia; brother, Ernie (Fran); nieces, Susan (Harold) their children Shawn and Cole and Lynn (Rob) their children Alex and Katelyn. Marshall was predeceased by his parents, Mike and Dora.
Marshall retired as the Maintenance Manager from Dow Chemical on July 1, 2000 after 25 years. His favourite place to be was either watching his grandchildren play hockey at as many arenas he could get to, or spending time at his beloved Wolf Lake. He will now be the heavenly caretaker always watching over the many fishing holes he frequented and especially circle one where he both camped and were caretakers at for over 50 years.
The family would like to extend thanks to the EMS, RCMP and Fire Department of Fort Saskatchewan.
A Funeral Mass for Marshall will be held Monday, August 23, 2021 at 10:00 AM at Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church, 10004 – 101 St., Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Following the Funeral Mass will be an interment of the urn at City of Fort Saskatchewan Cemetery.
