MARCEL A. MOLLOT
MARCH 27, 1940 – NOVEMBER 23, 2022
Peacefully, on November 23, 2022, Dr. Marcel A. Mollot passed away in his home, surrounded by family, after a short, courageous battle with cancer.
Marcel loved and was loved by his devoted wife, Louise, of 59 years; children Roland, Michelle (Mark), Yvette (Alain), Roger (Pauline); and his grandchildren, Liam, Emma, Grace, Arlo, and Josée.
Raised in Starbuck, Manitoba, Marcel moved to Winnipeg to pursue his studies in dentistry, graduating in 1963. He started his practice and touched many people’s lives during his 34 years of service. His commitment to his patients and staff and his integrity as a businessman were extraordinary. Consequently, he was a positive example and role model for his family and friends.
Marcel was generous and actively involved in his community, sharing his time and resources. He volunteered as a coach for his children’s sports teams, was involved in church activities, and was an active member of the church choir for 35 years. In addition, he was a longstanding member of the Knights of Columbus. Marcel was especially kind to many friends and family members who needed his support, including his cousin Ray, whom he had cared for over 30 years.
Marcel was a very active man who loved golfing, biking, curling, pickleball, and skiing. He travelled across North America, Europe, and Asia with Louise and their many friends and enjoyed many memorable family holidays. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brother Rene and his sons Roland and Roger. Marcel was very close to his brother Rene – sharing many adventures over the years, always laughing heartily, and working hard to stay awake on their long drives home.
Marcel’s love of food, cooking, and gardening has inspired his family to enjoy creating good food and eating together. He was fond of family celebrations, especially at the cottage. Bacon and eggs on the deck, his famous ribs, Caesar salad, and prime rib were among his specialties. The cottage was a sacred space for Marcel, rich in memories with friends and family. Summers at the cottage included warm memories of games, reading to his grandchildren, playing Charades, and blueberry picking.
Through the years, Marcel and Louise developed a close circle of friends. Together they enjoyed travel, sports activities, theatre, celebrations, and church events. They supported each other through good times and bad, especially with laughter. It was inspiring to see the love and support that Marcel’s friends and family provided during his illness.
Mass of the Resurrection will be on November 30, 2022, at 11:00 am at St. Paul the Apostle Church, 2400 Portage Ave. Winnipeg.
Special thanks to Fr. Eric Giddins for his compassion and care and to all the people that supported Marcel and his family during this difficult time.
In the spirit of Marcel’s generosity, donations can be made to Siloam Mission or Rossbrook House in lieu of flowers.
