Marcel Savard, who we lovingly called “Mouse“, passed away peacefully on April 18, 2023, at the age of 63.
His battle with cancer took him from us fast and furiously. He leaves behind his beloved daughter Lisa Kitzmann, who he always referred to as “the best thing he ever did”.
Preceded in death by his father, Wilfred Savard, he is survived by his mother Aurelie, and his siblings, Suzanne (Larry), Pat (Rene), Gerry (Debbie), Raymond (Jeannine), and Gilles (Naomi); along with many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends.
Born on March 26, 1960, in St Boniface, Manitoba, Marcel spent his childhood surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. He lived a quiet life for the most part, preferring to stay out of the spotlight. He was known for his independence and resourcefulness, always finding his own way to handle things.
His passions included: cheering on his favourite hockey teams, admiring muscle cars, and indulging in his all-time favourite food: pizza. He had a deep appreciation for classic rock music and took pride in his stereo equipment, always seeking out the best sound quality. Marcel was content with the simple things. He liked an occasional beer with friends and cherished spending time with family, rarely missing a gathering or holiday event.
Despite his quiet demeanor, his impact on those around him was significant. Mouse had a gentle heart and a warm smile. His hugs smelled of tobacco and his eyes would twinkle when he laughed.
He was loved.
A private family funeral will be held to honour Marcel’s life.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marcel’s memory to the Riverview Health Centre Foundation or to CancerCare Manitoba.
We will miss you forever Mouse.
See you on the other side of the stars.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
A beautiful obituary for a beloved gentle person. I did not really know “Mouse”… Lionel called him that also when he recalled those growing up memories you all shared … but I pray that his soul now rests in peace and that the family finds comfort in the love and hope offered and in recalling those precious and fond memories. God speed you to Heaven, Mouse. - Posted by: Yvette. (Cousin in-law) on: May 02, 2023
