Marcel Henry Greyeyes 1942 2021

April 3, 1942 – September 21, 2021
Marcel Henry Greyeyes, age 79, of the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation passed into the glory of his eternal home on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 and is now in the arms of Jesus.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Doris; children: Grant (Corina), Shawna (Danny), Melodie (Gavin); 9 grandchildren: Jamiee, Murray, Yiko, Nipin, Sean, Cheyenne, Benjamin, Jazmin, and Janaya; 3 great-grandchildren: Frankie, Freddie, and Kevin; his brothers, George and Armand; sisters: Sister Cecile and Marie; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Waiting to welcome Marcel are his parents, George and Josephine Greyeyes; his son Marcel Joseph; siblings: Harold, Albert, Helen, Bob, and David.
Marcel served for 26 years in the Canadian Military, serving in Edmonton, Chilliwack, Moose Jaw, Comox, and West Germany. Throughout his career, he played on every sports team and excelled in them all, both in Canada and in Europe. His first year playing golf, at the age of 24, he brought home the championship trophy at the Chilliwack Open. He was honored with the Tom Longboat Award in 1964 and received numerous other trophies and awards throughout his lifetime. Although he was recognized in all sports, to the day he left, he would humbly remark, “I was just an average player.”
Marcel was a devoted husband and Dad who provided everything so we could experience a beautiful life. We camped and traveled throughout Canada and Europe and enjoyed family ski trips and gatherings. He was a proud Mosom, delighting in his grandchildren’s love and achievements, and cherishing their many visits. In his final days, he blessed all his loved ones, each in turn, as he encouraged and spoke lovingly of their future. His thoughts were always on the grandchildren and their well-being.
Marcel touched the hearts of many and will be fondly remembered. He was a man of integrity who was kind and compassionate, a beautiful soul. We have so many wonderful memories that we will cherish forever.
Mom & Dad’s home will be open for anyone who would like to pay their final respects on Thursday and Friday (Sept 23/24) at 2pm-8pm.
