Marcel Baumet

January 29, 1935 – January 11, 2020
Marcel passed away in NRGH after a lengthy battle with dementia. Having been born and raised in Nice, France and having moved first to England and then to Canada is his 20’s, Marcel’s life was peppered with interesting experiences and occupational pursuits. Marcel was a quiet, thoughtful man and remains, in the minds of so many, a gentle soul in his treatment of others.
He will be forever missed by his wife, Diana Lynn (Kirkpatrick) Baumet, her children, Russ (Krista) Munson and Julia (Trevor) Stoesz, as well as the rest of her extended family. In addition, he leaves to mourn his son, David Lachlan Baumet (Cheryl), several grandchildren and a sister, Danielle Baumet.
Marcel was predeceased by his wife, Norma (King) Baumet after 42 years of marriage, his son, Dale Patrick Baumet and his parents, Charles Leon and Josephine Baumet of Nice.
Special thanks is extended to the staff at the NRGH for the care they provided him in the last 6 months of his life.
As requested by Marcel, there will be no memorial service, but expressions of thoughts and memories are welcome. To honour Marcel’s memory, please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer Society to support the ongoing effort to eradicate this cruel disease.
