VERRIER, Marc January 28, 1957 - August 10, 2013 It is with great sorrow that Marc's family announces his untimely death at the age of 56. After a courageous year long battle with leukemia, Marc passed away at home in Victoria surrounded by his loving family: wife Mercedes; daughters Lauren, Chloe, Dana and son Joey; parents Romeo and Rose; sisters Gisèle (Raymond) and Joanne and brothers Gilbert (Gisèle), Gerald and Robert (Susan). Marc was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, and upon graduation from the University of Manitoba in 1977, moved to Toronto. At age 29, on the strength of his intelligence, integrity, discipline and focus, Marc founded and then led a very successful company, Genesis Financial Products. Marc loved to golf, read, walk, bike, discuss and further his knowledge on numerous topics. He enjoyed nature and spent many happy years living on an acreage in the countryside of Caledon, Ontario. Three years ago, Marc relocated to Victoria to be closer to family, enjoy semi-retirement and spend more time on the golf course. Sadly he had only two short years to do so prior to his diagnosis. Marc was generous, selfless and kind-hearted. He had the most wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh. During his illness he maintained his positive attitude, his determination and his interest in everyone else. He remained a model of strength, calm and dignity throughout his ordeal. We love you, Marc. You will remain forever in our hearts. Please honor Marc's memory by making a donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (www.llscanada.org/#/waystohelp/donate/ )
