Marchand, Timothy “Tim”
Words cWindsorStarFrame copyan’t even explain how heavy and saddened our hearts are at this time to announce the passing of our beloved Tim at the age of 49. He leaves behind his best friend, soul mate and love of his life, his wife Michelle. Cherished dad and step dad to Jason (Kaitlin), Courtney, Brittany, Alisha, Samantha (Trevor) and Zachary. Special “Pa” to his grandson Nathan. He will be deeply missed by his parents Victor and Jeannette Marchand as well as his mother in law Ann Drouillard.

He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by his father-in-law Gerald Drouillard as well as all his grandparents. Special thank you to his nurse Lori Bachynski for going above and beyond with Tim’s care during this journey – I know it wasn’t always easy. Kinsey, Jenny and Noah from Rivera Nursing, CCAC for making sure Tim had what he needed, Dr. Morvay for your compassion and all the time you took with him when he needed it, Dr. Gall and the staff of Hospice for your outstanding care and the Cancer Centre of Windsor. Tim was a caring and gentle man who enjoyed life. He loved spending time on the water in his boat and casting a line. He loved cheering on his favourite teams whether it was hockey, football or baseball. In keeping with Tim’s wishes, I ask that you not wear black to the funeral home or wear a suit as he hated that and thought it was too depressing and stuffy. He always felt that you should celebrate someone’s life and that celebration is reflected in colour.
