Obituary of Rouleau, Marc

Posted by on January 26, 2019

Marc Rouleau

 

March 10, 1941—January 22, 2019

After a life full of adventure, community service and family devotion we lost our amazing father and husband, Marc. Born in Ottawa 77 years ago, Marc was the loving husband of Judy (Parent) and treasured father of Brent (Susie), Lisa (Corey) and Chantal (Brant) and adored grandfather to Melissa, Sabrina, Brayden, Cailyn, Ryder and Jack. He is also survived by brothers Mike and Charles, sisters Claudette, Louise, Sue, Gale, Patsy, Maggie, Rollande, Réjeanne and the late Jocelyne.  Marc married Judy in Ottawa but started his long and successful radio advertising career in Brockville. They quickly integrated into the community through the Kinsmen Club and where they met and formed numerous lifelong friendships. Marc’s radio career advanced quickly and he soon moved his young family back to Ottawa where he worked for many years at the French-language CJRC radio station. While climbing the ranks of the radio executive world, Marc pursued his passion for coaching hockey and ringette in Blackburn Hamlet. Over the course of a long coaching career he was able to coach all of his children. His other passion for golf allowed him and Judy to spend many delightful days on courses all over the region. Eventually, Marc left the radio business to become a successful entrepreneur when he created Promarc Promotions. Marc always wanted to contribute to his community. He joined the Ottawa-Gloucester Sports Club to promote and support amateur sports where he once again formed so many more dear and lasting friendships. As Club President he was able to initiate countless events, tournaments and fundraising activities. He was well-known for his impeccable three-piece suits, his love for the Habs, his exquisite and elegant public speaking and his huge heart. In retirement, when Marc did not have a game of golf lined up, he put his impressive carpentry skills to use around the house and spent time refining his lesser-known but remarkable drawing skills. Later in life, Marc pursued and attained a special goal to acquire his CPGA Professional Golfer qualifications. Through it all, he devoted countless hours and so much love to Judy, his children and grandchildren, often marvelling and beaming with pride at their every achievement and accomplishments in sports or life in general. The family extends their deepest appreciation to the ICU staff at the General Hospital for their commitment to Marc’s care.  Relatives and friends are invited to the Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Road to pay their respects to the family on Monday, January 28, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  A celebration of Marc’s life will then be held in the Heritage Funeral Complex chapel at 4 p.m. with a reception to follow Friends and family are welcome to make a contribution to the Ottawa Heart Institute in memoriam.

Obituary of JANAWAY, Travis David

Posted by on January 11, 2019

Travis David Janaway

September 6, 1972 – January 5, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Travis Janaway on January 5th, 2019.   A loving husband and devoted father, Travis will be sadly missed by his wife Kristine, daughters Victoria and Kaitlynn and dad, Dave (Myrna). Forever loved by uncle Charlie (Marsha), sister-in-law Nadia (Fabio), niece Mikaela, nephew Francesco, mother-in-law Marianne, and the many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends whose lives he touched.

Travis was predeceased by his brother Rodney and mom Roberta (Bobbi) Janaway.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba September 6, 1972, Travis inherited a love of sports, participating in hockey, baseball and golf throughout his youth.

Travis began his career in the transportation industry working for Purolator Courier in Winnipeg Manitoba. Recruited by Dicom, Travis accepted a management position and he and Kristine moved to Mississauga, Ontario in 1996. Along with a partner and close friend, Travis opened Express Distribution Services in Barrie, Ontario in 1999 to fill a void within the transportation industry. The company grew and garnered much success with Travis in command, ultimately leading to a merger with Muskoka Delivery Service in 2007 where he remained for the duration of his career. Fondly referred as the “human map”, he was well liked and respected within the industry, Everyone that had the privilege of working with Travis throughout his career would agree he was dedicated and had an unwavering worth ethic.

A dedicated family man, Travis and Kristine moved to Barrie in 2001 to start their family. Daughter Victoria arrived November 13, 2002 with daughter Kaitlynn following on January 9, 2006. Travis shared his love of sports with his girls enrolling them in softball at a young age, and then coaching them as they continued to excel in the sport. Summers were all about ball, but for Travis, he would not have it any other way. On any given night if you didn’t see him at a practice or game, you could find him with his daughters on the front lawn practicing their pitching.

Involved in community, Travis was an active coach and mentor with the Barrie and District Girls Softball association. His dedication and enthusiasm followed him from the job to the playing field. For Travis, this was not just about the game, but about family and friendships extending beyond one season.

He will be greatly missed by all.

Friends may call at ADAMS FUNERAL HOME (445 St. Vincent Street, Barrie) on Saturday from 1-4 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 1 o’clock p.m. with visitation from 12 p.m. Memorial Donations to Seasons Centre for Grieving Children would be appreciated. Messages of condolence may be forwarded through adamsfuneralhome.ca
