Marcel was born in France and came to England in 1935 at the age of nine. He later served in the French Army. He and his wife Molly, happily married for 62 years, have lived in Great Brington for the past 24 years, but Marcel spent his teenage years living in Sheaf Street, Daventry.
He was deeply loved and will be sadly missed by his wife Molly, daughters Patrice and Ginette, granddaughters, Karen and Laura, and great grandchildren, Maddie, Charlie and Evelyn.
His funeral will take place at Saint Mary’s Church in Great Brington with arrangements to be announced later.
