It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Major (ret’d) Marc Moo Sang announces his passing on November 22, 2022 at the age of 68 after a year-long courageous battle with bladder cancer. He is survived by his beloved wife, Denise, his cherished children Stefanie (Jonathan) and Isabelle (Ryan), his adored grandchildren, Mia, Théo, Fiona, Winston, Bristol, Maxime, and many nephews, nieces, cousins, family and friends. He was the loving brother of Marie José and Célyne.
Marc will be remembered as a loving husband, a proud father and grandfather, a brother, uncle and dear friend. A man with a big heart, he was humble, genuine, generous and benevolent who never hesitated to share his wisdom. Throughout his life and career he built a reputation as an exceptional leader and was recognized for his dedication and service toward those around him. Bon vivant, his life was filled with adventures and travels that he passionately shared with his family.
The family would like to thank the teams of the oncology and neurosurgery division at the Ottawa Hospital and Home and Community Care Services Champlain and the Orleans Palliative Care team. A donation can be made in his memory at:
Family and friends are invited to gather in the Sacred Space of the Beechwood National Memorial Centre, 280 Beechwood Ave. on Monday May 8th 2023 after 12 noon. A Memorial Service will be held at 1p.m. followed by urn burial at the National Military Cemetery of the Canadian Forces and reception.

Chère Denise, Stéfanie, Isabelle, ainsi que tous les proches de Marc - je tiens à vous envoyer mes plus sincères condoléances. Marc et moi avons gradués ensemble du CMR en 1980. Nous étions vraiment de grands compagnons d’études et nous avons partagés les responsabilités de guider l’escadron Saint Laurent pendant notre dernière année au CMR. J’en garde de magnifiques souvenirs.
Repose en paix cher Marc!

Chère Denise, nous sommes grandement attristés par cette nouvelle. Marc était non seulement un compagnon d’armes mais un ami sincère qui a laissé sa marque. On garde le souvenir d’une personne joviale, intègre et chaleureuse. Nos pensées sont pour toi et les filles car vous formiez un noyau familial très serré. Bon courage.
My deepest condolences. I was honored to know Marc during our time together on the Army Staff. He was one of a kind and I am deeply saddened to hear of his untimely passing. He was a true gentleman and I have no doubt that he left a great legacy for friends and family alike. He will be missed ... RIP old friend.
My deepest sympathy to Marc's family and friends. I remember him fondly as the Regimental Adjutant with the Airborne in both Petawawa and Cyprus. Blue skies, fair.winds and soft landings. May he RIP.
My deepest condolences to the family. I had the honor of working with Marc when he was the Captain of the new Commissionaire section for the Centre Block project. It is hard to overstate how instrumental Marc's leadership was in those early days of the project. He has made a lasting impact on the people he worked with, and will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace Marc.
Cela est avec un grand regret que j'ai lu cette annonce. J'ai eu la chance et l'opportunité de servir avec lui. Mes sincères sympathies à toutes les familles éprouvées par cette très grande perte.
Major(ret) Yves Pedneault RCEME
