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.

I have a picture of Marc on the main wall as people enter my home, of him giving my special needs son the "perseverance" award. I did not know him well but I respected him, found him extremely kind and he was a wonderful man. Very sorry for your loss.
Mark Moo Sang was my RESO Phase 2 course officer for the infantry part of my course in Gagetown 1980. He was a hard task master who instilled self discipline and confidence in the young officer cadets in his care. It was a hard course and he took his role seriously, passing on life and leadership lessons. He earned the respect of all of us. Please accept my sincere condolences.
Je viens d'apprendre la nouvelle. J'aimerais te souhaiter mes plus sincères sympathies à toi et ta famille.
Mes plus sincères condoléances à la famille.
Every once in a while, I take a look back on my life to think about the impact that people I have crossed paths with have had on my life. Needless to say, Marc was one of those key figure that seemed to just have his own gravitational effect on all. He didn't just influence the choices I made but defined my character and how I think as a person.
Marc was an educator, a leader, and overall a straight-shooting, decent human being. While he may not have known it, he provided a backbone for thousands of Canadian youth and firm direction to those he worked with. His drive and dedication to excellence are the epitome of Canadian values.
It's been an honour knowing with you, and I wish we had time to talk about all the literature you gave me.
You will not be forgotten.
We last met at the Commissionaires Ottawa Awards Ceremony where Marc was the star of event. I was honoured to meet you with your family as Marc and I recalled life at CMR and the many times our paths crossed throughout our careers. Marc has left a grand legacy, and we will remember him. My sincerest condolences.
Kind and good friend.
You will be greatly missed.
Our sincerest condolences to Marc’s family, friends and his brothers/sisters-in-arms on his passing. I came to know Marc at CMR and did meet up in the Mess and exercises when serving in Valcartier/la Citadelle. We are now proud to count Marc’s cousin Brian (and Joyce) our next door neighbours from Barrie amongst our friends. Rest in piece dear friend; I enjoyed our short but fruitful friendship.

Toutes mes sympathies à Denise et la famille. Marc a laissé sa marque dans les programme des cadets de l'air.
An incredible man who gave so much of his time to the cadets of 51 squadron, mentoring, guiding and always ready to help them better themselves and to be our future leaders. His organizational skills were unmatched giving incredible opportunities and memories to our young people. Anyone, young and old who had the opportunity to work with him were truly blessed to learn from his example, dedication and hard work. Denise, Isabelle and Stefanie, I will truly miss him.
