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.

We're just on our way to the visitation at Beechwood and I almost forgot pen and paper. Than's one small lesson Marc instilled in those he worked with, mentored and served as a team member alongside: be prepared and ready to take notes. I still would have remembered to "adapt and overcome" in my dedication "be 15 minutes early, or you're 15 minutes late"; two more of Marc's gems. There were many many more that left me, and I'm sure many others, with a firmly entrenched set of great memories of who he was ... and continues to be.
I heard of the news today - may 9, 2023. My sincerest and deepest sympathies to his friends and family. I knew Maj. Marc Moo Sang from my time in cadets when I was in my early teens. He was always around and sharing his wisdom with myself and others. I'll be forever grateful for having knows him and will miss his words of encouragement. RIP Maj Moo Sang.
