Obituary of Marcel Peter Huyge

HUYGE, Marcel Peter 

January 18, 1941 – March 12, 2022

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Peter, surrounded by his family, on Saturday, March 12, 2022, at the age of 81. Beloved husband of Cheri (nee Arthur), with whom he shared 54 beautiful years of marriage. Forever loved and adored father of Lynn (Mark), Bryan and Kathy. Grandfather of Mackenzie and Mayah. Greatly missed by Spike and Oscar. Predeceased by his parents Marcel and Fernetta Huyge (nee McCormick). Dear brother of Pat (Steve) Ruppert, late Anne (surviving husband Roger) Vanhoucke, Karl (Rose) Huyge, Pauline (late Ed) Loncke, late Michael (surviving wife Sheila) Huyge, and Jim (Rosemary) Huyge. Special brother-in-law of Patricia (late Andy) DeBruyne. Deeply missed by his special cousins Frankie Huyge and Cecil Bailey, whom he visited with often. A special appreciation for nephew, Father Ben Huyge, for the peace, comfort and prayers given to Uncle Pete in his last hours. Peter will never be forgotten by many more cousins, nieces, nephews, friends. Peter and Cheri were lucky to have enjoyed many years of retirement together. They especially enjoyed the hours spent attending car shows and riding in his '61 Impala. Many nights were spent together watching the sunset at the Leamington dock. Peter was a strong man, both in will and in character, and his loss has left a void in all those who loved him.

In keeping with Peter’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date. In his honour, donations may be made by cheque to Erie Shores Hospice (Hospice Erie Shores Campus). Arrangements entrusted to Reid Funeral Home, Leamington, 519-326-2631.
