Roderick Francis Marche
   Sydney Mines

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Roderick Francis Marche on Thursday, May 7,2020, at Miner’s Memorial Manor, with his loving family by his side. Born in Port aux Port on July 12,1929, he was the son of the late James and Edith (Prado) Marche.
His passions were with autobody mechanics, as he was employed with Mike Steele’s Irving, Iannetti Brothers, H. B. Nickerson, and the Town of Sydney Mines.
Roddie enjoyed family, friends, helping anyone who needed his help, camping, travelling the Atlantic Provinces, and most of all, Newfoundland.
Roddie is survived by his son Wayne, and daughter Sharon MacDougall (formerly Burton). He is also survived by grandson Marc (Jaclyn) and their daughters Olivia, Harlow and Harper, his granddaughter Carolyn and grandson Wayne Michael and his son Ethan, his brother Gilbert and sisters Shirley, Joan and Sadie, also many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Roddie was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Thora (Harvey) son Boyde, great-grandson baby Owen Burton, sister Rona and brothers Ricky, Joe and Seanie.
The family would like to thank Dr. Doug Kolhsmith and the staff at Miner’s Memorial Manor for the professional, compassionate care that was given to our father.
Cremation has taken place. A funeral Mass to celebrate the life of Roddie Marche will take place at a later date. Donations in Roddie’s memory may be made to the Feral and Abandoned Cat Society, PO Box 85, 269 Charlotte St., Sydney, NS
