Memorable Manitobans: Marcel Gauthier (1943-1999)


His career in broadcasting began in 1963 with the Canadian Armed Forces, after which he returned to Canada to a sales and management position with the Centre culturel, the newspaper La Liberté and returned to broadcasting with CBC/Radio Canada for 20 years. He acted with le Cercle Molière and the Canadian Armed Forces Europe. He was a member of the choir Les Intrépides and was the voice of the Winnipeg Jets for several years. He served as Master of Ceremonies for the Festival du Voyageur and other cultural, government, and private functions. He moved to Germany in 1987 to work for CBC International Radio, returning to Canada five years later to an administrative position with the CBC. He died of cancer at Winnipeg on 21 September 1999 and was buried in the St. Boniface Cemetery.
