Marc Brisbourne, R.I.P. Great Friend

A dear friend of mine passed away recently. When I think back to the great times in Edmonton, a lot of the time it was directly related to hanging with Marc. Marc you will be sorely missed.



February 14, 1970 – February 2, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, son and brother Marc.

He will be forever remembered by his wife Constanza, son Matias, and daughter Luciana; mother Joan; sister Sandy and brother-in-law Brad Reinbold, niece Emery, and nephew Cobe. He will also be remembered by his Argentinean family: father-in-law Dr. Armando Pacher, and mother-in-law Cachita Pacher; sisters-in-law Paula and Mariana; brothers-in-law Natalio and Alejo, and nephews Nicolas and Gonzalo; and his faithful friend Buckley.

Marc graduated with a Master’s Degree in Design from the University of Alberta. He was passionate about design research and education. Most recently a faculty member at MacEwan University; he was well respected by his colleagues, students and the design community. He was an avid outdoorsman, a dedicated husband and father. His generousity of spirit and his kindness will be missed by everyone that knew him.
