On January 26, 2006 the Service de Sécurité Incendie de Montréal said good bye to Capt. Marcel Marleau. While a large number of off-duty firefighters from Montreal and many other departments attended the funeral at Notre-Dame Basilica the on-duty personal also paid their respects to their departed colleague.
Each station moved their apparatus in front of the station and at 11:00, the hour that Capt. Marleau's funeral started, with the apparatus lights flashing the personnel observed a moment of silence.
At station 61 in Dollard des Ormeaux units 131, 461 and 261 and their crews as well as the divisional secretary and prevention staff paid their respects on a bright, crisp day.
