The community has come together to mourn the passing of a Lamont paramedic.
Marc Moebis was born in Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan, and spent most of his childhood growing up near Beechy on his family farm.
He met his high school sweetheart, Nicole, in 1991 when his family moved to Didsbury and the two married years later, staying together for 19 years. They had two daughters and a son, Jessica, Megan and Mason, as well as an honourary son, Nick.
Moebis passed away suddenly on Oct.12 at the age of 40, leaving behind not only his wife and kids but also his parents, siblings and a large and loving extended family.
"My dad's passion for life was contagious," said his daughter Megan. "He showed me that even when I was struggling, there was always something to be happy about."
Friends described him as an outdoorsman who loved camping, boating, exploring with his family or working on his '68 GTO. However, he was described even more as a family man devoted to his wife and children.
"My dad taught me strength. He taught me how to carry myself with confidence, and he taught me how to believe in and love myself."
Moebis was a paramedic, serving the communities of Rimbey, Provost, Vermilion, Elk Point and Lamont. He was a strong advocate for mental health awareness and support in the industry, creating the HELP (Help Every Local Paramedic) Fund and acting as a pillar of strength for other healthcare workers.
A memorial service was held for him at the Dow Centennial Centre on Wednesday (Oct.20).
