‘RMC has lost a dear friend’:

LANNAN, Marvin Basil – Suddenly in the company of friends April 7th, 2010, just short of his 74th birthday.

Marv was the father of  16455 Tim Lannan (RMC 1988) – former hockey Redmen; and the grandfather of  the current Cadet Wing Commander & Varsity Men’s Volleyball Team Captain,  24401 Ian Wookey (RMC 2010); and 25132 Matthew Wookey (RMC 2011) – recent recipient of the Cadet Squadron Sports Officer of the Year Award & a varsity basketball player.

Mr Lannan was very proud of his association with the college going back to 1984 when when son Tim was first attracted to RMC  after being actively pursued by then hockey coach, Dr. Wayne Kirk.  There was no bigger and prouder Redmen hockey fan in those days than Marv Lannan.

Over the past 4-5 years Marv was a familiar face at Legacy Dinners; Badging parades; and many other functions around RMC –  mostly to follow the exploits of the two grandsons – Ian and Matthew. Ian is due to graduate next month.

Marv epitomized the friendliness, pride and joy to be found at all college events attended by cadets, staff, and family.  He will be missed by many of us.

As an expression of sympathy, friends who wish may send memorial donations to the RMC Club of Canada Foundation, Panet House Royal Military College, PO Box 1700 STN FORCES, Kingston, ON, K7K 9Z9 (www.rmcclubfoundation.ca).
