Rock Marc Poulin

In Montreal, on April 29, 2020 died at the age of 90 Mr. Rock M. Poulin

He is survived by his beloved wife (Yolande Danis), his 3 children Micheline (Pierre-André), Manon (Louis) and Rocky (Anna), his grandchildren Gabrielle, Stephanie, Dominic, Caroline, Isabelle and Julien, as well as his great-grandchildren and several nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Rock, we are saddened by your departure, but we have so many happy memories. You have been for us a loving father, always ready to lend a hand and guide us. In addition to being generous, intellectual, passionate, devoted to the happiness of his family, patient, very skilled in cabinet making, carpentry and gardening you also put humor in our lives. It was always a pleasure to discuss with him current issues and his extraordinary international anecdotes. It is with great regret that this enthusiast of Geology and Photography has left us. With his name assigned to the great hydroelectric works of this world he leaves an incredible image of his passion for geology in the realization of major civil works.

In addition to his global geological contributions, Rock continued to teach his love of geology to his co-workers and the people around him. Today, many Tunisian, Chinese, Indian and other geologists have great esteem for this dedicated man.

The geological community of Quebec and Canada today mourns the loss of a Giant. A Giant appreciated by his peers, who has received numerous honorary distinctions such as the Medal of Honor of Quebec, received from the Governor General of Quebec.

Rock, we carry your values and we will remember forever your courage and resilience. Now, you are without pain, without fear and without suffering. Rest in peace, our dear father and beloved friend.

Your expressions of sympathy can be translated in the form of a donation to a heart foundation of your choice.
Due to the present situation, funeral services will be held at a later date to be determined.

Rock était pour nous, les plus jeunes .... un aventurier des temps modernes avec ses nombreux voyages à l’étranger pour sont travail mais pour nous de la Côte Nord , c’est vraiment le barrage MANICOUAGAN 5 , qui fait de lui un des vrais de vrais BÂTISSEURS D’EAU et restera pour nous tout un monument à sa mémoire . Nos plus sincères sympathies à tous.

To Rock's family, Rock has been my neighbor at Lac Sir John for almost 40 years. He has been a wonderful neighbor, so helpful to the lake community and so curious of all that was going on. When I had a new septic system created 18 years ago, he, without my knowing this, took pictures every day and then printed and gave them to me. I see his house through the trees every day and each day have been checking to see when he would return from Karela. The news of his passing has been very shocking and sad for me.
