REGINA — Reginans are paying tribute to Dan Marce who died with his family at his side in Regina early Wednesday morning.

The 66-year-old suffered multiple injuries after he was struck by a vehicle Friday night while on vacation with his wife, Jan, and friends in the Cayman Islands.

Marce initially received medical care in the Caymans, but was later transported via air ambulance to a Miami hospital and then transferred to Regina.

“We’re very saddened and we knew that it was very serious and it would be tough for him to make it through,” said Jim Hopson, the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ president and CEO. “You always hope … We think about Dan, but we also think about his sons. We’re going to miss him. He was a big part of what we did with the Plaza (of Honor) and he did a lot of work on the history books. He’s going to be missed.”

Bob Hughes, former executive editor of the Leader-Post, knew Marce for years through numerous sports activities and later as a publisher.

“We were part of the same golf group at the Wascana,” Hughes said. “The first project he and I did together was the history of the Regina Rams. He was a great publisher. He was just relentless in keeping me on deadlines.”

Later, Hughes spent countless days collaborating with Marce on The Big Dig: The Miracle of Wascana Centre.

“We were at the Saskatchewan Archives and I think we looked at about 6,000 pictures,” Hughes said. “He just had a remarkable record of achievement in the publishing business.”

Marce was also a good friend to many people, Hughes reflected.

“If you needed something, he would do it for you,” Hughes said. “He was as stubborn as a donkey. If he got something in his mind, he would not let it go until it happened. But usually he was right. If you had him on your side in any kind of project, you didn’t have to worry about anything.”
