2013 Deceased Member — Marc Verrier

In Memory of Marc Verrier

Marc Verrier passed away on August 10, 2013 at home in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada surrounded by his loving family after a yearlong battle with Leukemia. He is survived by his wife Mercedes, his son Joey, his three daughters Lauren, Chloe and Dana, his parents Romeo and Rose, his siblings Gisele, Gilbert, Joanne, Gerald and Robert.

Marc was born January 28, 1957 in St. Boniface, Manitoba, Canada the third of six children. He grew up there and graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1977 with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Actuarial Science. He became a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries in 1980. Marc worked at Manulife for a number of years rising in the ranks of life and annuity product management before striking out on his own to start a consultancy at the young age of 29. In a few short years, he morphed that business into a product development shop where he could truly leave his mark of brilliant innovation and design on the life and annuity product market. Marc founded Genesis Financial Products, a very successful market and product development company that serves major U.S. life insurance company clients - his integrity, intelligence, discipline and focus are ingrained in every aspect of the company's rich heritage and he built a foundation for success which will serve the company’s clients for many years to come.

Marc adored the game of golf and in the last decade of his life applied the same attributes that served him so well in business to that pursuit. He was an avid student of everything he found interesting, and unfailingly worked toward mastery of those subjects. He took great interest in other people and always looked for new possibilities, different ways to see and mold the world, whether for work, professional or personal endeavors. When it came to family and friends, Marc brought the same intense passion to bear and he was able to help others see new paths or better approaches, intent on building a brighter future for all.
