Remembering Duane Fournier

It is with great sadness as we learn of the death of a long-time VICA Member Duane Roger Fournier of Fournier Excavating.

Duane served as Board Chair of the Mid-Island Construction Association (MICA) from 2001 – 2002 and again in 2007 – 2008, serving on the MICA Board from 2000 to 2011. Born into construction, Duane took over operations of the company from his parents Sid and Dorothy in 2005, spending his entire career with the company.

Duane was a familiar face around the construction community in the Nanaimo area and his absence will be truly missed. Duane is survived by his wife of 16 years, Marcia, parents Sid and Dorothy, sisters Diana (Greg), Denise (Brian), and nephews Erick and Chase.

On behalf of the Vancouver Island Construction Association staff, board and members, we send our deepest condolences to Duane’s family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held in his honour Saturday, January 28 from 1-4 p.m. at the Nanaimo Golf Club.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Birds of Prey, Wildlife Recovery, or Wild Arc.
