Marcel Pepin dies at 65

Warner Bros. studio electrician

Marcel Pepin, a studio electrician who worked in the electrical department of Warner Bros. studios for 35 years, died March 13 of heart failure at his home in Burbank. He was 65.

A native of Three Rivers, Quebec, Canada, he moved to Alaska in 1957 and two years later relocated to Burbank and the Warner Bros. lot, where he worked until 1994, retiring as foreman of the electrical shop.

He is survived by two sons, seven grandchildren and his longtime companion, Rusty Gratson.

Family suggests donations in Pepin’s name be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
