    Marcel Elbert Jozef Marie Stoffels was an employee in an office. After a period of resistance activities in Apeldoorn, he went into hiding in Roermond when the members of the Dutch army were to be taken prisoner of war again.Through the mediation of Father Ludovicus Adrianus Bleijs (Lodewijk), he came into contact with the engineer Commandant Jules Dewez of the OD district of Roermond. Stoffels became his adjutant. [1] He also acted as a courier for Secretary Moonen of the Diocese of Roermond (Uncle Leo) and helped stranded Allied pilots, distributed illegal writings, and took care of issuing false identity cards. Together with Roermond-based Jan Dahmen and Jacob Janssen, he became a victim of infiltration by V-man Joop de Heus [2]. On June 9, 1944, the SD arrested him in Den Bosch. On August 11, 1944, he was shot in Vught. Cammaert VIII, p. 898. [3]
