On July 4, 2019 at the age of 76 after a lengthy illness we lost Guy, our Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Uncle and Brother.
He will be missed and remembered by his wife Cecile (née Cyr) of 54 years, his sons, Roland (Pete) and Daniel (Christine), six grandchildren, André (Brandi), Denise (Devon), Robyn (Diane), Angela, Alyssa and Janelle (Ryan), seven great-grandchildren, Colbie, Landon, Daniel, Kaylee, Aubree, Beau and Rémi, sisters Jeanne Gendron, Cecile (Clement) Bisson, Irène Fournier and Hélène (Napoléon) Langelier, numerous nephews and nieces and many friends. He was predeceased by his parents, siblings, Louis, Annette, Henri, Rita, Paul, Simone, Yvonne, Raymond, Lucille.
Guy was raised in La Broquerie. After high school he started a 35-year career with Manitoba Hydro. After retiring from Hydro, he worked with RV Anderson installing fibre optic lines across Canada along with his brothers. He was always involved in each community the family stationed in. Hockey and baseball also ran through his veins whether it was playing, watching or voicing his opinions on plays. The nature of his jobs took his family to many different places. He enjoyed travelling overseas and in their trailer across North America. He loved spending time at the lake with family and friends fishing, making new memories or reminiscing about the good old days. Known to his grandchildren as Pépère and Grandpa, he treasured them and was very active in their lives. He was most proud of all their accomplishments. His family was his life.
A funeral mass celebrating his life will be held on Saturday, July 13 at 1:00 p.m. at Sainte Famille, 778 Archibald St.
