With heavy hearts and cherished memories we are saddened to announce the passing of our much beloved husband, father and coach, Guy Montreuil.
On December 3rd at 11:11pm, while being held by his loving family, Guy answered the call to cross the threshold of life and enter into eternal light.
Guy is survived by Diane, his dancing partner and bride of 25 years, his sons Steve (Shari), Christopher (Megan), Matthew (Alena), and daughter Emma, brothers Mitch (Lyn), André (Shelley), sister Janet (Robert), and granddaughter Emma. Born in Lachine, Quebec, Guy was predeceased by parents Rodolph and Shirley (Smail) and granddaughter Mia.
Guys love for carpentry and passion for baseball led him to touch so many lives. With his hard work, humour and humility, he was always quick to lend a helping hand. Guy will be missed by all those who had the pleasure of meeting him.
A bilingual funeral service will be held at Église Immaculée-Conception, located at 99 Garnet Street, St.Catharines at 11:00am Saturday, December 7th, preceded by visitation at 10:30am.
A luncheon of life will follow at 1:00pm at Guy’s second home, the Grantham Optimist Club, where he proudly coached for 18 years and had been a member for 11 years. The club is located at 188 Linwell Road, St.Catharines.
In lieu of flowers, the family will have a donation box available at the luncheon, for a memorial gift to be made in Guys honour. All donations collected will ensure local children the ability to enjoy the sport he loved.
“It’s okay Coach Guy, we will take it from here.”
