GUY P. LACROIX
He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife of 63 years Agnes (née Thorimbert), his children, Marilyne (Mark) LeClair and Jacqueline (Lucien) Dubois; his grandchildren, Matthew (Tracey), Jason and Nicolas; his great grandchildren, Sydni and David and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
Guy was predeceased by his parents Paul and Germaine as well as his twin brother Denis and godson Raymond.
Guy was very successful in the many endeavours he pursued throughout his life, always taking time to meet and talk with people along the way. He was passionate about teaching, seeing the value of education, knowledge and a second language as a means for opportunities. He was also a strong voice against bullying. Dad loved farming and was fortunate to share it with his twin brother Denis. He learned to ski at 55, and was still skiing at 75 years of age. He enjoyed curling and music. His greatest pride and joy however was his family. He was the greatest supporter for his grandchildren. He travelled the province cheering them on whether at curling rinks, hockey rinks or music festivals.

My favourite history teacher. Enjoyed partying and music singalongs with Agnes and the St Claude party crowd of the “good old days" R I P my friend - Posted by: Hank Dupasquier (Friend and former student) on: May 30, 2021
Dear Agnes, Marilyn, Jacqueline and family. Guy was a great man for the short time I have known him. From his friendly demeanor to his 5 min chats that turned into an hour of great laughs and him telling me about grass and soil. A true farmer at heart and educator as he did not like the way they taught math in school these days. His chats will be missed and his waves from his driveway. Take care, mes sympathies. Love you all. - Posted by: Jean-Charles Trudeau (Neighbor and Friend) on: May 29, 2021
I will definitely miss the stories that he shared with us in Lucien's basement. His farming experiences and skiing stories will be missed forever. A good guy that left us way too early. My condolences go out to Agnes and to the Lacroix family. - Posted by: Gerry and Jane Dubois (Friend) on: May 29, 2021
M. Lacroix was a favourite math teacher in High School. Will never forget his fun anecdotes and his jokes about his half-pinkie from a farm accident. Such a kind and patient teacher especially for Grade 9 algebra! Fond memories of living down the street from them and playing with Jacqueline & Marilyne in our yards. My sincere condoleances to the family during this difficult time. - Posted by: Janine Milani (nee Beaudry) (former student) on: May 29, 2021
