GUY ROLAND DORGE
August 7, 1952 - June 28, 2021
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandpa, brother and friend, Guy Dorge, on June 28, 2021 at Riverview Health Centre.
Guy will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife of 47 years, Lorna; son Daryl (James); daughter Leanne (Jason); son Adam (Tiffany); grandchildren Anika and Liam; sisters, Adele, Evelyn (Bob), Denise, Lucille, Jacqueline (Louis), Gisele (Allan) and Jeanette (Gilbert); brothers, Roger (Terry) and Tom (Jodi); in-laws, Arlene Dorge, Andy Degagne, John Sandberg (Vivian), Paul Sandberg (Bonnie), Garth Sandberg (Diane) along with their families, as well as many nieces and nephews. Guy was predeceased by his mother, Solange (Lapointe); father, Adelard; brothers Marc and Aime; sister Diana and brothers-in-law, Paul Nolette, Ken Bruce and Edward Degagne. Also by his father and mother-in-law, John and Dorothy Sandberg.
Guy retired after 38 years working for CPR along with his father-in-law and several close friends. During Covid, he missed Friday breakfasts with his co-workers. He cherished his time at the cabin in St. Laurent with his family, enjoying the sunsets, playing on the beach with his grandkids, and listening to country music. During the flood of 2011, he formed a lasting friendship with his neighbour Paul. Guy was so looking forward to this summer lakeside.
Guy loved his family. He was incredibly proud of his children and their partners. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. We have many great memories that we will cherish of camping trips and family socials with his "memorable dance moves". He was a huge fan of the Jets. We know he will be watching with Aime. However, nothing lit up his eyes more than being with his grandkids, who he adored and who adored him. No words can explain how much joy would fill his heart when being with Anika and Liam, no matter how he was feeling.
His final battle showed his tough and stubborn side while still finding as many moments he could to make sure his family knew how much he loved them.
We will always remember your smile.
We miss and love you so much Dad.
Thank you to family who were there to support and make each day less difficult. Also thank you to the many doctors and staff that assisted in Guy's care. A special thank you to Dr. Harlos and Marissa from CancerCare.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
No funeral service will be held.
"Sadly missed along life's way,
quietly remembered every day…
no longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you are always there." Unknown author.

Guy will be sadly missed at the Friday morning breakfast meeting. We all enjoyed his stories and banter. - Posted by: John Boychuk (Friend and co-worker ) on: Jul 03, 2021
Met Guy working at CP rail. He was a hard worker and a talented one. We spent many hours together at work and got along well together. I lost track of him when I retired and I often thought of him and hoped we would run into each other again. Thank you for all the good memories and for being a close friend all those years. May you rest in peace. Jim - Posted by: jim l'esperance (friend) on: Jul 03, 2021
So very sorry for your loss. I love the picture you chose. Shows his beautiful smile perfectly. Uncle Guy was such a great, caring man. My kids don’t know him as uncle Guy, they know him as “Candy Man”. Every time they would see him at my parents he always had candy in his pockets for them. He always spoke to them and asked them questions and was interested in what they had to say in return. He will be missed deeply by everyone who knew him. Sending you all big hugs.🙏 Lotsa Love ❤️ Lise - Posted by: Lise (Niece) on: Jul 03, 2021
