September 30, 1975 - May 24, 2022

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Christopher Dale Guimond on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at the age of 47.
Chris was born September 30, 1975, to parents Edward Fontaine and Rita Guimond in Pine Falls, Manitoba. Chris was the youngest of four siblings and the only son of Rita. He was also an awesome brother, uncle, friend, and fiancé.
His memories will forever live on in the hearts of his family: his mother Rita, his sisters Lillian and Susan, brother-in-law Donald, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and two great-great nephews. He will especially be missed by his special niece Aliyeh. He was predeceased by his father Eddie, grandparents, Joe and Dora Guimond, as well his aunts, Annette and Elaine, his sister Dora and brother Murray.
Chris grew up in Sagkeeng First Nation and at an early age, he was already extremely intelligent to the point where he skipped grades in grade two and junior high school. In high school, he enjoyed playing lacrosse and during lunch break, he would play dungeons and dragons. He was the youngest to graduate high school at the age of 16. He went on to further his education at Bemidji State University in Bemidji, Minnesota.
He returned to his home community where he worked at the Northern store as the manager and in his spare time he coached Lacrosse. He taught himself to play the guitar and to his family's surprise he could sing as well.
He started his career as an I.T. while being employed at Sagkeeng Anicinabe High school. He continued being I.T. with the Manitoba First Nation Education Resource Centre and he was quickly promoted. He volunteered with Just TV where they named a volunteer award in his honor.
Chris will forever be known as a fun-loving and humorous guy. We love you with all our hearts.
Wake service will be held at the St. Alexander Roman Catholic Hall on Sunday, June 5 to June 8, 2022. Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, at 1:00 pm. Interment in the church cemetery.

  • My condolences to his family and friends. Chris was one of the very first people I met at MFNERC. Very kind loving and extremely funny. His loud voice can be heard every time i got near the lunchroom. “You gotta try this!” He would always suggest something for me to tell my husband to cook or order from! He supported all of us with his kind words and loving manner. I'm going to miss my bday buddy. When my bday comes I'm going to make sure i donate to a special cause in his name. That's what he would love to do. Miigwetch for your teaching of kindness Chris. You will be extremely missed. - Posted by: Jessica Daniels (Friend/coworker ) on: Jun 08, 2022

  • I am deeply saddened by the loss of a good friend whose heart knew no limit. I met Chris at the Pony Corral when I was a regular singer in their houseband. We spent many a night sitting around sharing joke after joke, he had such a great sense of humour and laughed so easily. When we lost our dear friend Gerry Atwell, Chris and I hosted his service along with Vince Fontaine who has also left us too soon. My condolences to his family who have no doubt lost an amazing bringer of love and joy from their family. Chris was one of a kind, and I sure was blessed to know him, and lucky to call him a friend. - Posted by: Ian Cameron (friend) on: Jun 08, 2022

  • I met Chris through the world of music and we quickly became fast friends. Who wouldn't be drawn to his big smile, silly jokes and caring personality?! We hung out at shows, took bike rides and shared our love of sports. He was a true friend that you could count on. We didn't see eachother as often due to the pandemic and as he was busy with his love Lori but we messaged often. He was so happy with his relationships, his work and life. His passing is a huge loss to so many. Big love and condolences to all who grieve him. - Posted by: Priti Shah (Friend) on: Jun 07, 2022

  • Our collective hearts broke the day we heard about Chris' passing. He was the one person you could always count on to share a good story, make you laugh, be the first one to offer a helping hand. He was a person for people, he genuinely cared about others. When he met his fiancé, he was soooo excited. He wanted to share about those feelings and it was joy to see it. I was so happy for him to find her. The pandemic isolated us, and it was nice seeing everyone at our recent conference. I saw him in the crowd and waved. He was in his element, sharing conversations and laughter. He will be missed. Rest well Chris. - Posted by: Pamela Courchene (distant cousin ) on: Jun 06, 2022
