Joseph Pierre Guy Ayotte (Guy) passed away in palliative care at BUH on the morning of September 1, 2020, at the age of 83 years. Dad was born near Ranger, SK on June 14, 1937, to Bibiane and Laval Ayotte: he was the second eldest of nine children. Although he was a printer by trade at the Marian Press, dad had many skills and interests including fixing cars and machinery, home repairs, camping and harvesting. He also enjoyed RVing with his wife Gerry to Arizona where they enjoyed spending time with their "winter" family. He was strong in his faith and a member in various roles, of the Knights of Columbus, St. Vital Parish. Dad was a supportive and loving husband to our mom and he specially demonstrated this devotion in the last few years of mom's life. He was a father who we could always rely on and he unconditionally loved us, wanting the best for our children and ourselves. Dad will always be remembered for his quiet, gentle manner. Guy is lovingly remembered by his daughter Mary Ann (Jody) and their children, Gracie and Abby; daughter Claudette (Tony) and their children, Natashia (Andrew), Coleman (Allyce), Jesse (Taegan) and Anna, and three great-grandchildren: Bronson, Felix and Aubree.
