MARVIN BEVERLY GUY
Marvin was born on October 8, 1932 and passed away peacefully at Manitoulin Lodge on August 15th, 2021 in his 89th year. Marvin is predeceased by his wife Mary (nee Palmer), and mourned by his partner Norine Beange of 30 years. He will be greatly missed by his sons and daughters-in-law: B. Keith (Ruth) of Ice Lake, Randy (Gayle) of North Bay, and Greg (Anusha) of Stittsville. He will also be missed by his remaining sibling Daisy Goodvin (Chuck) of Brampton. He thoroughly enjoyed her letters which she sent weekly while he was in the Nursing Home for close to 3 years! He is pre-deceased by siblings Doris Strajna, Earnest, George (surviving spouse Alice), Roselyn Palmer (surviving spouse Austin), Bill, Doug and Joan Poirier (surviving spouse Patrick). He has 18 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews. Included in those who mourn are Norine’s children;
Debbie (Dave) Kidd, Gordon Beange (Simon) and Allan (Paulette) Beange who have been a huge part of his life for the past 30 years. Marv was born to Rose and George Guy on the family farm in Ice Lake, and he remained on the island his whole life. He was a carpenter, roofer, farmer and lumber jack – a hard worker from the get-go. He enjoyed friendships with many neighbors and people in the Gore Bay area. He really disliked going offisland, but in the ‘90’s and early 2000’s he enjoyed his winters in Florida, where he managed to beat everyone at shuffle board and happy hour! His favorite season was “hunting season” - which, depending on the year, might start in September! His eyes lit up when all the boys showed up at the farm for the “hunt”. Lots of times, he would say it was the laughs, and having the gang together that meant more than getting a deer. A public graveside service at Gordon cemetery will be held on Saturday August the 21st 2021, at 11 am (masks must be worn and social distancing must be adhered) followed by a light luncheon TBA. In lieu of flowers, donations to the MS Society or Strawberry Point Bible Camp would be appreciated. Cheques may be sent to the funeral home.
