The family announces with great sorrow the sudden passing of Guy Lahaie on January 5, 2024 at the age of 80 at the Timmins and District Hospital. Survived by his loving wife of 60 years Sandra (Newton), children, Brian (Angela), Jennifer, (Garry) (Danny) and Jonathan (Melanie). Grandchildren, Sarah, Nicholas, Emily, and Brianna. Brother Vince (Jackie, predeceased), sister Linda (Rob), sisters-in-law, Maureen, Margaret (Terry), Lorraine (Andy), and Mary, and many loving nieces and nephews.

Guy worked in mining for 28 years at The Dome Mine then later Royal Oak Mine, and ended his career with The City of Timmins building and maintaining the skating oval yearly on Gillies Lake. An avid sports and outdoorsman, many would know him by the name Rocket for his incredible wrist shot, and would go to the arena just to watch him let a few go! He was an amazing hockey player and bowed from his hockey career to marry the love of his life and raise his 3 wonderful children, teaching us his love of sports, the outdoors and to always keep our faith in the Lord. Guy spent over 50 years camping at Ivanhoe Lake - Red Pine Lodge with his family and many friends. He was happiest there with his family and going fishing every chance he could. Dad, your devotion to your family, your drive, work ethic and your fierce determination to do things right the first time has been instilled in us all and we thank you. A heartfelt thank you to the family that were by his side comforting him in his final moments with us, as well as EMT, Nurses, Doctors and all involved at TDH for the care and compassion for our father. You will always be our Hero Dad. God saw you were tired and took you home. Thank you Lord for giving us this very wonderful man to love. Time to rest dad.
As per wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
