FORTIN, Guildo


~April 12, 1958 – November 19, 2020~

Suddenly but peacefully, Guildo passed away at NSHN-Blind River with his beloved best friend and soulmate Doris by his side. Loving partner of Doris Payette. Father of Matthew, Brent, Nelson and Veronica. Step father of Lawrence, Loretta, Marsha and Rene. Grandfather of 16 and great grandfather of 3.

Survived by his sisters Carolaine and Dorianne and brother Steve. Predeceased by his brothers Rejean and Jasmin and his parents Dominique and Yolande Fortin. He will be fondly remembered by his best friend and buddy Chigie Jameus as well as other friends and family.

Guildo’s humour kept everyone laughing. He was a kind hearted person who loved to cheer people up. He was a gifted man with many talents, one of which was drawing or sketching landscapes, people and animals. He was mostly known for his love of music and was happiest when he was singing or playing one of the many musical instruments he had mastered such as: guitar, piano, harmonica, violin, drums and the accordion to name a few. We will forever miss his humour and his ability to bring people out of the depths.

A special thank you to Dr. Matthew Naccarato, and the acute care staff at NSHN-Blind River especially Jules and Zoe for making Guildo’s last days easier.

Per Guildo’s wishes cremation has taken place. Private burial and gathering will take place at a later date.
