GUY, Lucien Paul: It is with great sadness the family of Lucien Paul Guy announce his passing at Ponteix Sask., on October 21/2013. Lucien was born on Nov. 24/1944 at Bradley's Nursing home to Armand and Bernadette Guy. He attended Cadillac and Crichton schools. After High school he attended Tech school in Moose Jaw for Autobody. Once this was completed he made a trip out to Vancouver to work for his Aunt and Uncle Emma and Louis Foret in the Rental business. The big city wasn't for him, so he returned back to Crichton to help his Dad farm and also found work at the local Pioneer Grain Elevator in Crichton. The Grain industry found him working for a number of different companies, such as McCabb, Pioneer, Sask Wheat Pool and UGG. This industry also found him transferring to a number of different communities in South West Sask, where he met many people. After eating Dust for a number of years, he decided to take on farming full time, so Lucien and Gil moved a trailer to the family farm and later built a house. Lucien was one of the first in South West Sask., to set up a pivot irrigation system and was also one of the first to grow Rapeseed (Canola) on irrigation. After farming for a number of years Lucien and Gil decided to try another career and set up a Dining room in Cadillac, which was a old train station. With this adventure he also decided to get into a petting zoo with a number of different animals. With the petting zoo he also added Whitetail deer, Fallow deer and Elk, which people would drive for miles to come and see. There was also a rumour going around Cadillac that they were getting into Giraffe's, but that rumour was laid to rest, when the sign went on the building NAPA and not Guy's Game Farm. Along with all these animals, Lucien decided to get into Boer goats, which kept Lucien and Gil busy with shows and importing of them from the States. Now you know why his nieces and nephews nicknamed him Noah, with all his animals. Lucien wore a number of Hats in his lifetime and after the Game farm he was Pest control officer for 10 RM's in the South West. Then Water Treatment Plant operator for the town of Cadillac. And was also on a number of Boards, including Mayor of Cadillac, Chairperson for the Church and President of the 50-50 club. There was one hat that Lucien wore with Pride and Heart, through the good years and Bad, and that was the Saskatchewan Roughriders. I am sure he will be analyzing every play and watching ever game from his Lazy boy in Heaven, as they make another run for the Grey Cup. The other Hat that he wore was a fluorscent orange or Orange Pioneer togue, which he used for Hunting. He loved hunting Birds and big game and has many nice mounts to prove it. He also passed his love for hunting to his nephews and took us on many hunting excursions. Lucien is survived by his Loving wife of 40 Years Gil, which they just celebrated together on Oct. 5th. Son Michael and his wife Stacey, and their children Rachel, Robin, Amaya and Cashtien. Daughter Nicole and her husband Butch and their children Colby and Kayne. Also a Sister Madeleine and her husband Pat, and their children Laurie (Eric), Patsy, Lyle (Liz), Rick (Nicole), Gail (Alain) and Randy (Sherrie). Also Brother in Law Roger Entem and his wife Clemons and their children Tammy and Justin (Deidra). And Brother in Law Dennis Entem. He is also survived by Aunt Emma Foret from Vancouver, and numerous Nieces, Nephews and cousins. Lucien was predeceased by his parent Armand and Bernadette Guy, and Mother and Father in law John and Jeanette Entem. Also predeceased by a special uncle Louis Foret, and other Aunts and Uncles and cousins. Lemieux Funeral Home, Ponteix, SK were entrusted with the arrangements.
