Guy was the perfect mix of generosity, selflessness, and compassion. He cherished spending time with his family, especially when he was actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America, taking his sons on camping trips. Guy and his wife, Joan, enjoyed traveling together to stamp conventions, as well as being involved in their business, Simply Stampin'. He was happy when his daughter and her family would go with them to help at their conventions. His grandchildren brought him immense joy, and he loved watching them play and be carefree. Guy's devotion to his family remained unwavering until the very end.
Guy is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Joan Benoit, and their four sons and daughters-in-law: Gregory and Lisa Benoit, Justin and Sarah Benoit, Jamieson and Jessica Benoit, and Garrison and Ashlie Benoit.
