Turcotte, Guy Paul

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Guy Turcotte Sr.

He was 77 years young, born August 02,1944. He passed away peacefully on October 9 at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton surrounded by family. Dad dedicated his life to his family. He was a firm but supportive father who taught us right from wrong.

He had many passions, family was first. He loved being a part of the Hudson Bay Wagoneers, he cherished the memories of the wagon treks with his horse Red and all the great friends that rode the trails.

Over the years in Hudson Bay he loved his animals, he had a team of mules, donkeys and horses. He would use his sleigh or wagons to take family and friends for rides. He enjoyed taking the residents of the Pioneer Lodge for rides where mom worked. He taught us to raise our own livestock and the rewards of hard work.

In the later years, (2017) it was time to move off the farm, Dad and Mom moved to Fort Saskatchewan and lived in their own suite with Mary(Turcotte)Bracken and Bruce Bracken. There, Mom and Dad were always surrounded by lots of love from the grandchildren, great grandchildren and their dog Daisy.

Dad got to ride again but it wasn’t on his horses or mules. He rode a Spyder, he turned into a Wild Hog with Bruce and Gary Bracken. He absolutely loved his road trip to Canmore, Banff and Jasper. Dad and Bruce would frequently go for rides whether it was cruising the highways or downtown for a coffee at Tim’s where they would meet some other biker friends.

Mom(Florence), who was the love of his life passed away November 18, 2019. Dad counted the days until he could be reunited with mom but continued to enjoy life to the fullest. He rode, he laughed and he loved.

You’re with Mom and Nicky now, watch over us and guide us.
We love you Dad and we will miss you every day.

As per the request of Guy Turcotte Sr. there will be no service. There will be a celebration of life in spring 2022.

Id like to thank Dr, Dobin, and the amazing staff at the University Hospital for their care of Dad during that very difficult week.

A very special thank you goes to Dr. Trent Dusang who Dad trusted and respected so much. He has been the most amazing doctor any family could hope for. His care of Mom and Dad this past four years has been a gift.

No flowers please. Dad believed it was important to be an organ donors and to consider donating to the Anatomical Gifts program in your province.
