GUENETTE, Louie Arnold
September 12, 1931 - May 10, 2018
With respect, we announce the passing of the head of our family, our "Rock" and our hero, Louie Guenette. Born in Onoway, AB and residing in Sherwood Park for 56 years, Louie, at age 86 1/2, courageously endured a brief battle with pancreatic cancer, a disease which stole his strength, but not his will to joke, remain positive and grateful for a productive and full life. Louie remains a beloved husband to Doris, father to Jeff (Carol), Daryl (Jennie), Robin, Twyla-Rae (Ted) and Vallee-Lou; grandfather to Jared (Candice), Sarah (Tyson), Louie, Misty, Adam, Matthew and Samantha (Matthew); brother to Don and brother-in-law to Adeline, Ella, Alberta, Irma, Marilyn and Tom. Louie is also survived by a handful of great- grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and good friends. Louie was predeceased by his parents, Gerald and Edna, his brothers (Keith, Armand, Wayne), his sister, Ruth, his sister-in-law, Marlene, his brothers-in-law (Punny, Forrest, Gordon) and 3 year old grandson, Christopher Wilson.
In addition to Louie's working career of 30 1/2 years at Imperial Oil's Strathcona Refinery, Louie recently entered his 32nd year of retirement, revelling in the fact he collected a pension for longer than he worked! In addition to being a jack-of-all- trades (including extensive carpentry), his various hobbies included dancing, playing cards, gardening, big game hunting, archery, taxidermy, fishing, cooking and canning, wine and sausage making and raisin bread baking. He was also an old-time fiddler with a large repertoire - and many musical partners including his wife, Doris; cousin, Andy; friends Fred and Uncle Jack; and, of late, Susanne and Joe, in their band 'The Good Neighbors' with their signature piece 'The Good Neighbor Waltz'.
Louie's family wishes to thank Dr. Cahill, Dr. Crotty, Dr. Scarfe and Dr. Sidhu as well as the excellent nursing staff at Norwood Hospice (with special mention to Lila), for their kindness and keen interest in "The Man of Many Hats".
We also invite those who cared for Louie to a 'Celebration of Life' on May 17 at 6 p.m. at Park Place Funeral Home Chapel (51 Broadway Blvd. Sherwood Park 780-417-8000). In lieu of flowers, if you wish, memorial donations can be made in his memory to the 'The Jack Millikin Centre' in Saskatchewan - or a charity of your choice.
