Dagesse, Guy  
Guy Dagesse was a sincere, exceptional man who cherished his "doggies," his guitar, and his two surviving daughters, Samantha and Tara Dagesse. He would joke that it was in that order, but the close-acquainted know the man would give anything for his girls. On Sunday, May 1, 2016, Guy was able to be at peace after a moderately long hospital stay. Guy had many aspirations and left us too heartbreakingly soon. He had dreams for a relaxed life with his longtime sweetheart, Lori Rideout, who he shared countless blissful memories with. Guy will be remembered for his strength, loyalty and unmatched wit. He is surely racing for the best fishing spots in heaven with his good friend, Danny Mullen; and his father, Noel Dagesse. Guy was an outwardly intimidating man but in reality a big teddy bear and rightly loved by all. He will be profoundly missed by all of his surviving family members, especially his nephew, Josh, who was a part of many happy days for Guy. Guy Clifford Dagesse was an irreplaceable father, brother, son and friend. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Road, Enfield. For online expressions of sympathy visit www.leetestevens.com
