George Cardy (Dilys), Clara Clare (Ed), brother in-law Ross and stepsister in-law Anna Lyn (Andrew). He is survived by his loving wife Helen (nee Cardy) of 69 years who was his devoted soulmate since grade school. He leaves behind his son Kevin and wife Lucy, along with grandsons Ryan and Anthony who were his pride and joy.

He leaves behind his sister-in-law Barbara (Bill – deceased), stepsisters-in-law Susan (David – deceased) and Jackie as well as many nieces and nephews. Guy started his career as a carpenter for Smitty Construction in the late 1940’s working up to the role of lead foreman where he helped create many of the unique buildings standing along the Mountain Brow today. In the 1960’s, Guy started working for Dofasco as a millwright with Blast Furnace Mechanical as a Group Leader looking after steel construction in the Bayfront until he retired in 1987. Since his retirement, Guy put his talents to use and kept busy with wood-working creations that now he leaves behind. The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at both the Hamilton General and St. Peter’s Hospitals over the last few years.
