Guy Maillet, 76, of Moncton, passed away on Saturday, August 19th, 2023, at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Center, Moncton, NB, with his loving wife of 52 years by his side, following a courageous battle with Mesothelioma.
Guy retired as a plumbing inspector with the Government of New Brunswick in 2008. Kind and generous, he was also a man of many talents and was always quick to lend a hand to those who needed guidance, advice, and help, never seeking or expecting anything in return. He was especially skilled in bringing joy and laughter in a room, making it his mission to make others happy and to remind us all of the importance of making the most of every day.
He had many hobbies, especially canoeing, four wheeling, and taking on a good game of cards. Most importantly though, he cherished and enjoyed the company of his family and friends, regularly organizing gatherings at his home and at his much loved summer retreat in Ste-Anne-de-Kent.
Guy was born in Ste-Anne-de-Kent, NB, he was the son of the late Gerard and the late Rita (Arsenault) Maillet.
He will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Bernice (Cormier) Maillet; his sisters: Carmen Richard (Normand) of Ayer, Massachusetts, Marielle Bouchard (late Normand) of Dieppe, Aline Arsenault (Donald) of Moncton and Cecile Scott (Dick) of Bridgewater, NS; his sister-in-law, Claudette Maillet (late Omer); his brother-in-law, Gilles Godbout (late Ginette), the extended Cormier family and many nieces and nephews. Everyone loved Guy dearly!
He was predeceased by his sisters: Bernice Daigle (late Guy) and Ginette Godbout (Gilles) and by his brothers: Omer Maillet (Claudette) and Laurie Maillet.
