It is with sadness and anguish that we share the news of Jay's passing on Sunday, June 7th, 2020. Alongside him to the very end were his loving son Braden Guitard, his mother Denise Beaudry, his father Ed Beaudry, his best friend Brian Lebid and his wife Josie Bouthillier. Jay also leaves behind a beautiful grandchild, Greyson Jay Dodkiewicz Guitard and five wonderful stepchildren, Victoria Bouthillier, Madison Bouthillier, Georgia Bouthillier, Gabriel Perron and Aubree Perron. Jay remained deeply determined to keep living, even up until his final moments and wanted so badly to be with you all again. The prospect of living life among each of you is what kept him going in his long and fierce battle against cancer. We are so proud of him for continuing the way he did, and our hearts are heavy to have to let him go. An enormous thank you goes out to the care Jay received from the Palliative Team at HSN, I am so humbled by the care you gave my husband in his last hours. I also want to acknowledge the absolutely amazing Oncology Nurses at the Northern Cancer Center. Jay loved you all so very much. Due to the current pandemic, we will be holding a Celebration of Jay’s Life at a later date.
