Guy D. A. Goulet


SANFORD – Guy D. A. Goulet, 76, formerly of Lewiston, lost a courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, May 2, at home in Sanford, surrounded by family.

He was born in Lewiston on Oct. 21, 1929, a son of Hector and Angeline (Cote) Goulet. After graduating from St. Dominics High School in 1948, he served four years in the Marine Corps, receiving his honorable discharge as a staff sergeant in 1952.

Guy worked as a foreman at the Bates Mill between 1952 and 1962, attending Bliss Business College during the first two of those years. He spent the rest of his work years mastering the plumbing and heating trade, finally retiring from Dick Blais Plumbing & Heating after the last 20 of those years.

On Feb. 10, 1951, Guy married Jacqueline Bouvier in Lewiston at the St. Peter & Paul Church chapel. Together, they fostered three sons, Paul, Marc and Andre, and celebrated 55 years of marriage.

He enjoyed his retirement years with his wife the most, while wintering for three months each year in Cocoa Beach, Fla., always looking forward to the sunshine, warmth and camaraderie they had found there.

He was an avid golfer and sports enthusiast. He was a member of the Fairlawn Country Club in Lewiston, and finally achieved every golfer’s dream of a “hole-in-one” in Florida on Jan. 30, 1997, on the fifth hole of the Cocoa Beach Country Club’s Dolphin Course. Guy was a diehard fan of the Boston Red Sox, and became one of the privileged generations to have finally witnessed a Red Sox World Series Championship season.

He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline; one brother, Lucius; one sister, Cecile (Mayfield); three sons, Paul, Marc and his wife, Terry (Boulay), and Andre; two granddaughters, Danielle and Krista; and several nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces.

He will be sadly missed by his loving family and friends.

He was predeceased by his parents Hector and Angeline (Cote); four brothers, Jean Louis, Richard, George, and Marcel; and one granddaughter, Sarah Dawn.
