Remembering Jean-Guy - Enjoy the powder in the sky...............

When I posted "Livin' the Dream" on January 6th - Gabe's snowboard manufacture business - I had no idea his Dad had passed away the day before. The last few years have been rough for the family, as the Jean-Guy we all knew faded with illness.

Our thoughts are with Julie, the boys and family. Jean-Guy was a volunteer ski patroller for many years. He preferred to patrol the trees on the North Side. "Bonne Neige" was owned by the Langlois family when the boys were young. They would look out the loft window to see when my front curtains opened, and come across the street for pancakes. Lots of happy memories.

Jean-Guy was a farrier by trade, and I watched him shoe a horse once - he was a gentle "horse whisperer".

I will dig through my prints in the coming days.


Langlois, Jean-Guy

Jun 28, 1949 - Jan 5, 2017

On Thursday January 5, 2017, Mr. Jean-Guy Langlois of Oliver passed away peacefully at Mariposa Gardens at the age of 67 years.

He was predeceased by his parents Roland and Annette Langlois.

Jean-Guy will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife Julie; sons Gabriel and Samuel and sister Mireille.

Jean-Guy was a farrier by trade and serviced the South Okanagan since 1976.

He was an avid hockey player, golfer, hiker, waterskier and windsurfer. Jean-Guy spent years skiing, snowboarding and volunteering on ski patrol at Mt. Baldy but what he enjoyed most was spending time with family and friends.

A celebration of life will be announced in the near future.

Condolences and tributes may be directed to the family by visiting www.nunes-pottinger.com
