It is with great sadness that we announce that Guy Aime Hamel died peacefully at home on May 13, 2020.
Guy shared 65 happy years of marriage with the love of his life, Gail. Together they raised six children ( Dawn, Keith, Iole, Lianne, Mark and Paul). He will be greatly missed by his sister Dorise and brother Larry. He was proud of his family, which has grown to include 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. He was a Professor of English at the University of Toronto ( New College) and retired as Professor Emeritus. In his retirement, Guy dedicated his time to writing and to volunteering at Thorncliffe Park P.S. He was passionate about teaching, storytelling and his happiest times were spent among school children. The adventures he had with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were splendiferous. A Celebration of Life will follow at a later time. Given Guy's love of reading and sharing this love with future generations, in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to First Books Canada in his memory (https://support.firstbookcanada.org/FBC_Donate) or to New College, U of T.
