Jean-Guy Langlois

June 28, 1949 - January 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.

From: Terry Schafer
Relation: I was on the ski patrol with Jean Guy

Jean Guy trimmed our horses feet with finesse and was always fun though he took his duties on the mt. Baldy ski patrol seriously. It has always been a pleasure to know Jean Guy and we will miss him.

My wife Katherine and I first met Jean-Guy at Bob and Esther Minty’s place when he was shoeing their horses. He was bent over with a big smile on his face. We moved up to the Mccuddy Ranch to build our house and found out the Langlois’ had built one of the first houses in that area. I was also so glad to see him when he came to the Post Office to say hello.

From: Bob and Heather Pearce
Relation: Long time friends

Julie our heartfelt sympathies to you and Gabe and Cody.There are some many wonderful memories that we shared over almost forty years. Our kids, our favourite farrier who we could only get if he wasn’t golfing or windsurfing. We hope that time and all your wonderful memories will bring you peace. We were lucky to have had him in our lives and we will sincerely miss him. Hugs to you all.

Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

So many memories of Jean-Guy’s happy outlook on life and his willingness to accommodate our busy schedules with his farrier work. Always pleasant, patient and particular in his work. He will be missed.

From: Eileen & Manfred Oliver-Bauer
Relation: Client

So saddened and shocked to hear of Jean-Guy’s passing. Didn’t know he was ill, as we haven’t had any horses for some years now, so lost touch. He was our farrier for 20+ years, always did a great job, always on time, never had a horse throw a shoe! And of course, it was always fun to have a visit with him while he was shoeing the horse, funny, upbeat … Our condolences go out to his family, he will be missed.

From: Don and Ruth McLarty
Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

Julie and family,
Our thought a are with you and your family Julie. His last few years were not Jean Guy. Take care.
Ruth and Don
