Passed peacefully at St. Joseph’s hospital after a 28 year battle with multiple sclerosis.

Predeceased by his parents Ray & Lillian Dunham and siblings: Bill Arnold, Marge Jefferies, Lloyd Arnold & Larry Dunham. Survived by his sisters: Gene Gunn, Patricia Birdsell and sister in laws Donna Dunham (Larry) & Barb Arnold (Lloyd).

He grew up in Lynden before moving to Dundas as a teenager, where he was an avid hockey player playing for the Dundas Blues. He always looked forward to his annual fishing trips with the boys and cottage time with family and friends. He went directly from high school to Stelco for an apprenticeship as a millwright where he stayed for the next 30 years before retiring in 2003. Anyone who knew Guy, knew he loved food, especially anything sweet. His vast knowledge and great sense of humor will be missed by all that knew him.

We would like to thank Blackadar continuing Care for their kindness, compassion, friendship and care of our father’s needs over the past 11 years.

So sorry to hear about your loss had a lot of good times with Guy we love playing practical jokes on one another. Even when he came into the hospital and I seen him there he made sure to tell all the nurses about our practical jokes I got teased a lot from the nurses so he was still trying to outdo me . He will be missed. Guy say hello to Roly even once again enjoy each other. My condolences to the whole family definitely will be missed

I remember Guy coaching T-ball at Alexander Park in West Hamilton. Fond memories return of me being Guy's assistant coach when our kids were small back in the early 80's.
You were a great coach!

To the Dunham Family
So sorry to hear of your loss. He has been a great friend over so many years. I have so many great memories of Guy and all the family at so many hockey and baseball tournaments, as well as the many trips to Geneseo for hockey or golf (but mostly for the fun times with all our American friends). He was such a big part of the 10 Guys Fishing trip as well as the Big Moose Group. He will be missed greatly by all who knew him. Thinking of you in these trying times. Moj

I played hockey with Guy in the 70's in the Stelco league. We all called him "captain crunch" because he hit players so hard. Guy was a super person and everyone liked him. God Bless You old friend.
