  11. Dear Margaret and family. Please accept my sympathy on Guy’s passing. He was a kind, gentle friend, and I shall miss him. It was an honor to have known him.

  12. Dear Margaret and family…Guy was such a trooper having survived previous Cancer challenges. He and Larry were both determined to live their lives to the fullest…and they did. Now they are both at peace and together. We are so lucky to each have such wonderful family and friends support to help us move into this next chapter of our lives.

  13. As you guys know, Guy was largely responsible for my early love of computers and electronics. And in general he was just a great mentor and role model. He had a profound impact on my life. Sending my love.

  14. Lorne and Jan Stretch

    Guy was a great friend and will always be remembered and loved for all he was and all he did! Love to you all.

  15. I’m very sad to hear of Guys passing. I was lucky to have worked with him over the years. I always enjoyed his sense of humor about work and life. He will be missed by all that knew him. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

  16. My condolences go to Margaret and the rest of the Fenn family on Guy’s passing. Thinking back on him as a childhood friend in Dartmouth, and much later as a family man here in Victoria, I am struck by the curiosity and inventiveness he showed throughout his entire life. I recall one time when Guy invited me and my sister Laura into his man cave in the depths of Fenn Manor. There laid out on benches (and indifferently guarded by a cat) were time pieces, light boxes, display screens, and an assortment of other handmade devices, one of which to my untrained eye appeared to be a quantum-powered waffle maker. All of these inventions were manifestations of his ingenuity and, because he happily gave them away to friends, proof of his good nature.

  17. Margaret and family, my heart felt sympathy to you all, I share your sorrow. For over thirty years Guy was a friend and colleague. Even after he left Pitney Bowes we continued to meet weekly for coffee; a good lasting friendship. Whenever we got together there was always laughter. Guy saw the funny side of life. As others have mentioned, Guy had a positive outlook on life. Hopefully we can all share that as a legacy to our friend. Guy, you will be sorely missed.

    Gordon

  18. Thank you Guy for enriching our lives with your wisdom and friendship. You will be missed more than our words can say.

  19. My condolences to the Fenn family. I did not know Guy personally but did know his father and mother, Bea, from navy diving days in Dartmouth. From all that I’ve read in the condolences, Guy was a respected and much loved man who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I would like to express personal condolences to his mother, Bea, if she wishes to contact me.
