For over 20 years, the two cofounders of Les Sentiers have embarked hand-in-hand on various business endeavours. At first glance, they may seem like total opposites: Guy, with his medium stance and calm, composed demeanour, and John, a tall energetic type who’s always ready for action. They form a great duo whose differences come together complimentarily in their projects to form a well-rounded recipe for success.
Guy and John are like brothers—both are passionate about life, nature and people. This passion is what fuels their vision of offering a unique funeral complex with exceptional service in a beautiful, natural setting.
You may wonder what would make someone want to start up or work at a funeral home. Learn more about the people that make up our dedicated team here at Les Sentiers.
Guy loves the outdoors, wide-open spaces and photography. He spent over 20 years as a professional photographer and actually discovered the funeral industry through his camera lens. At that time, he was owner and manager—along with his two brothers, of a gravestone memorial portrait company. His journey was inspired by the idea of creating a unique, natural funeral space where healing and peacefulness were front and centre.
“I truly love nature and life. This place really speaks to me.”
John learned early on, way back in his paperboy days, that customer loyalty was earned by offering the best possible customer experience. His nearly 45 years of experience in customer service are key to the success of the business he has cofounded. “Building a cemetery is simple. Getting families to come and adopt it is a huge challenge that requires tremendous effort.” More than 12 years after the opening of Les Sentiers, John continues to work diligently to offer one-of-a-kind services and experiences, in an effort to go beyond the expectations of families.
“At Les Sentiers, light and life always take centre stage.”
“The individual is at the heart of everything I do here at Les Sentiers. I feel as though I bring something to the people I interact with through our funeral services.”
“I help grieving people see clearer. Funeral services have a reputation of being complicated. It doesn’t have to be that way, especially when your life has just been turned upside down.”
“Death is not just about sadness. In fact, it’s a time to celebrate and reflect. These are key elements of our daily activities here at Les Sentiers.”
