I was shocked, as we all were, to learn of Guy’s passing on that fateful morning.

I didn’t know Guy very well nor for a long time, we had first met in June 2019 at the MG Days in Magny-Cours in France. I was there with my MG ZT-T 260, and so was Guy with his wife Miriam and their kids. As I blew a tyre on the Lurcy-Lévis track and had no spare wheel with me, Guy gently offered me with a spare wheel of his own, so I could finish the trip home. That’s when I realized that Guy’s generosity was not in vain.

A few months later, I happily joined him and other MG enthusiasts at the Ardennen meeting in August at Berdorf (and returning the spare wheel). It was such a nice and perfectly orchestrated event that I knew I’d be coming back for more…for Guy, his enthusiasm, passion, and kindness.

My sincere condoleances to Miriam, their children, and all those who were close to him.

All my best,

Nicolas Roughol
Président, Rover Club de France

Past Chairman – MGCC Magnette Register

I was very shocked to hear that we have lost dear Guy. I often enjoyed his company at Silverstone and other events we visited around Europe and it was so good to see his whole family involved with their beloved MGs. I particularly remember our sing-songs at the Magnette Days when Guy would get out his guitar and his song-books and everyone would share the joy of singing the old favourite songs together until late in the evening. He had a talent for animating events and an energy and enthusiasm that were infectious. Making pizza in his basement was a memorable experience for young and old and a great way to relax and meet new people. The world of MG is poorer for his loss. We will miss him. We send our heart-felt condolences to Fredry and her family.

Paul Batho – Chairman MGCC Magnette Register

Guy’s many Magnette friends are all shocked to hear of his tragic, premature death. He has been a charming, and hard-working ambassador for MGs and the MGCC for many years, following in Ton’s footsteps. We especially loved to see him, with his whole family in his ZA Magnette, at the annual European Magnette Day wherever it was held across the continent, when every Saturday evening he would lead us on his guitar in a sing-song around the embers of the fire, long into the night. It was also a joy to catch up with him at Silverstone, Beaulieu, the European Event of the Year and many other events. The world will be a much sadder place without him but he will live long in all our memories.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Miriam, Goya, Gene and Greg and of course his mother, Frederike.

Woorden zijn iets waar je moet mee zeggen…
Maar hier is zeggen te weinig, enkel het hart wat ik beleefd heb met de keren dat ík Guy ontmoet heb , en daarom is schrijven schappen om gewoon te zeggen…, ga je missen, niet als MG wereld maar als een man welke een gevoel had met mensen met passie, het ga je goed …,hierboven en kijk gerust naar beneden…, jou werk gaat voort.

Words are something you have to say with …
But here is not enough to say, only the heart that I have experienced with the times that I have met Guy, and that is why writing is just to say …, you will miss, not as MG world but as a man who felt with people with passion, you are doing well …, above and feel free to look down …, your work continues.

Lieve Frédéry,

Allereerst  gecondoleerd met het verlies van Guy. We hebben hele leuke en fijne ritten gehad die Guy georganiseerd heeft. De afsluitingen van de meetings bij jou in de tuin blijven ons altijd bij. Rond het vuur met z’n allen en Guy speelde op zijn gitaar.  Een herinnering die wij nooit zullen vergeten.
Wij wensen jou en Miriam en de kinderen en de hele familie heel veel sterkte om dit verlies te verwerken

Dear Frédéry,

First of all, my condolences on the loss of Guy. We had very nice and pleasant rides that Guy organized. The closings of the meetings in your garden will always remain with us. Around the fire all together and Guy played his guitar. A memory we will never forget.

We wish you and Miriam and the children and the whole family a lot of strength to come to terms with this loss

Regards,

Thanks Bob,

i met Guy several times, alone himself or with his wife and children, last time at the European meeting in Suisse.

He was a good guy and I have a nice remember of him.

Ton, which I suppose was the father of Guy has joined our MG Monaco Club and was our member in the past.

Drive safely Guy in your new route !

Liebe Miriam, liebe Kinder, liebe Fredry,

liebe Mitglieder des MGCC Luxemburg.

Mit Guy hat uns nicht nur der Präsident eines besonderen Clubs verlassen, sondern vor allem auch ein ganz besonderer Mensch.

Die Nachricht hat mich sehr berührt und betroffen gemacht, obwohl ich leider nun bereits seit einigen Jahren keinen Kontakt mehr zu Euch hatte. Im Herzen und im Geiste war und bin ich Euch jedoch bis heute Nahe und erinnere mich sehr gerne an gemeinsame Erlebnisse, Gespräche und Ausfahrten wie den Economy Run sowie die gemeinsame Zeit in Silverstone.

Ganz besonders auch die Gastfreundschaft, die ich seitens des Clubs und in Merscheid bei Miriam und Guy erfahren durfte hat mich tief beeindruckt. Selten habe ich mich so willkommen gefühlt wie bei Euch, bei meinen MG Freunden.

Guy wird uns allen sehr fehlen. In der MG-Szene in ganz Europa und darüber hinaus, vor allem aber als Mensch und vor allem Euch, dem Club und ganz besonders seiner Familie und den Kindern. Ich bin sicher, Ihr alle werdet weiterhin eng zusammen stehen und füreinander da sein. Bitte kontaktiert mich jederzeit, wenn ich meinen Teil dazu beitragen kann und gerne auch nur einfach so.

Guy wird im Himmel seinen Platz finden, bestimmt an der Seite seines Vaters und die Geschicke des Clubs beobachten und vielleicht hier und dort etwas Energie und Zuversicht senden.

Ich hoffe, Ihr findet einen Weg, Euer schönes Miteinander trotz der schwierigen Situation weiter fortzuführen und irgendwann auch wieder unbeschwert genießen zu können.

Ich jedenfalls bleibe Euch im Geiste und im Herzen verbunden und wünsche mir, dass wir uns bald wiedersehen werden.

Ruhe in Frieden, mein lieber Freund Guy

Dear Miriam, dear children, dear Fredry,

Dear members of the MGCC Luxembourg.

With Guy, not only has the president of a special club left us, but above all a very special person.

The news touched and affected me very much, although unfortunately I haven’t had any contact with you for several years. In my heart and in my spirit I was and still am close to you today and I like to remember shared experiences, conversations and trips like the Economy Run and the time we spent together in Silverstone.

I was particularly impressed by the hospitality that I was able to experience from the club and from Miriam and Guy in Merscheid. I have seldom felt as welcome as I did with you, my MG friends.

We will all miss Guy very much. In the MG scene all over Europe and beyond, but above all as a person and above all you, the club and especially its family and children. I am sure you will all continue to stand close together and be there for one another. Please contact me at any time if I can do my part and just like that.

Guy will find his place in heaven, definitely by his father’s side, watching the fate of the club, and maybe sending some energy and confidence here and there.

I hope you will find a way to continue your nice togetherness despite the difficult situation and to be able to enjoy carefree again at some point.

In any case, I remain connected to you in spirit and in heart and I hope that we will see each other again soon.

Rest in peace my dear friend Guy
