SACO — Guy Francis Perrault, 53, of Greenfield, Mass., died unexpectedly in his sleep on June 10, 2014.

Guy was born on April 17, 1961 in Portsmouth, N.H., the only child of Norman H. Perrault and Patricia Armstrong Perrault.

Guy graduated from Acton-Boxborough High School in 1979. He then went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in political science at UMass Amherst in 1983.

Guy was a kind and gentle man, who lived life to its fullest and enjoyed his family and friends. Guy’s passions included music and cooking. Music was a big part of Guy’s home. He was a great musician, an accomplished bass player and also enjoyed playing the keyboard. To share his passion for good food, Guy completed a cookbook, containing 100 recipes, which was ready to be published at the time of his death. Guy also enjoyed wine and was a wine connoisseur. While working in Boston, he had the privilege to travel to Australia. He toured all of the wineries around the country. It was indeed the trip of a lifetime.

However, the most important passion and proudest accomplishment for Guy was being a father to Max and Drew. He was so proud and profoundly grateful to have Max and Drew as sons, and Guy loved and cared very deeply for both of them. They were first in his life. He attended school functions, hockey and soccer practices and games, traveling all over Massachusetts and Connecticut, and he enjoyed every minute of that time being a father to two wonderful boys. Max and Drew also share their father’s love of music, with Drew on the drums and Max on bass.

Guy was preceded in death by: his father, Norman H. Perrault in 2008.

He is survived by: his sons, Maxim and Drew, and their mother, Kim Rossi, all of Belchertown, Mass.; his mother of Portland; his companion, Jeannette Seward of Greenfield, Mass.; one aunt, Jacqueline “Jacquie” Perrault of Old Orchard Beach; three uncles, Roland “Bill,” Robert and Richard Perrault; several cousins; and many loving friends in Massachusetts and Maine.
