Jeff truly had a heart of gold. From my view, he lived the life he chose as well as any I know. Simple, at peace, prayerful, jovial and caring, especially about his Mountain Lakes friends, classmates and even my kids. He always wanted to know about everyone with genuine concern for their well-being. Jeff was a delightful person to spend time with and talk about "the good old days."
Ellie and I are very saddened by his passing. We are so glad to have known Jeff as only fond memories are recalled.
Kevin and Ellie McCann

I don't see an obit so I am taking the liberty of including a letter Jeff wrote 18 months ago. I believe it captures the essence of this kind, loyal, and loving friend and brother.

Jeff Guyette 500 Old Colony Rd., Apt. 311, Hyannis, MA 02601-4024 I took a year off after H.S. and then by the skin of my teeth I was accepted to Keystone Jr. College in N.E. PA, and attended there with Bobby McCann. All I got from KJC for my 2 years was being president of the Tribunal (hazing) and being elected Homecoming King ’71. Although those were, two of the best years of my life. I then went to Bloomfield State for a semester and decided college was not for me.

Shortly after I drove (w/ Robbie Orriss) across country and stayed at Mike Austin’s for a while in Leadville, Colorado. Mike and I went to Mexico (drove) for a week then back to Mountain Lakes.

In 1975 I moved to Cape Cod (Hyannis) where I have been ever since. I was a short order cook and chief bottle washer at an Inn on Main Street for a couple of years.

I then went across the street to work in a furniture warehouse with Shipping and Receiving as such for about 18 years. I loved that job (great people).

From there I drove for Town Taxi (way before Uber) for a while, but those 10-12 hour shifts got to me.

Through my church (St. Francis Xavier) I volunteered 3 or 4 days a week at the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry for almost 12 years. I never knew there was so much need out there until I started helping. I worked with some great people. My friend Bernie, is a 92-year old twice Purple Hearted WWII Vet and a great friend.

Last summer, after being in my apartment for 35 years I finally qualified for “Senior Housing”. I moved in in May and couldn’t be happier. It has more room than I need with a nice balcony on the top floor; and it’s only a pebbles throw down to the Harbour.

I thank God every day with all the blessings of my family, my friends, and the wonderful people at the Church. I owe it all to him and I pray it continues.

And that brings me to our High School reunion. I drove down with Dave Maddox and without his help I don’t know that I would have made it.

The ‘get together’ at TGIF’s was great. It seemed time had stopped for all of us. The place was packed and you didn’t know who to talk to next.

Some went from there to the football game where we were victorious and they honored our alumni athletes at half-time.

Most, then met up for a nice party at Arlene’s cabins and that was packed and the fun continued well into the night. Arlene is “the BEST” for being so generous and having us all over every reunion.

Some did breakfast at Hapgood’s or Paul’s Diner and some did yoga at Island Beach. Saturday everyone sort of went their own way, which included tours at Lake Drive School, Briarcliff, and the High School. There was both a brief prison ball game downstairs and a brief play at the auditorium upstairs at Lake Drive School.

The Dinner at “The Club” I think had over 50 Alumni and I hope we all have a copy of the group photo. The buffet food was delicious but for the first time in my life I didn’t notice.

We took lots of time out to remember our classmates who have passed on and our fondest memories of when they were with us – We will all never forget them and they will always be in our hearts.

Guest Mike O’Donnell (Class of ’58) stopped by to talk about the numerous activities of the MLHS Alumni Association.

There was a special presentation of an engraved silver tray to Jim Long from all of us because without him none of this would be possible. Dore and Alison have worked very hard along with him through the years.

I know we all count our blessings having such friendships that will last forever. The rest of the reunion committee (Bill, Mark, Jack, and Scott) has done a wonderful service for us all.



Thank you all for being part of my life

See you in ’23

Jeff

I always thought that Jeff was bemused at the world and the way we acted. Hopefully his bemusement turned to amusement and brought him peace. The longer I live, the more I am convinced that Jeff knew something that I did not.
