1/18/1951 – 10/13/2018 With heavy hearts, the family of Chris Guidry, 67, would like to announce his death after a brief illness of mosquito-borne West Nile. He passed away peacefully in the presence of his loving family on October 13, 2018. He was born in New Orleans on January 18, 1951. As a beloved husband of Debra Guidry for 45 years, he became the proud father of Elliot Guidry (Erica Guidry), Ben Guidry (Erin Guidry), and Dr. Chrissy Guidry. Over the past 7 years, he was blessed to be the loving grandfather of Eliza, Aislyn, Eloise, and Isaac. He was the oldest son of Mabel and the late Roman Guidry. He is survived by his sisters Donna LeBlanc, Mary Breaux, Jenny Halbert, and Carol Miller. He was an RN for many years and most recently dedicated his time working for St. Joseph Hospice. Chris will be remembered for the compassionate care he provided to so many patients and their families during their final earthly moments. In lieu of flowers any donations will help to create a scholarship for a nursing student with aspirations similar to Chris’s vocation.
