Norman Terry Guerard was born October 18, 1949 and died on December 21, 2018 after a more than 40 year struggle with Crohn’s disease and related issues. He was the son of the late Norman E. Guerard and Gladys C. (Bardin) Guerard. He leaves his wife, Nancy Caine Guerard of Bantam, and a son Sean Guerard (Chandra) of Milton, CT; a sister Sandra Guerard (Robert Goldman), and a niece Susan Culbert Woolard of Richmond, Virginia. He also leaves his constant canine companions, Molly and Max.

He had a lifelong passion for cars. He worked for Bantam Toyota and Ruwet-Sibley, and several other businesses as a mechanic, on cars, small engines, and heavy equipment. In addition he built/worked on Street Rods and Dragsters, and participated in local and national shows.

He never met a stranger and always helped people in need, and was a loving husband, father, brother, and son. Despite his significant health challenges, he never gave up. He lived life to the fullest extent possible.

A graveside service will be private.

Norman Terry Guerard, my beloved younger brother, died this morning.
He was a crackerjack mechanic, who could fix any motor that used gas or airplane fuel. Cars were his passion from the time he was four years old, starting from when he told our Dad that he had fixed the car by filling the gas tank with sand. He had his first car, a Morris Minor, at the age of eight, which he drove around our yard (which became a dirt track) and in the neighboring fields. Thus began the story of his life with cars.
Despite struggling for more than four decades with severe Crohn's disease, multiple surgeries, clinical drug trials, chronic Crohn's neuropathy and the resulting severe pain, and the years of medications and pain that took their toll on his body, Terry persevered---and he NEVER gave up. The name GUERARD means "hardy warrior", and that is an apt descriptor to my hero brother.
For many years, he built and raced drag cars that ran on gas and airplane fuel, and he built and restored street rods. His gruff, teddy bear visage graced the cover of several national Street Rod magazines, along with his newest "favorite" car, most often a bright yellow Anglia panel car. He was indeed "Stormin Norman". He appeared on the TV show "Pinks" (I wanted to kill him!). A contestant dropped out, and Terry took his place. No crew, no slicks, but people at the track helped him because they liked him and respected him. He lost the race, and the car. When I asked him why he did it, he replied "I always wanted to do that, and I never thought I would live long enough to do it". I couldn't argue with him.
Terry was dyslexic, before anyone knew there was such a thing, and it impacted his education. He could do math faster than a calculator, but reading took lots of time and energy.
He took wonderful and loving care of our Mother, whom we both dearly loved. He would help anyone in need, and never met a stranger. His word was his bond, and truth was his shield. Those are the things that made me love him even more. (I took him to school for "Show and Tell" when he was born.)
Terry loved life, and was happy to be alive for more years than he ever expected. His body had struggled for so long, and he had overcome so many obstacles. Now he is at rest and at peace. I won't have to worry about him anymore. PAX
