Shrewsbury – To know Robby Guyott was to love him. He was larger than life. With a contagious sense of humor and infectious laugh he left an impression on everyone he met. Robert O. Guyott, born on December 14, 1992 along with his twin sister, Lizzie arrived to the loving embrace and welcome of his parents, Stephen and Margaret (Campbell) Guyott. “Robby,” as he was lovingly known to all, died unexpectedly at home Monday, Nov. 18, 2013 at age 20. He touched the lives of many.
He was destined for a career in standup comedy and was pursuing his dream. He worked for Papa Gino's in Shrewsbury where it was well known by staff that so many people asked for him when they placed their orders for delivery. And as a bar back in Boston at ‘Scholar's’ he entertained and met so many people. While in high school he followed his passion for hockey and played for the team at Shrewsbury High School and graduated with the class of 2011.
Outside of comedy Robby's passion was to see the world. He loved to travel. He backpacked though Europe, skied in Italy, pub crawled in Dublin, danced disco in Barcelona and left his wallet in Andorra! He lived life and experienced so much in his twenty short years. And so our collective prayers for Robby is that in his last journey he has reached Heaven and now experiences the comfort and sweetness of peace. Heaven rejoices and laughs like it has never laughed with Robby Guyott at center stage. He has fulfilled his dream. He was larger than life and will be so missed.
Great love lives on in the hearts of his family and friends. He leaves his parents, Peggy and Stephen; his siblings, Stephen Q. ‘Quinn’ Guyott, Kristin C. Guyott, Molly A. Guyott and his twin, Lizzie S. Guyott; his grandmother, Dorothy B. Campbell; aunts, uncles, cousins and his much loved nephew, Rene whom he adored and a host of friends.
Family and friends will honor and remember Robby's life by gathering for calling hours Thursday, Nov. 21, from 3 – 8 p.m., at Heald & Chiampa Funeral Directors ~ The Sumner House, 5 Church Road, On the Common, Shrewsbury Center, and again Friday, Nov. 22, at 8:45 a.m., before leaving in procession to Saint Mary's Church, 640 Main St., Shrewsbury, where his funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in Mountain View Cemetery.
