I am sorry to tell you that we have lost a good friend and Scimitarist LOUIS GUIGOZ :

La famille Boulmier-Guigoz-Dooley
a la tristesse de vous faire part du décès de
Louis Guigoz à 78 ans
Il s’est endormi doucement entouré de l’amour des siens
le 25 février 2020, après avoir vaillamment combattu une longue maladie.
Un hommage à sa vie sera rendu
le mardi 3 mars 2020 à 10 heures
au centre funéraire de Montoie, à Lausanne, chapelle A.
Louis repose au centre funéraire de Montoi.
En lieu et place de fleurs, si vous le souhaitez, vous pouvez faire une donation à
la Fondation Théodora (Dr Rêve pour les enfants hospitalisés)
IBAN CH66 0024 3243 G054 9454 0
Adresse de la famille:
Josette Boulmier-Guigoz, Chemin Sous-la-Roche 6, 1185 Mon-sur-Rolle, Suisse

Many french Scimitarists knew Louis and Josette from their enthusiastic participation in the SouthoFrance Sorties
until Louis could no longer drive his magnificent Middlebridge and sold it to Fred Hermand.
This car had the distinction of being homologated and de-polluted for Switzerland and is certainly the only car that
had simultaneously british, french and swiss registration.

I know we all send sincere condolences to Josette and the family.

Louis my friend you will be sadly missed, safe journey in the beyond.

Really sorry to hear that. I only knew Louis through exchange of emails on Middlebridge matters but he came across as a real gent and true enthusiast.

Oh dear, that's really sad. I met Louis and Josette at the big rally in Morges in 2014, they were a really friendly couple and made me feel welcome in Switzerland. I'm sure we all feel for his family and friends . RIP Louis.

O what sad news, I met with Louis and Josette in Geneva and we had a great time discussing Scimitars generally and also the Middlebridge marque. Louis and Josette travelled many thousands throughout Europe in MB 29 and really increased the marque awareness at the same time. Louis was sadly forced to sell his Middlebridge some time ago as it became too low to the ground for him. RIP Louis and deepest sympathy to Josette and family at this time.

Sad to hear of his passing.
He contacted me just after buying the MB for a few parts, didn`t know he had sold it though. :cry:
