Guy D’Addario

July 30, 2021—The Canadian natural health community is mourning the loss of Guy D’Addario, who was to many industry members the face of Nature’s Emporium.  Guy passed away in Vaughan, ON July 30 in his 64th year.

Guy was a dedicated family man, and working along side his family members, they built Nature’s Emporium into one of our country’s leading natural health food store groups. 

Guy seemed to be present at virtually every industry event.  He was liked and respected by all who knew him.

In the November-December issue of CNHR, we will be doing a tribute to Guy.
