  1. This saddens me as Guy O’Sullivan worked with myself and friends in September 2015. He was a joy to be around and I’m deeply saddened by his passing ., Dean Barrett

  2. So, so sad. I met him on set for two seasons of Canada’s Worst Driver and found him to be one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. May his family find peace. My prayers are with you.
