Father’s Day. It just happens to fall on the first Sunday Morning Breakfast at Diz’s. We can not wait to see you first thing on Sunday morning. If you know Diz, that is not his favorite time of day. Being a life-long restaurant guy, his preference is evenings. But for you… he’s getting up early to make breakfast. I personally can not wait. Being his wife I know how good his breakfast extravaganzas can be. Get here early. We open at 7AM. We will serve until noontime.
Besides the eggs, pancakes, waffles, and other traditional favorites, We have a build your own omelette and an a la carte menu. And for me, a Keto girl, Diz came up with the “Hey Jude’s Keto Breakfast.” Two cinnamon crunch protein pancakes with maple butter, two over-easy eggs and choice of meat (bacon, jalapeno bacon, sausage, thick-sliced ham)
This will be a bitter sweet Father’s Day for me. My Dad, the wonderful Jim Guild, passed away May 13th. We’ll raise a glass in his memory this Sunday. Below is his obituary if you’d like to know him a little better.
BEDFORD, NH — James E. Guild Sr. passed away quietly in his home with his wife and family by his side on May 13, 2020 after a long, eventful life.
Jim was born in Manchester NH, the middle child to Herbert and Josephine (Casey) Guild. He was a 1957 graduate of Manchester High School Central. Falling in love at the age of 15, Jim spent the next 67 years raising his family with his wife Jill (O’Dowd) Guild.
Jim was known for his dry sense of humor, finding funny moments in the everyday and never passed up a good joke: “Did you hear about the doctor, the priest, and the….”. He enjoyed sports, tinkering with cars (before they were computerized) and playing cards. At his 60th birthday party his wife Jill surprised him with a red convertible, just as she had done for his 16th birthday. Sporting his famous “Guild” license plate, they traveled to and touted New Hampshire destinations as Granite State Ambassador volunteers. Their favorite place was Hampton Beach, where they first met.
Jim’s favorite pastimes, after his softball days, was golfing with his buddy’s and always looking for a good card game. His hands-on management style helped others whether it was teaching the kids to count (aka blackjack) or with his many employees. Jim started working in the Millyard during his high school years in the 1950’s and worked there until he retired in 1999.
The Guild’s are famous for their Saturday “tea time” gatherings. Jim and Jill enjoyed weekends swimming in their pool and thinking up activities to do with their kids, their kid’s kids and even kid’s kid’s kids. Everyone was always welcomed at the Guild house and Grandpa was always there to read a storybook or fix a toy. He taught each generation how to light the fireplace and how to mow the lawn to his exact specifications. During last week’s Tea Time, Jim visited with his brother Herbie Guild and his family, via Zoom.
When his grandchildren began to marry, Jim became a Justice of the Peace and officiated many family weddings. Jim was always the life of the party whether he was at weddings, celebrations, family reunions, or simply having dinner with family and close friends. His most recent party was a parade celebrating his 81st birthday, with decorated vehicles, horns blowing and his favorite music playing while he stood waving from his balcony like a king.
Jim, a faithful Catholic, was predeceased by his parents and his sister Connie Guild. His immediate family includes his wife Jill Guild and their seven children and spouses including Judi & Gary Window, James Guild Jr. &Nanette Nelson, Jacki & Greg Window, Joseph Guild, John & Amy Guild, Jacob &Leela Guild, and Jefferson & Michele Guild. His grandchildren include Abbie Crepeau, Jocelyn Deoleo, Jennifer Strout, James Guild III, Craig Window, Evan Schwaeger, Eric Window, Zachary Window, Jayna Guild, Jurell Guild, Casey Guild, Derik Guild, Quentin Guild, Devin Guild, Chip Alati, Kiernan Alati, Jenell Guild. His great-grandchildren include Joseph Crepeau, Kendall Crepeau, Anthony Bencosme, Jordan Strout, Vivianna Deoleo, Eva Deoleo, Jaclynn Strout, Maci Guild, Jaxson Ducharme, Ryder Ducharme, James Guild IV, Emma Window, Natalie Window, and counting…
