Gyslain was born in Mattawa to Pauline and Gerard Lemelin. He was the middle child of three boys and grew up enjoying the outdoors, big trucks, and canoe trips.
Gyslain had a passion for long-haul truck driving. He made friends at every stop. He was deemed the highway angel and would stop to help anyone in need. He was always willing to lend a hand, and provide support no matter what the circumstance.
