My sympathy for the family and friends of Guy. We were in all 12 grades together and were both from the old Uniondale. He always had a mind for science and I especially remember him reading lots of science fiction novels from the mobile library that would come to Rockcreek in the old days. Rest In Peace Guy.

Chad , Nate,Annie,Bard and the rest of the family; I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Your Dad was a great man, many times better than I am myself. Losing a parent isnt easy, there will be times of immense pain and regret for things done and undone. Dont dwell on these and remember all the good times you shared. Much love to you all.

I first met Guy about 5 years ago when I was at Arts in the Park in Antwerp. I always liked building stuff. When I saw all of the stuff that Guy had made I was thinking about how neat it all looked. Than about 2 years ago during the Arts in the Park festival we went to his tent again to look at all of the stuff he had built. I was really excited to look at it all. We started to talk to Guy and my mom was asking me what I thought and I was just smiling looking around. Then Guy invited me to come down to his shop and maybe do a project and learn about woodworking. So then about about a couple of days after the Arts Festival my mom and I walked down to his house and he showed me all of his tools and what he had made. I was so excited to start making projects. Guy told me to come down whenever I would like. So then a week later I rode my bike down to his house since he lived near us. He was home and so we started to work on a project. He said that we were going to make a cutting board. So we started on it. I was so excited and he showed me how to use the tools and what the steps were to making everything. Eventually my cutting board was finished and it meant a lot to me that it was the first thing Ive ever made. For about a year and a half I have been making projects with Guy. All of the things I have made have taught me so much. I am so happy that I was able to build these projects with Guy. I am definitely going to miss going down there to build projects. And I am going to keep doing what he loved and what I loved. Thank you for everything Guy. I will be praying for his wife (Denise) and his kids.

So sorry to hear of Guy's passing. He was a member of Lancaster Central High School Class of 1967. Due to consolidation we only went to high school for 3 years together. He will be sadly missed by fellow classmates. Hugs and prayers to the family in the days and weeks ahead. May God comfort you with precious memories that brings a smile and warms your heart.

Fondly known as Mr. Wizard at Rockcreek because he could invent, fix, or make anything. A great friend and a brave veteran. So many fond memories of growing up with Guy.

I met Guy when he came to my house to work on my ADT alarm. He was a very nice man and spoke loving of his wife and family. I was also from Antwerp so we had some common memories. My deepest sympathies to his wife and children.
