I’ve been at a loss to how to even put into words how special my father in law means to us all. Soooo many wonderful memories I’ve had with him over the years I’ve been in this family. It never felt right calling him Guy so I always called him Pops he would chuckle when I called him that every time. This past Christmas we went over for Christmas Day with them & I thought it would be funny to see how he’d react to a head massager I seen at Walmart just for $1 he was so tickled by it my daughter actually massaged his head while he laughed & she laughed made my heart so happy to see that moment. Then, also before me & Laurin met I worked at Walmart and he and his dad would come in once a week for their weekly run either Tuesday or Wednesday when Laurin was off, Pops got a few groceries & he’d get his gas in his car & his lunch it was such a special time between he and Laurin. (That’s how me & Laurin met). They had their own language & jokes between them it’s like they could read each other’s mind,lol. He would also pat the kids heads & mine each time we hugged as he also did to others( guess it was his thing,lol). Those are just a few of my memories with this special soul! Goodness we miss him so so very much.

WOW..........So many good memories. The first thing that comes to mind, and I surely don't know why LOL, but when I was around 5 years old and mom and dad were at work, he would scramble eggs for me and I did not want eat them. He told me to put ketchup on them and I would like them. I'm now 62 years old and still put ketchup on my eggs. I will always love my brother.....may you now rest forever in the arms of Jesus. Until we meet again, your loving sister, Barbara.

I have lots of memories of my brother in law.
Once he and Jo came down for Christmas back in the 90's ,when he wasn't so nervous to drive in all the traffic coming in and out of New Orleans.. We had a Christmas party and we were all singing karaoke, and we'd all take turns by passing the Mic ,but when it got to Guy's turn... let's just say, that's where the Mic stopped! LOL! He never wanted to give it up! Thank God he could sing good, and we didn't mind listening to him. He had a voice like Merle Haggard.
Also his laugh was infectious... not sure if I was laughing at something funny or just laughing because he was laughing! He always put his Big hand on the top of my head to show me some love. He also use to let me sit on his feet and walk me around for fun when I was a little girl.
R.I.P. brother- in- law You will be miss....

My brother in law was a man of few words, but when he did have something to say, it was usually comical. Guy was never in a hurry to get somewhere ,unless it was home before dark ! Lol ! He loved my sister, his son and family, and he loved his dog Jack. He loved fishing and he loved eating out , but most of all he loved our Lord Jesus Christ. What a happy day when he accepted Jesus as his savior. We witnessed him being ordained as a deacon of his church. Most people don’t know that Guy could sing REALLY well and we were lucky enough to listen to him sing with Jo in church in the choir . We will miss him during our future visits to AL.

So many special memories.........our phone conversations, always full of laughs about the "good ol' days", our fishing trips, especially the time at Tom Holt's pond. Little Guy had caught a really nice bass, and put it on the stringer. Just as he put it back in the water, we both realized we hadn't secured the stringer to the boat! The look on his face, as he watched that bass, and stringer, swim away. That was a good day! One, of so many.

Little Guy was the best brother, friend, and, brother-in-law, a person could ask for. He will be greatly missed, but, always in our hearts.
