I’ve had the honor and privilege of knowing Mr. Guenther since I was a freshman at Canyon High School. I cannot ever recall a time when Willie wasn’t smiling - and he always spread that smile to everyone around him. I know he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Rest In Peace, Mr. Guenther - and thank you for all the genuine smiles you shared with us - and for helping us all smile a little more too.
