Subase Pearl Harbor Det 716 


After 22 years of service in the United States Marine Corps Guy moved his family and their 24’ x 54’ mobile home to Monticello, Minnesota in 1976 to seek employment in the civilian world and begin the 2nd act of his life.

After being unemployed for several months Guy went to work in 1977 for Detector Electronics Corporation as production supervisor. In October 1978 he was transferred to the position of supervisor of the packing/shipping Dept.

In 1980 Guy purchased 1.5 acres of land in what is now known as Otsego, Minnesota and moved his mobile home there from Monticello.

IMG_5603-2.jpgGuy was very active in the Community Methodist Church in Monticello and has served on all the committees and chaired several.

Guy’s wife Evelyn suffered a stroke in 2001 and due to the seriousness of it Guy was faced with the task of becoming the main caregiver for her.  Then in 2008 Evelyn broke her hip and was taken to a care center in Anoka.  Due to complication that set in, she never made it home as she passed away at the care center.

In November, 2011 Guy was the MWSS 471 Guest of Honor at the 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball.

On 28 April 2012 Guy, along with 97 other Vets, some WW II Vets, some Koran War Vets and the remaining Viet Nam War Vets were flown to Washington D. C. from St. Cloud, Minnesota to visit the memorials.  The one day trip was arranged and provided by the St. Cloud hub of Honor Flight.  He enjoyed the trip and was grateful that he was able to go.
