Guy was born to Sarah and Harley Duggan on April 29, 1930, in Coolidge, Arizona. He went to grade school and junior high in Pitcher, Oklahoma and graduated from high school in Pittsburg, Oklahoma. Following graduation he served in the Navy and later the Army. After completing his military service he worked for Frito Lay, retiring after 37 years as Regional Sales Manager. He then became Marketing Manager for Adams Extract for another 12 years.
Guy was fortunate to enjoy 65 years of marriage to his wife Florene. Their commitment and love for one another serves as a model for what marriage is intended to be. Though
Guy had many areas of love, his greatest commitment was to his family and his love for music. When he was not spending time with family or enjoying his music, he could be found at the lake, fishing rod in hand.
Guy is survived by his wife, Florene and his children Gyelene Patterson, Traci Thrift and husband Bob, David Duggan and wife Stephanie, Lisa Burch, and son-in-law Carlos Lamadrid; grandchildren Ken Lamadrid and wife Carly, Justin Duggan and wife Connie, Cody Duggan, Billy Bonham and wife Mariah, Lauren Lamadrid, Kelsee Burch, and Duggan Burch. In addition he is survived by his four great-grandchildren, Adyson, Max, Cooper, and Logan.
