He leaves his daughters and their husbands, Laura and Joseph Driscoll of Somers, Lisa and Martin Zaugg of Enfield and Jill and William Conley of Somers. He also leaves nine grandchildren, Charlie and Molly Driscoll, Lauren and Sam Cummings, Ryan, Rebecca and Nathan Zaugg and Luke and Anna Conley. He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Chelsea. He also leaves his very special friend, Nancy Galovich. Guy was lovingly cared for by Alicja Syta and they had "a very good life together; every day vacation." Guy was also blessed with many loyal and caring friends who raised his spirits with their frequent visits, weekly telephone calls, encouraging words and gifts of forbidden (but always eaten) sweets. Guy's daughters wish to express their sincere and loving thanks to all of you. Special thanks also to the staff at the ALS Clinic at the West Haven VA Hospital.
