George Albert Guy
George Albert "G.A." Guy died Tuesday, January 22, 2013. His family and friends will remember his inexhaustible sense of humor, and his decades of civic and philanthropic work.
Born July 14, 1923, he lived a rich life of adventure and service. He graduated from Queen Anne High School and the University of Washington
with a degree in Pharmacology. He was a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity. G. A. felt the highlight of each year was spending the entire summer at the family home on Bainbridge Island. He served as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy
and skipper of an LCI that saw action in the Pacific theater during World War II
. He was the third generation principle owner of G.O. Guy drugstores. G.A. served as director of Seattle Pacific University Fellows in the Development office from 1980 until 1998. He provided more than half century of board leadership for Seattle YMCA Camps, Camp Orkila and Camp Coleman. He participated in the Seattle Chamber of Commerce; and was a long time member of the Seattle Rotary Club
. G.A. felt his most important service was to the spiritual life of Queen Anne United Methodist Church where he attended his entire life. G.A. and his wife Marjorie travelled extensively, visiting over 60 countries.
He is survived by the love of his life of 64 years, Marjorie Guy, his sons and daughters-in-law-Howie and Patti of Tacoma, Doug and Liz of Kennewick, Mark and Diann of Seattle, and Bruce and Beth of Bainbridge Island-as well as his eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
