Railsback, Guy Fletcher  
Guy Fletcher Railsback November 12, 1925 - June 29, 2015 Guy was born in San Jacinto, California. He was the fifth child of Guy Herbert Railsback and Hattie Wright Railsback. He grew up in Whittier, California on his dad's dairy farm. Guy graduated from Whittier High School and was very active in his school reunions. He was a proud service member in the Army during WWII. Following the war, he went back and served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He was a true patriot to his country. He met and married his beloved wife, Nadine. Together they were married over 68 years. They had three sons, Craig, Lance and Scott. He later became a proud grandfather and was honored and grateful to be a great-grandfather. As an industrial developer for over 45 years, Guy built over 700,000 sq/ft of industrial and commercial buildings around southern California. He was a lifetime member of the Whittier Elks Club. Guy was also a member of the Whittier Exchange Club for many years. His community involvement was not just restricted to Whittier; Guy helped incorporate the city of Santa Fe Springs and was on the advisory board for the city. His son Lance is reminded of his dad as he reads the quote from English Pastor, Henry Scott Holland: "Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name [Popo} and speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, and think of me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was." His son, Craig, will always remember his dad for his decades of service in scouting - both with the cub scouts and the boy scouts. A friend of the family remembers Guy as intelligent, humorous and gracious. He demonstrated that success was not measured by an accounting of finances or possessions, but by the positive impact you can make on another person's life.
