Obituary

FERRO, Guy Forrest a third generation Tucsonan, died peacefully at home of Parkinson's disease on Monday, August 14, 2017. He would have celebrated his 77th birthday on September 12, 2017. Guy attended Tucson High and the University of Arizona, where he obtained a Masters Degree in urban planning. He was a member of the Delta Chi fraternity and a lifelong Wildcat. He worked for the City of Tucson, the University of Arizona, and TUSD. Guy loved to travel with his wife, Anne. His favorite trip was a barge cruise from Bordeaux to Toulouse, where he became a connoisseur of fine wines. A runner up was his Russian River Cruise, where he tasted every vodka that the country produced, and hence developed an affinity for Starka vodka Guy was known for his intelligence, rapier wit, and love of history. He was a great host, and could be found reciting poetry and making outrageous jokes at the dinner table. Above all, Guy enjoyed hanging out with his friends and never missed a Wednesday night poker game at Tucson Country Club (TCC), where he was a member for over 55 years. Guy could be found on the TCC tennis courts every weekend and was nationally ranked; he even played tennis two weeks before he died. He spent the last seven summers in La Jolla, CA, enjoying his beautiful home and time with his children, grandchildren and friends. Guy is survived by his wife of 54 years, Anne Thompson Ferro; his children, Dianne Ferro (Tim Mesarch) of Washington, DC, Lisa Ferro of Leesburg, VA, and Greg Ferro (John Heikel) of Arlington, VA; and grandchildren, Faith and Haley McCormick of Leesburg, VA. The Funeral Service will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017, at 4:30 p.m. at St Michael & All Angels Church, 602 N. Wilmot Road, Tucson, AZ. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St Michael & All Angels Church.
