Info. provided by his stepdaughter Nancy King.

When my mother met him, he was touring and playing sax with a "Big Band" company. They toured all over the country until Rock & Roll took over They moved to Phoenix, Arizona and he began repairing and restoring musical instruments. My mother was head book keeper for a trucking company which transferred her to Colorado. They lived there doing the same jobs until Guy started to show signs of mental problems. They moved to Belen to be closer to me, as I could help them. They lived there until he died. He spoke often of playing football in high school and in fact, lost his two front teeth during a game. I was married had a family by the time they met and married, and saw them infrequently until he became ill, so I did not learn too much about his life before then. I hope this helps you to know a little more about him. Signed Nancy King Info. provided by stepdaughter Nancy King, added by Lloyd Williams Nephew.
