Guy was born in Columbia and a graduate of USC. His siblings were James, Wini, and Diane. He was a general practitioner physician for 10 years in Greenwood, S. C. He left that for a four year residency at Bowman Gray to become a general pathologist.

In 1971, George I. Rentz recruited Dr. Calvert (age 41) to be the founding pathologist & laboratory director at the new Lexington County Hospital where Guy served a term (Oct. 1974-througn Sept. 1976) as the hospital's 3rd Chief of the Medical Staff. He also started a long-term relationship between the Lexington Co. coroner's office (Baron B. Schumpert...then with Harry O. Harman, Jr.) and Guy's pathology group, Pathology Associates of Lexington, P. A. and was part of that pathologist team until nearly the day he died in late 1987 (16 years as a pathologist, all at Lexington).

In late 2016, Dr. Mark Keisler reminded me of what a huge help Guy had been in the life...many, many years ago...of a then young man who became a pathologist, Dr. Earle Smith "Smitty" McCollum (Mark's med. school room mate).

In the spring of 1987, imaging at MUSC suggested a pancreatic mass. In May/June, Guy and Ella went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester; it was inoperable. He returned to work in October and worked through Friday, Dec. 12th, attending and thoroughly enjoying the annual lab Christmas party on Dec. 14th. Having the next week off, he died in his sleep Dec. 17th.

Children with his first wife, Patricia "Pat" Brazelle Calvert, are James Guy "Jamey" (1957-2006) & Babs Mahan of Atlanta; and they adopted Brett, and Kelly. And his fourth child, "Pete" (G. A., III), is by his second wife, Ella Raymond Calvert Bouknight (now widow of J. W. "Joe" Bouknight ).

Guy was a beloved citizen and friend in every community within which he lived.
