I remember Guy from my junior high school days. He was someone I looked up to. I remember his 64 Impala at the Shell station where he worked. I also new his fiancee Tracy for we were in the same classes. I followed in Guys footsteps and joined the Marines. Never did I expect to be a pall bearer at his funeral! Guy I miss you and have you in my heart always. Glenn Zak SEMPER FI BROTHER!
