A thorough and painstaking teacher, his regime lasted through 13 years

The old school building in which Mr. Guy served as teacher still stands in 58 Hoover street. During the period 1889 to 1920 Mr. Guy served as a city mail carrier, retiring from this position at age 69. Last April 2, Mr. and Mrs Guy had quietly celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary in their home.
He is survived by his wife, Dora E. Guy, of the home and nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Four children have preceded him in death.The body will be moved from the E. V. McCament funeral home to the residence in 202 Buckingham street. Funeral services will be held in the A.M.E. church. Conducting the services will be Elder W. R. Robinson of the Seventh Day Adventist church, Columbus, of which Mr. Guy was a member. Mr. Robinson will be assisted by Rev. Gaar Davis of the A. M. E. church. Burial will be made in Cedar Hill cemetery.
