Mr. Guy was born August 5th 1949, in Leonardtown to Joseph Clyde Guy and Dorothy Dillard Guy, nee Jones. Kenny had many talents and could do anything he set his mind to. He enjoyed sharing his talents with others. Most people who knew Kenny had an immediate connection, what you saw is what you got. One of his passions was riding motorcycles and road trips with his brother Charlie and his brother in law Charles to places like Sturgis and across country. He was also proud of the fact that while working he was able to earn a degree from Bismarck State College in Electric Power Technology. Kenny was an avid storyteller and enjoyed speaking. One of his favorite childhood stories was pretending to be Davy Crockett in the corn fields with his coonskin hat and his gun where he chased imaginary rabbits, squirrels and bears. He recalled his brother Charlie being Jim Bowie, equipped with his bowie knife, and their many feats of bravery. He never tired of reminding his sister Louise of putting ants in her pants when she was young. Kenny served in the United States Army from September 4th 1968 - September 9th 1971. He served a tour in the Republic of Vietnam from March 8th 1969 March 6th 1970 in An Loc Province. There he served primarily at Quan Loi, also known as LZ Andy. He recounted the most difficult part of his tour in Vietnam was the many that could never return home but he did. His greatest pride and joy in life was family especially his children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. Kenny will be waiting patiently for us to join him in the clouds.
Due to Covid-19 a service will be held at a later date.
