Memories Timeline


  1. Guy was a wonderful man, husband,father and friend. We will surely miss him. Our deepest sympathies go out to Dee and her family. Always true friends.
    Love, Elene, John, Jeanne, and Ryan Sandorff

  2. Guy brought so much joy to our lives. He was a good friend and fun loving. He will be missed, but certainly not forgotten. With love to Dee and all the family, Cindy Tomb

  3. Loved your wonderful Dad. Have so many beautiful memories. From 4th of July to crawfish boils to Christmas Eves and Christmas bloodymarys. Will miss him so much. He is in a great place with no pain. Love you guys. Diane and Mike

  4. Guy was a fun, intelligent, interesting, brother-in-law. I always enjoyed our conversations and just being around him. I miss you, Guy and so does your puppy dog, Trooper.

  5. Our sympathy to Dee and family in your loss. In the 1980’s, I served with Guy in the 5337th Log, Reserve Unit at Fitzsimons. Even though we have been out of touch, we are sorry to learn of his passing in today’s paper. May he rest in Peace.

  6. Our thoughts and prayers to Dee and your family. Guy was my CO in the Logistics Command and helped me personally and our unit in ways members never knew. We also served in the Pentagon at the same time and crossed paths daily. I miss our times on the golf course at the AFA. Guy was a true friend and always stood for doing the right thing. A lesson never forgotten. I remember when many of us marched up the street singing “jody calls” for his birthday – what a sight. Guy stood for honor, dignity, integrity and was the definition of Class. He will be missed – but never forgotten. Colonel, rest in peace as you join the other heroes in Fort Logan.

  7. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Guy. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2 Corinthians 1:3

  8. Met Guy in the early 1960’s. We were TAC Officers at Infantry Officer Candidate School, Fort Benning, GA. We bonded right away and stayed in touch these many years. Guy visited us in Virginia, and we visited his family in Colorado. We have experience sad and happy times with these good friends. Guy and Dee once traveled with us on a French Riverboat cruise – the highlight being, if you could call it that, Guy having his pocket picked just after filling it up with EUROS at the ATM. That was a downer, but we still had fun on the cruise, and he enjoyed his cigars out on the deck. You and your family are in our prayers, Dee. Rest in Peace, old friend. Stan and Sue Gorski
