He often hosted a backyard fish fry on the Saturday following April 15 tax day, as a reason to get together with family and friends. His Fish Fries and Tomato Gravy were “chick-a-maw good”. Guy was known as the ‘candy man’ since he loved handing out candy canes with silver dollars attached at Christmas.
