Harold Eugene Guy was born on Monday, April 4, 1927 to Willard and Pearl (Lawson) Guy in their home in the Brooky Bottom area of Nebraska. In 1944, he graduated from Wynot High School and enlisted in the Army Air Corp. Harold served in the military for 4 years and was also able to attend the University of Wyoming during that time. Following his discharge, he farmed in the Wynot area. On June 30, 1953, Harold was united in marriage to Teresa Rose Lammers in Yankton, SD. In 1955, Harold moved to Yankton where he worked for several stores, including Gambles’ Hardware. In 1959, he moved to Tyndall and opened his own Gamble’s Hardware until 1965 at which time he bought the Shady Rest Motel. In 2002, Harold retired after owning and operating the Shady Rest Motel for over 30 years. For 8 years, Harold managed the Tyndall Lanes Bowling Alley. Throughout his life, Harold was a devoted caretaker; from tending his garden to caring for his wife and son, no task was too big or too small. Harold was also a member of the American Legion, V.F.W., and the Knights of Columbus.
In 2010, Harold became a resident of the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall and it is there that he died on Thursday, April 24, 2014 having attained the age of 87 years and 20 days.
He is survived by two daughters, Barbara (David) Ebrite of Gainesville, Georgia and Denise (George) Mudder of Tyndall; one son, Jim Guy of Tyndall; two grandchildren, Erin (Blake) Masters and Tyler Ebrite; and one sister-in-law, Margie Guy of Hartington, NE.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Teresa Guy in 1992, his parents, Willard and Pearl Guy, and two brothers, Ray and Vernon Guy.
