I worked with Guy at RO.
He drove to Austin to attend a two-day software schedule class that I was conducting a few months back. There was probably 8-10 people attending. He was the only one from the Houston office in that class. And he was brand new at RO; he did not know anyone. He was also the oldest in the class which was full of young guys all talking and carrying on.
Computers were not his forte and the software was new as well. I remember he asked a lot of questions during the class. He tried to keep up, and I tried to encourage him; I admired his determination. After the second day ended on Friday, he drove back to Houston. I remember vividly that next day (it was a Saturday) he called me with questions - he was working in the software going back through the exercises we had done in class. He truly wanted to understand. Over the next several weeks we had regularly scheduled online meetings to continue his training. He had his own setup in the software so he could practice. He had learned to copy and paste data for practice - he had SO MANY duplicates. But HE WAS DETERMINED.
He really wanted to be an asset in his work. He did not let distance, age, technology, or a new work environment deter him from striving to be the best he could for himself and for the company.
I am extremely, extremely saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with those he has left behind.

Blonde hair, blue eyes, a smile that was genuine and made you feel welcomed. He left home at 18 and set out to make his own way never looking back. Determined to start his career he started in the field of construction. He was a hard worker, carried himself with pride and dignity in every phase of his life. Guion, was a family man and loved deeply. I love you brother, rest in peace.

Guion was named after one of our father's best friends and the McKenzie is for my mother's maiden name that we have used in our family many times meaning the "fair one". I remember blue eyes, winning smile, honor, dignity and respect. Love you brother
