Guy, Jr. accepted Christ at an early age. He was a faithful and proud member of Lively Stone Church of God in Nortonville, KY where he was baptized in 1959. He returned to worship at Lively Stone in recent years.

While attending high school, he met the love of his life, Patricia Ann Morris, when they were just 13.   In 1964, Guy graduated from Rosenwald High School in Madisonville, KY. Guy was a hard worker from the age of 17.   Although he had aspirations of joining the Air Force, he was drafted into the United States Army in 1966 during the Vietnam War. Guy proudly served and became a Specialist Military Police Officer. During his tour of duty, he traveled from Barcelona, Spain to Paris, France before being stationed in Germany from 1966-1968. Following his time in Europe, he attended Spencerian Business School and worked for the Louisville Courier-Journal before returning home to Hopkins County.
