Guy was born on June 25, 1932, to Cyrul and Violet (Stillwell) Barham in Riceville, Tennessee. He left high school to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He served in several locations ending his service at Spang Dahlen Air Base, Germany.

In 1954, Guy met Voncille White in Atchinson, Kansas. Guy and Voncille were married on December 24, 1954, and went on to have two children, Vickie and Patricia.  

When Guy retired, he spent his time gardening, repairing small engines, fishing, and was a Deacon and Elder at the Oak Grove Baptist Church, Jonesburg, MO. 

Guy was predeceased by his beloved wife of 67 years, Voncille, and his parents, Cyrul and Violet. He is survived by his daughters, Vickie Marie (Lowell) Davis and Particia Ann (James) Swagman; his grandchildren, Nicole (Tom) Granese, Heather (Chris) Robison, Brandon (Ellen) Swagman, and Chad (Jackie) Swagman; his great-grandchildren, Alexa Granese, Tyler Swagman, Anderson Swagman, Evan Swagman, and Miles Swagman.
