Guy was a true friend of Marbold Farmstead. His company was one of our business supporters, and we greatly admired his plumbing skills and his community support. He was famous for his caramels, and I’ll bet he took his recipe with him. All who came in contact with him thought the world of him. Thank you, Guy, for being part of our lives.
