Arnold Zint Guy, 78, a resident of Cleveland, passed away on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, at The University of Tennessee Medical Center.

He was born on Sept. 14, 1939, in Polk County, a son of the late Richard and Frankie Guy.

He loved riding his motorcycle, enjoyed fishing trips, hunting, farming and gardening. He was no stranger to hard work, having owned his own roofing company for 33 years. He was an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Army, after faithfully serving his country. He was of the Baptist faith.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Sharon Montgomery Guy; six brothers: Brawner, Morris, Winston, Hoyt, Homer and Myles Guy; and two sisters: Retta McClure and Florence Perkins. 

 He leaves behind to cherish his memory, two sons: Mark Guy, and wife, Debbie, and Shane Guy, and wife, Amanda; five grandchildren: Brett, Magi, Manon, Cooper and Holland Guy; one sister, Wilma Ogle; his loving friend and companion, Mary Harris, and her family; many nieces, nephews and other extended family members; and a host of special friends.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday,  from 6 to 8 p.m. in the parlor of Companion Funeral Home.

A graveside service is planned for Thursday morning, Nov. 30, 2017, at 11 a.m. in the Sunset Memorial Gardens.

The funeral procession is scheduled to leave the funeral home at 10:15 a.m. on Thursday morning. Mark Guy, Shane Guy, Jim Guy, David Guy, Cooper Guy and Brett Guy will serve as pallbearers. The graveside service will begin with full Military Honors in recognition of his service to our country.
