When he joined the Navy, he became a helicopter search and rescue (SAR) aircrewman, serving 8 years in that position.
Following that, he operated a number of sensors as flight crew aboard the P-3 Orion antisubmarine/patrol planes for 12 years.
That time in rescue and as an aircrewmwan brought an acute awareness of safety procedures.
In 1993, he retired from the Navy as a Chief Petty Officer and moved the family to Southeast Ohio, opening and operating a computer business for a decade.
Due to a long-standing love of animals, when they closed the computer business, this farm boy and his spouse began Laymani Boxers, raising quality, nub-waggin' family dogs.
Over a decade later, Laymani Boxers continues to set the standard for a Family experience with lifetime support, a yearly Boxer Reunion, and a Facebook group just for their Boxer owners.
With the move from Silicon Valley to Ohio came a slower pace of life and, over the years, Guy has explored various art forms.
At this point, he has honed his skills at woodcarving, metalwork, painting, and leather crafting for years.
His leatherwork began with a Christmas gift from his wife and was specifically intended to keep Guy’s metal filings and wood shavings from his winter projects- out of the carpet.
His wife Denise thought Leather work would be the answer- and a passion another form of art for Guy - was born.
Ongoing leather projects include hand-carved and stitched leather motorcycle seats and tool bags.
