#88) In Memoriam - Norris C. Guy

Guy, Norris Campbell,  age 80, of San Clemente, CA passed away at home on August 29, 2013. He was the beloved husband for 58 years of Jeanne Jansen Guy; loving father to Christopher (Laurie), Jeffrey, Jonathan, and Anne (Tracy) Brown; and proud grandfather to Ryan, Jennifer, Nicole, Jake, Jack, and Gabby. Norris was preceded in death by his grand-daughter Nicole.

Norris was born in Tacoma, WA on February 6, 1933 to Melvin and Marion Guy. His brother James preceded him in death and his sister Phyllis lives in Federa l Way, WA. He studied electrical engineering at Washington State College (University) where he met his college sweetheart, Jeanne. After graduation they were married and moved to Southern California to start their new life, originally moving to Van Nuys, but then settling in La Canada Flintridge for 40 years. After raising their four children they moved to San Clemente to enjoy the beach life. Norris was an electrical engineer for Singer Librascope and retired after 33 years. Even in retirement Norris was not one to sit idle, so he continued to maintain his rental properties in the Los Angeles area and commuted between Los Angeles and San Clemente weekly.

A memorial service celebrating Norris life will be held at San Clemente Presbyterian church on September 27 at 2:00 pm. He will be interred in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills.

Even though Norris did not serve the United States in the military, he has always had gratitude and a great respect for those that do, so the family is requesting that donations be made to Norris favorite charities the Fisher House ( or Wounded Warriors ( in lieu of flowers.
