    Ralph was one of the most interesting people I've ever had the pleasure to know. He was kind, generous and always had a pleasant and upbeat attitude. He was an innovator, a problem solver, and a good friend that was taken from us too soon. Our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to Barbara and the family at this time of great sorrow

    Mrs. Guy, Paula, DeWayne, and family, I was saddened to learn of Mr. Guy's passing. He had a big personality and could flash a big smile that could light up Wilmington. It has been a long time since I have seen him, but some people are unforgettable. I know the pain of losing a great father, but I also know the gratitude that comes from having been blessed to have a great dad. DeWayne and Paula, I know you know what I mean. I will be praying for God's peace and comfort for your family in the coming days.
