Guy K. Smith

Guy K. Smith, 76, passed away peacefully December 27, 2017, in Syracuse, New York. Guy was the only son of Edward C. and Winona K. Smith of Buffalo, N.Y.

Guy received his B.S. from Cornell University and his Ph.D. from Virginia Commonwealth University Medical College of Virginia. He found working as a medical physicist to be rewarding work and worked in that field until he retired.

Guy loved football and was a die-hard Buffalo Bills fan. He followed collegiate and high school games with relish. Panther and Black Tornado home games were a must for him to attend.

Formerly of Medford, Ore, Guy found joy participating fully in the life of the First Presbyterian Church there. With his love of music, he especially appreciated the organ.

Guy is survived by his wife, of 45 years, Genevieve White Smith; his sisters, Lois Smith and Gail Rivera; his nephews, Gordon Wilson (Kim); Patrick Wilson; Stefan White (Stacey); and Joshua White; his nieces, Emily White (fiancé Frank Farnach), and Melissa Spina; his four dear great-nieces, and extended family.

A memorial celebration of Guy’s life will be held at 1:30 PM on Sunday, February 18, 2018, at Gang Memorial Funeral Chapel, Syracuse, N.Y.

Donations in Guy’s memory may be made to the First Presbyterian Church, 85 S. Holly Street, Medford, OR 97504 or the church’s food pantry.
