  1. The entire Amorin family extend our deepest condolences on the passing of Guy. He would always come over to visit when back in town. He either entered singing or left us with a tune before he had to go. One of my cherished memories was when he sang from Phantom of the Opera at Francie and Toms wedding. He had such a powerful voice and such sweet disposition and a great sense of humor. My mom met him years ago, at Gail Ann Donuts in Arlington I believe, she said he was always happy and singing even back then. I hope he is serenading Mom now heaven. Rest in Peace Guy and know you were loved…

  2. I remember seeing Guy in the Woburn Senior High Opraretta 1948, with my sister, the late Marjorie McDonough Doherty. They had the leads n my class walked to Woburn High School from the Goodyear Elementry in East Woburn. MaryMcDonough Carey RIP Guy.
