Guy French was a man of unwavering faith. He was tremendously funny and was known for his caring nature and unmatched talent on the drums. He was an incredible drummer and started when he was a young boy, as early as four years old. Guy played in a 50’s era band called Big Wheelie and the Hubcaps and many other local bands in the ’70s. He did a lot of traveling and played almost every local venue in town, bringing the children with him when he could; he once performed a sold-out show at the old Buffalo Auditorium Theatre. Guy was a true rock-n-roller and enjoyed checking out local talent and listening to all kinds of tunes from jazz to country.
When he wasn’t performing, he enjoyed fishing and spending mornings in the local coffee shop telling funny stories and making everyone laugh.
Guy loved his family and would go to bat for them, right or wrong, he was always on their side. His love for his children was unquestionable.
Guy was a humble man who loved to make people laugh and is missed every day for his bright personality and musical gift.
