Guy was born in Hamlin, TX on June 4, 1960 to Charlie F. Turner & Martha Gage Turner. He attended Hamlin School until graduation in 1978. Guy attended Texas Tech University and Cisco College.
On January 25, 1983 he started on the Abilene Fire Department and retired as a lieutenant May 12, 2010. Guy served with the Abilene Fire Department for over 27 years. He held the title of President Emeritus at Texas State Association of Fire Fighters (TSAFF). He proudly represented and worked hard for Texas fire fighters on the TSAFF Board of Directors for 18 years. He was president of the TSAFF for the last 12 years of his board affiliation.
TSAFF is part of the International Association of Fire Fighters, Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA’s) largest supporter for 65 years. Without Guy’s support and encouragement, the Texas Sean McKinnis Charitable Solicitation Law, which protects Texas Fire Fighters’ right to collect on the streets during their annual “Fill the Boot” campaign (which has been replicated in at least nine others states), would never have been possible. His actions protected the millions of dollars that are collected in their boots by Fire Fighters across the country for MDA’s camps, patient services and research.
Guy is survived by his wife Jennifer; son, Rob Hudman and wife Lindy of Albany; son, Josh Hudman and wife Taylor of Lubbock; daughter, Jacie Rehm & husband Cody of Goldthwaite; and two grandchildren, Kasen and Kameryn of Albany; his uncle, Blanton Gage of Talco; his aunt, Cathy Warick and her husband Mervin of Clyde; aunt, Grace Oliver of Abilene; his brother in law, Clint Wheat of Hamlin; his nephew, Chance Brown; his great nephew, Austin; and numerous cousins.
Guy is preceded in death by his parents, Charlie and Martha; and his sister, Sharla Wheat.
