He grew up in the Doherty home and lived there until he was drafted into World War II where he served as a Medic in the jungles of New Guinea. After the war he returned to Elton for a short time and then moved to Lake Charles where he worked and retired from Cal-Cam Tractor Company. Guy was an exercise enthusiast and he spent many hours of the day walking as much as five miles a day. He accredited his longevity to his great exercise program and encouraged everyone he met to get into an exercise program.

Doherty of Elton and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He will be missed by all.

Memories Timeline


  1. Mr. Finch lived in close proximity to my family over the past 40 years. He was there during our childhood & has seen us grow into adults. We watched him transition from working into retirement. He was quiet, respectful and kind. He never complained. His smile and daily hellos we will carry with us forever until we meet again.

  2. I'll always remember that Uncle Guy gave the best hugs and he used to tell me if I ate the crust on my bread I would get curly hair 🙂 Uncle Guy, we love you and will miss you!

  3. Sorry I cannot be with you at this time, but my prayers are. I know Guy will be missed by many. With Sympathy "Sammie"
