Born in Worcester, MA on March 25, 1946 he was the son of Lawrence A. and Marion (Graham) Bacon, was raised in Worcester and moved to Douglas 53 years ago in 1968.
Mr. Bacon owned and operated Debits and Credits, an accounting and bookkeeping company in Douglas since 1990, retiring in 2014. Always a people person, Guy made folks feel at ease during tax time with his talkative, lighthearted personality. Previously he worked in Public Accounting. He was educated at North High School, Worcester Junior College, and earned his BA at Clark University in 1972. He served in the US Army’s Finance Corp. and was stationed in Korea and Germany.
Active in his community Guy served on the Douglas Zoning Board of Appeals for 19 years. He directed the Douglas High School Marching Band’s Flag Team and Winterguard and belonged to their Band Booster Club. An avid golfer he played in the Blissful Meadows Golf League. Planting and caring for his veggie garden was a joy and similar to raising his 3 girls. He nurtured them, weeded out the bad aspects, and was rewarded with beautiful children whom he was proud of. One of his favorite things was hearing the sound of their laughter. One of the happiest days of his life was when Brooklynne came into his family. She always made him smile.
Another thing guy loved was traveling with his wife. They went to such places as North Dakota, the coast of California, Puerto Rico, Aruba, and of course Arkansas, to visit his sister and brother-in-law. Above all, Guy loved his life. He was a friendly, fun, local gentleman who will be missed by his family and friends.
