Guyton, Thomas "Tom" - Jefferson, Colorado  
The bowman hones in on his target, retracts his arm, exhales softly, and relaxes. Peace. Focus. Release. Send the arrow home. Tom "Straight Arrow" Guyton passed away peacefully on April 23, 2016 from an eight month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was a family man of high moral character and unquestionable integrity. Tom was born in 1943 in Providence, Rhode Island to Harold and Margaret Guyton. He had one older brother, William, who died when Tom was only 11. He spent his early years in Agawam, MA in the outdoors. As an Eagle Scout and Vigil in the Order of the Arrow, Tom spent his summers working at a Boy Scout camp on the water. Some of his fondest memories were of his times looking out over the water after all the campers had gone to sleep. Tom graduated from NE Technology Institute in Boston, MA. He spent 42 years in the heating and cooling business, with many of those years spent as a sales executive and career coach at Trane in Tyler, TX. Tom had an opportunity through his job to travel with his wife Barbara. His favorite destinations were Glacier National Park; Camden, ME; Mykonos and Santorini, Greece; and Zermatt, Switzerland. Tom was married to Barbara Sweeney in 1968 in Orchard Lake, MI. They were married for 47 years. Tom and Barbara arrived in Tyler in 1981 and stayed until 2011 when they moved full time to Colorado. Over the past decade, Tom enjoyed his time at the family cabin in Winter Park, CO and at the Guyton Ranch in Jefferson, CO. He enjoyed his time outdoors going for walks and working on projects. He was very handy at remodeling buildings and was a leather craftsman. Over the past four years, he spent most weekends at his son's ranch working side by side with him to restore old barns and remodel a farmhouse. In his last year, he worked throughout the night to create individualized leather and fur arrow quivers for each of his children and grandchildren. Tom was a Christian man of integrity and wisdom. He was an example to many of how to distinguish right from wrong. He coached many young men through his time in scouting, at work, and in life. He was known for saying "...do it right the first time and anything that is worth doing is worth doing well." He often imparted simple wisdom to those whom he coached. In his last days, he summarized life in the following ways: People with drive and common sense aren't very common. Doing things right the first time and a quest for learning new things through reinvention is a critical differentiator for success and happiness. Children are the most amazing gift. The uniqueness of each gender alone is overwhelming. There is no substitute for quality time in a child's development. My kids were by my side because my wife and I have been at theirs. You win at work when you learn to invest in others. My success in business was not based on how smart I was; instead success is due to confidence, resilience, and a deep commitment in building up and leading others. Faith matters. I have found praying outside in peace and solace easier and more natural than in a church. While God is always present, he is with us most when we need Him most. Getting outside. We can find peace and meaning in almost any setting, whether it is a stroll alongside the Texas bluebonnets or huffing up a Colorado mountainside. Tom is survived by his wife Barbara, son Dr. Brad Guyton and his wife Allison, daughter Kristin and husband Dr. Joel Sayre, and his six grandchildren Clarissa, Grayson, Tyler, Clayton, Ava, and Chet. Also, he is survived by his brother-in-law Dr. Pat Sweeney and wife Diana, niece Dr. Dawn White and husband Dan, and nephew Eric Sweeney and numerous great nieces. The Guyton family will host a Celebration of Life service at the T.L. Guyton Chapel and Meetinghouse at the Guyton Ranch in Jefferson, CO on Memorial Day Weekend. In lieu of sending flowers, you may send a donation to the St Jude Tribute Program c/o Tom Guyton Fund at St. Jude's Cancer Hospital at www.stjude.org (click on "donate now", fill out billing info, and on designation screen enter "Tom Guyton" or account number 40653209) or mail check to PO Box 1000 Dept. 142 Memphis, TN 38148-0142. When asked, "why St. Judes?" Tom said, "Because they help little kids with cancer and try not to burden the families with finances." Tom Guyton was a strong, good man who lived an honorable life. He will be missed. Some arrows fly through the air haphazardly with no direction and are soon forgotten. Some arrows leave the bow with intent, but lose their way. And occasionally, once in a while, an arrow knows where it is going, pierces the air with intention, and hits its target. "Straight Arrow" Tom stayed the course, traveled far, and has now bullseyed his last target. Peace. Focus. Release. Send the arrow home.
