The family provided us with this obituatuary:
Guy Julian Shields, 71, of Stone Mountain, GA, passed away peacefully at home on Sat, May 28th, 2011.
Born in Miami, FL on Sept. 19, 1939 to the late Samuel A. and Florence P. Shields, Guy leaves behind his best friend and wife of 5l years, Barbara Zee Shields, three children, daughter and son-in-law, Audrey and Jan Viljoen, son and daughter-in-law, Charlie and Toni Shields, son, Craig Shields, and brother, Lee Shields, as well as nine grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, a loving extended family and many friends. After graduation from Coral Gables High School in FL, Guy proudly served in the Marine Reserves, training as a field radio operator. His marriage to Barbara in 1959 also marked the beginning of Guy's 32-year career with IBM, where he was both an engineer and supervisor. His 55-year hobby of amateur (Ham) radio brought Guy (W4GBU) distinction the world over culminating in the DX Century Club's Honor Roll acknowledgement that Guy had officially contacted Hams in over 335 countries and territories. Guy and Barbara's love of travel brought them in contact with the Friendship Force, which led to a trip to Moscow in 1992, the first of many. Guy will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, his love of the ocean, gardening and fishing, computers and gadgets, history and the Antiques Roadshow, politics and Freedom Concerts, action movies and Star Trek. He will truly be missed.
