On Wednesday, October 26, 2022, Harold Andrew Guice, a beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away at age 86. Born on May 18, 1936 to Harold W and Annie Guice in Meadeville Mississippi, Harold graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in civil engineering in 1959. He used that degree to design bridges, rail lines and power generation plants in Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Indonesia and Thailand, playing a critical role in the design of the McGuire and Catawba nuclear power plants.
Harold is survived by Bobbie, his wife of 34 years and by his three sons from his first marriage – Harold Jr., Gregory, and Scott and two sons from his second – Paul and Mark. He is also survived by seven grandchildren that he loved dearly – Caroline, Courtney, Andrew, Stephen, Savannah, David and Ian.
His kids fondly recall trips in the family station wagon across the United States where they could see the natural beauty preserved in our national parks. Camping in a pop-up tent or staying in Civilian Conservation Corp lodging, the family was given so many memories to cherish.
Harold was also an avid golfer who enjoyed playing at Cowan’s Ford Country Club where he made the turn at 16 passed the home he designed for himself and Bobbie. He managed to get three hole-in ones on the course out of the hundreds of rounds he played there.
To ensure Bobbie was not a typical golfer’s wife, he and Bobbie made a point of traveling, often with his brother Mickey and sister-in-law Eva, seeing much of the world, including visiting four continents and every state in America.
Harold also loved gardening, growing a bountiful garden (almost) every year. He also enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandkids, teaching them about his life lessons and golf.
The funeral will be held on Saturday October 29, 2022 at 11:00 AM at Raymer-Kepner Funeral Home.
A celebration of life reception will immediately follow the service at 16501 Sutters Run Lane, Huntersville, NC 28078.
For a farm boy from humble beginnings in rural Mississippi, his was a life lived very well. Please consider making a donation to Atrium Levine Cancer Institute at: https://fundraise.atriumhealthfoundation.org/give/255928/#!/donation/checkout.
