Guy Day Hartless, Jr.

June 16, 1955 - July 16, 2023

Guy Day Hartless, Jr., 68, went to be with his Lord and Savior on July 16, 2023.

Guy, Jr. was born on June 16, 1955, a son of the late Guy Day Hartless and Annie Elizabeth Hartless.

Guy was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart, first wife of 38 years, Linda Mull Hartless; an infant brother; brothers, David and Stevie; sisters, Lucy, Nancy and Patsy; and a great-niece, Hazel Ann.

Guy is survived by his loving wife, Sherri Hartless, who has stood by him through health and sickness for the past nine years; and his furry companion, Peter Lee. He is also survived by his children and their spouses, David Hartless (Dinah), Mandi McComas (Will), and Justin Hartless (Courtney); a step-daughter, Kayla Sholes (Joe).

Guy loved his grandchildren and each held a piece of his heart; Michael David, Daytona, Little David, David, Zack, Cody, Sadie, Sophie, Bentley, Jordan, Alayna, Kennedy, Lincoln, and Nixon; and great-grandchildren, Clay and Braylee.

Guy is also survived by his brothers, Paul (Karin) and Jeffrey; sisters, Jackie (Danny) and Jenny (James); a sister-in-law, Dana (Monty); a brother-in-law, Jay (Amy); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Guy was passionate about his career with Lanford Brothers, where he served for over forty years. There, his coworkers became family. We are certain Guy, Jr. and Jr. Huffman are in heaven pouring a bridge together.

Guy loved the Lord, his church and “HIS” Pastor. He began his journey at Victory Worship Center in late 2020 where he became a member and was baptized by Pastor Ray Eppard on November 14, 2021.

A celebration of life will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 by Pastor Ray Eppard at Victory Worship Center, 200 Hammond Lane, Staunton, VA.

As Guy would say, “Everything will be alright. It will all work out.”
