On the 25 th of March 1978 a gift of a fourth child, of five children was given to Mr. and Mrs.
Franz Guy Sr. They named the newest member of the family; Clifford Duncan Guy. Dad was proud to
name his son after his dear friend and employer at that time.
Cliff went to Primary School at Central Christian School and Highschool at St. John’s College
where he graduated. He wanted to enter the working force instead of continuing his studies. He was then
employed at the Ministry of Housing where he stayed for a while.
However, his constant visits to Caye Caulker with Dad, Lenton and Leon made him realized his
deep love for the seas. This led him to pursue one of his fondest dreams of becoming a certified Dive
Master, so he would be soaring in the deep with the creatures of the sea especially the dolphins. He
accomplished this dream and was employed by Mr. Skip Taylor at Coral Reef Resort as a dive master for
some years. His love for the seas and dolphins was great. He would describe every tour he gave as an
adventure and his greatest admiration lies with the dolphins. We saw him enjoying his job as a Dive
Master for some time and then he got the news of the relocation of Mr. Taylor to the U.S.A. He then
decided to join his brother, Lenton Sr. at Belize Brewing Company. He stayed for a few years but being
the roving person he was, he decided to try security. He hopped through many security companies here
until he decided to stay at K.B.H. Security where his brother-in-law, Henry was. He remained there until
it was time for him to relocate to the U.S.A.
He left Belize and went to L.A. and was employed by G4S Secure Solutions; he enjoyed his job
which allowed him to travel to many parts of the U.S.A. He was aspiring to be a Firearm Instructor within
the same company, just then, God called him home.
Throughout his life he always placed family with the highest regards. His nieces and nephews
will always remember him for his caring, attentive and free-giving spirit. Once Clifford decides to get
something for one of them, there is no changing his mind. He was always adamant that no matter what
we, his siblings, would say. He would simply respond, “You can get mad, but you have to get pleased
eventually.” And would do just as he pleased and then say, “My nieces and nephews are my children
He would always keep Moms on her P’s and Q’s making sure she is Okay. Voicing his opinions
most times loudly but sometimes softly, but he surely gets his points across. Then would say, “I am taking
care of Moms like I promised Dad”.
He enjoyed special moments with his nieces Nadiya (Nadz) and Shahida (His Cosey) always
encouraging them to study and do good in school. He would often say to them, “Aim for the Moon and if
you miss, you’ll end up among the stars”.
He would enjoy outings with his nephews Lenton Jr. and Franz Guy 3 rd going shopping or
investigating a new food joint as food was his LOVE and DELIGHT. He can enjoy many different plates
of food for the day.
He also enjoyed playing Call of Duty on the Iphone with Lenesie and Jayden.
Clifford and Lenton Sr. shared wonderful memories of fishing trips as he loved the sea.
Clifford and Leon Sr. shared exciting moments when it comes to gadgets and computers. They
loved electronics and he wouldn’t hesitate to request assistance from his little bro.
He and I use to have long distance conversations about matters happening in Belize as he was
always well up to date with the current events, and he would always voice his opinions too.
Cliff had the utmost respect for our favorite Aunt, Aunt Cora. Whenever one would mention,
“Aunt Cora”. Everything goes into prospective right away.
He considered Aunt Ver, his friend, he was always able to chat freely with her whether it was to
get help or advice on something.
“Black Bwai” as Henry would call him and he would respond, “What’s up Ugly?” They had
much to discuss as they both shared the same interest, SECURITY. He always wanted Henry to be
updated with all the latest security gears.
Many evenings he would seek Iselia and say, “Mum weh you cook? Daddy always seh follow
your nose!” Then eat and whisper to her not to tell moms.
Cliff also enjoyed chatting with Jasmin, calling her, “You Mexican” as he inquired about baby
Leon. She would reply, “I am no Mexican”, and he would smile.
His latest joy was when Leon Guy Jr. (Uncle Handsome Baby) was born. He spent much time
with his baby nephew. Whose pet name for him was “Tugulee”. They would often watch Toodles, play
games or be facetiming me in Belize practicing to say, “Auntie Pooh”. He loved Baby Leon! He treasured
the nights they would sit on the steps watching the moon and the stars. He taught Baby Leon to say
“stars” and “moonlight”. Cliff would give an affectionate smile when he would hear Baby Leon say,
“Tugulee, Tugulee”. He knew that was his baby nephew calling him.
Clifford was the most outgoing of the family and we will surely miss him:
Mom: will miss hearing, “What’s on the menu Moms?”. She would reply “Did you leave a cook
Leticia: will surely miss his radiant smile and warm welcoming. Clifford always treated me as his
sister not only by father, but as if we had both parents in common. I would like to thank

Granny Ma Flo: will miss his smiles and conversations they usually share.
Today is a very sad day for us, whatever was not done is left undone Clifford. Your wings were
ready, but our hearts were not. Fly bro, to the sky. We love you and until we meet again beloved Son,

Converse with the Angels Cliff,
