William “Bill” Guinn


Mr. William “Bill” Guinn, 91, of Seymour, entered eternal life Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Jackson County, Hamilton Township to the late Hubert G. and Mary M. Guinn.

On May 6, 1949, he married Mildred L. Toppe, who survives. Other survivors include a daughter, Debra K. Guinn, brother, Hubert G. Guinn, Jr., and two sisters, Ida Mae Stahl and Cathleen Surenkamp.

In addition to his parents, an infant son William Leroy Guinn Jr. preceded him in death.

Mr. Guinn never met a stranger and loved being around people and telling them about his Lord and Savior. He was a member of Seymour First Baptist Church. He taught Sunday School for over 60 years, was a 50-year member of The Gideons International and a certified lay speaker for the Methodist Church for over 50 years.

Bill was a veteran of the Marine Corp, receiving the Korean Service Medal among others. He was a member of Seymour Jackson Lodge #146 and the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite Valley of Indianapolis and was commissioned a Kentucky Colonel in 1978 by Kentucky Governor Julian M. Carroll. Mr. Guinn served as Past President of Jackson County Unit of American Cancer Society. He was a retired employee of Public Service Indiana, now Duke Energy.

Bill exemplified Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” He enjoyed the community that he was a part of and the service and love he was able to provide for its people. He always had a smile on his face and will be remembered as a Godly man. He was a wonderful example of dignity, hope and faith.
