Guy Easton Hollar
8/27/1990 - 12/03/2019
Guy passed away on Dec 3rd from injuries he sustained in a car accident on Thanksgiving afternoon in Washington county where he was living and working.
Our hearts are broken. Guy was such a wonderful child and person and from what we've seen he was loved by many. Guy had his demons that made his life hard and he was working hard to control them but it was a tough battle. It helped a lot that he had people around him that cared for him while he was away from home. One family that was helping Guy was Ken and Terry Steelman and their son's Kenny and Cory, They welcomed Guy into their home and he was headed there for Thanksgiving dinner when the accident happened. We are forever grateful for the home and family they were to Guy while he was there.
Guy also found a job that allowed him to work with troubled youth as an aide at care facilities. He said the work was hard seeing the problems they had and helped him to see his issues differently but he truly loved being there with the youth and was hoping he could find a way to make this his life work.
We would like to express our love to many of the people that Guy grew up with and were lifelong friends of his, Robert Perkes, Marcus Pacheo, his cousin Spencer Cluff, Jerron Barraclough, Justin Vineyard and Mary Gardner. We cannot list all the many others who loved Guy.
Guy is survived by his parents Michael and Cindy Hollar, his brother Travis and sister's Elizabeth and Alisha, and his grandmother Colleen Bennion and by many cousins on both sides who dearly loved him. He was greeted after his death by his sister Suzanne and grandparents, Rex P. Bennion, Boyce Hollar, Yvonne Gillette Hollar Norton.
He was thrown from the car, found unconscious and rushed to Dixie Regional Medical Center where they found that he had sever trauma to his brain stem, and was in a coma and never woke up.
After consulting with the doctors and staff treating him about what his future could be and having talked with Guy previously about a situation like this we made the decision to remove life support. We were told that it could take up to 10 days or more for Guy to pass but he passed away 6 hours after the ventilator was removed, which we believe means the injury was much worse than thought.
Burial of Guy's ashes will be Tuesday, December 17, at 2:00 pm where Guy will be interned with his sister Suzy and a graveside service in the Tooele City Cemetery. A family and friends lunch on December 28, 2019 at 1:00 at the Skyline Ward Church, 777 Skyline Dr. to share memories and photo's of Guy.
We are so grateful to everyone who helped Guy through the years, you all are forever in our hearts.
Please give your children a Hug and tell them you Love them and to WEAR YOUR SEATBELTS!!
