Guy was a multi-sport athlete during his years at Premontre, competing in basketball as a freshman and sophomore, and in football and track all four years.

In 1970 he was a member of the undefeated state champion football team. A unique collection of size and talent earned six NCAA Division I scholarship offers among the senior group, as well as numerous local and state awards. Guy was a first team all-metro, all-conference and all-state selection. He also was elected to the Sunkist All-American and Scholastic Magazine All-American teams.

In 1971 Guy received numerous scholarship offers from across the country. He narrowed his choices down to the University of Notre Dame and University of Wisconsin. A tough decision that ended with him staying in state and playing four seasons for the Badgers as an offensive lineman.

Guy is a true family man and that was displayed when he left Madison in 1975 to come home to help his parents deal with his father’s illness and work with his Dad at the LoCascio Insurance Agency.

In the fall of 1975, he came back to Premontre to work as an assistant coach with Dick Hietpas, his line coach and lifelong friend. In 1978, he was part of a coaching staff that helped the team win another state championship for the Cadets. Guy did not coach football again until he helped St. Norbert College by coaching the linemen for a few years when his youngest went to college.

Guy married Bonnie Sladky in 1976. They have three children Matthew, Nathan and Joseph, all of whom attended Notre Dame Academy.

Guy worked with his father for several years in the insurance business. With two other partners they bought the insurance agency from his father and formed Insurance Associates.

Over the years Guy became involved with the automation facet of the insurance business and worked with a national advisory group. In 1992 Guy sold his interest in the agency and began doing automation consulting across the country. In 1997, Guy returned to the University of Wisconsin to fulfill a promise to his parents to finish his degree. After the completion of his degree, he attained the CPA designation and changed careers one more time.  He is currently the Controller for Orthodontic Specialists of Green Bay.

Guy was extremely fortunate to have parents that instilled a strong work ethic, a commitment to finish what you start and a mentality to do the best you can. He had teachers and coaches at Premontre that reinforced what his parents instilled in him.

His involvement with sports brought him great friendships and tremendous life lessons, including the importance of a group working together to achieve a goal. He also learned that while winning is fun and great, losing probably teaches better life lessons because at some point you need to know how to deal with adversity and not coming out victorious.
