Stephen Guy

13 December 1960 – 4 September 2019   

A note from the Dean

It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of Stephen Guy, our Canons’ Verger.

Stephen held this post for 21 years and was a greatly loved and valued member of our community. His ever-present readiness to help and support, his constant cheerfulness, his Christian faith – all these contributed to make him the lovely person he was. Stephen bore his final illness with courage and dignity and was an example to us all.

We shall miss him hugely.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave, Stephen’s husband, in his sadness, and with all Stephen’s colleagues and friends.

Stephen’s funeral takes place in Hereford Cathedral on Monday 16 September at 5.30 pm.

The cathedral choir will sing at the service and the address will be given by the Dean. The later time is especially chosen to enable Stephen’s friends and colleagues on the cathedral staff to attend. All are invited to refreshments after the service, which will take place in the cathedral and will provide us all with an opportunity to remember Stephen.

There is also a Book of Condolence currently located within the cathedral.
