ObituaryShare A Memory

Guy Stephen Cummings went to be with Jesus Monday, August 27, 2018 at 10:30pm at Cottage in the Meadow, Yakima, WA.  His long fight with cancer and pain is now over.

Born on August 24, 1946 to Clyde and Charlotte Cummings in Los Angeles, California, Guy was your typical handsome, blonde surfer boy.  He graduated from Arcadia High School in CA and played football for Citrus Community College in CA (until they realized he wasn’t attending classes!) He loved sports and played baseball and football. Guy grew up rooting for the LA Rams but his real love was the Oregon Ducks! He and his wife Sherry held season tickets for more than 25 years. Go Ducks! Guy dearly loved family and friends. He was the truest friend you could have, and his siblings would say “Guy had the most amazing sense of humor. They laughed through the most difficult times and will miss the late-night chuckle sessions.”  
 
As a free spirit Guy held many jobs including fishing in Alaska, various sales positions and lastly, real estate sign installation in Yakima.  He was a gifted pianist and played for his home church, Trinity Nazarene. He loved his church and church family. An avid reader, he would read three newspapers per day.  (He did not believe in internet news.) 
 
Above all, his greatest love was what he found in Jesus Christ, his “merciful” Lord. Guy settled down and married his soul mate Sherry in 1985. After 16 years in Portland, OR they moved to Yakima, WA to be hands on grandparents to eventually 7 grandchildren in Washington, and 2 in California. They sure loved their Papa. 
 
Guy is preceded in death by his father Clyde, mother Charlotte, and sister Bridget. He is survived by Sherry who he called “his wonderful wife” of 33 years.  Along with their children Erin (Tony), Matt (Kristi), Rebecca (Doug), Brenda (Bryan), and grandchildren Tiffany, Lexi, Hunter, Brooklynn, Parker, Autzen, Alexi, Paisley, Capri and great granddaughter Baby Brielle, Guy’s brother Eric (Marilyn), sister Sheila (Smitty) and his beloved dog Daisy.
 
The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the Cottage in the Meadow staff for their compassionate and tender care in Guy’s last days and moments, Dr Roy Gondo at Quality Care in Yakima, along with his staff Chelsea and Robert, Dr Vicki Jones and RN Geri of North Star Lodge in Yakima, Memorial Hospice and RN Kathy B, and Trinity Church of the Nazarene.
 
Guy’s Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at Trinity Nazarene in Yakima, WA at 11:00am. If desired, flowers or charitable donations can be sent for Trinity Nazarene, and sent in care of Brookside Funeral Home (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936), who is caring for the family.
