This is a very sad loss indeed.

His standard of modelling was something to aspire too for many including myself.
I recall his set of articles that appeared in Model railway constructor many years ago that were later published as a book and in my opinion is the definitive text on building a locomotive.

For those who dont know he built the Brunel wodden viaduct that has become the ocon of pendon. he also built many of the locomotives at pendon including the great bear.

He had a gift for explaining things that really comes across in his book and his diagrams were always exactly what was needed and seemingly effortlessly drawn. something again i can only aspire to.

I am sorry i never got a chance to meet Guy but i have always regarded him as one of my modelling heros. i am sure he will now enjoy having unlimited space in which to build a layout. i am sure Beeson, David Jenkinson, Alan Butcher and Ian Beattie will be only too willing to help.
There must be quite a club going up there (i wonder what the membership fees are like?).

To say he will be "sorley missed buy all those who knew him" is a bit of an understatement that dosent really do him justice for he will also be missed buy those who didnt. he has had a profound effect on our hobby and has been principle in raising the standard of modelling.

Rest in peace Mr Williams.
