George Warner “Salty” McGuire Jr.

(Continued)

NORMAN —

He and Jody loved to travel and crisscross this great country of ours in their Airstream trailer. They did this in their early years of marriage with their family and later with their Airstream friends or by themselves. He served as a state and regional officer in their Airstream club, Wally Byam Caravan Club International. Through the 40-plus years in this club, they made many life-long friends. They both loved sports and attended many University of Oklahoma events as well as events across the U.S. and Canada.

Though Salty led a busy and active life, always on the go, his greatest love was for his immediate family. He would always make time, change plans and sacrifice what was necessary to help his family. He had a special bond with all of his grandchildren. His later years were filled with fun times when all his grandchildren gathered at his pool for swimming and pizza.  They loved spending time with their “Pa Pa” and “G-Pa.”

He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years and his parents.

He is survived by his sons, Randy and his wife Sallie and Kyle K. and his wife Margie and granddaughter, Meagan, all of Norman; his grandson, Scottie Bryan and his wife April, great-grandchildren Madeline and Jackson, all of Edmond; and several nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
