George Guyton Carkener ’30

Published in Oct. 10, 1990, issue

GUYTON DIED unexpectedly at a Tampa, Fla. hospital on Mar. 10, 1990, after what had been classified as a minor surgical procedure. Kansas City was his hometown, but he and Laura spent many winters in their Saratoga, Fla. home, and in later, semiretirement years they had a third domicile, a Hatteras Cruiser, which took them up and down the Intracoastal Waterway to New England, the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, and Mississippi River. Guyton was very proud of his three daughters and six grandchildren. He was a successful man in his career as well as his family.

With his Princeton B.S. degree in economics~ Guyton spent a brief two years in accounting, then turned to investmentseventually owning Drury Investment Corp. and G. Guyton Carkener Investment Co., where he was largely involved in portfolio management. As an R.O.T.C. "shave tail" he was called to active duty early and was discharged in 1946 as a major. A brother, Stuart Carkener 11 '19, and a cousin, Charles B. Buffum Jr. '26, are deceased. He married Laura Kemper Toll in 1937. she survives, as do his daughters and grandchildren. To these we extend our sympathy in the sudden loss of husband and father.
