Jason Lloyd Guice of DuPont was found dead at home on Saturday, September 9th after a long term illness. Guice was born in Jesup, GA on March 23, 1962, while his brother and sister watched the Flintstones in the hotel lobby at Wayne County Memorial.
His family moved to Lakeland, GA when he was four years old. Guice graduated as part of the Class of 1980 at Lanier County High School. He attended Valdosta State University in Communication Arts, and Graduated from the then Valdosta Technical School with an Associate Degree in Electrical Industrial.
Guice’s first career was in broadcasting where he used the nom de plume Jay Lloyd on air at Stations FM-96 and WZLS (Z-97) in Valdosta and WBTY-FM in Homerville. He also worked part time at the old Adam’s Music City in Brookwood Plaza where his encyclopedic knowledge of rock music was much appreciated by collectors.
After graduating from technical school, he began an over 25-year career at Lee Quality Container Engineering in Homerville working in electrical maintenance and mechanical repair. Close to the end of his career he moved over to running the parts warehouse before his health failed him.
Guice was a talented musician, singer, writer, audio technician and an avid consumer of science fiction. He is survived by his guitar family of Fender and Ovation guitars as well as a huge collection of books, CD’s, and DVD’s: many of them legal copies. He was a sucker for stray cats and loved shouting Snik at people.
Guice was preceded in death by his parents; Claude and Juanita Guice of Lakeland,GA, and by his Grandparents Jason G Guice, Maw Maw Guice of Sylacauga, Alabama; Herman and Eva Johnson of Homerville GA. He is survived by his sister, Pamela Eve Guice; his brother, Merrill Guice, sister-in-law Frances Smith Guice all of Valdosta; two nephews, Tristan Guice of Valdosta and Robin Guice of Gainesville, GA. He also had numerous cousins stretching from Homerville to Louisiana.
