Bernard (Ben) Guida of Winter Park, FL passed peacefully surrounded by his siblings, friend and caregiver, Stevan Rojas, at his home on January 13, 2021.
Ben was born in Detroit, MI in 1957 to Ermelinda and the late Elvio Guida. He graduated from Ferris State University with a Bachelor degree in Public Administration. During his career he was city manager in several municipalities in Michigan and procurement director for transport sectors in FL and GA.
Ben is survived by his mother, Ermelinda Guida, sister, Philomena (Paul) Woods, brother, Joe (Sue) Guida, sister, Diana Guida (Duane Nimtz). He was cherished by all his nephews and nieces and they sought his council on many life issues. He also leaves behind great nephews and nieces as well as cousins, aunts, and uncles both in the U.S. and Italy. His beloved dog Juanito will certainly miss him too.
Ben was a very loving, caring man who loved to travel and made friends easily. He will be greatly missed by so many.
A celebration of Ben’s life will be held at a later date when we can all gather safely together.
He will be interred at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township, MI.
