Guy (Hop) Richard Flowers

December 18, 1952 — April 28, 2023


Guy (Hop) Richard Flowers, Jr., died surrounded by his family on 4/28/2023 in Farmington, New Mexico.  Guy was born to Guy and Wilma (Jutten) Flowers on 12/18/1952 in Montrose Colorado. He attended school in Montrose where he graduated from Montrose High School in 1971. He married Tressa (Cook) on September 28, 1974, and together they had 2 children, a son Beau and a daughter Shannon.   Guy worked at and later managed Montrose Lockers until the business sold in 1982.  Upon the sale of Montrose Lockers, Guy became a truck driver in the Montrose area until 1986. In 1986 Hop and Tressa made the crazy bold decision to move their family to Alaska where he drove a truck for the next 37 years.  After his retirement in 2020 Hop and Tressa sold their home in Alaska, making another crazy, bold decision to jump into their RV, and spent the next 2 years traveling from Alaska to Arizona and all the places in between.   In order to be closer to family Hop and Tressa settled in Farmington, New Mexico where he resided until his death. 

Guy is survived by his wife Tressa, son Beau (Jan), daughter Shannon (Aaron), grandson Tyler (Bel), sister Janelle (Robert), and numerous nieces and nephews.

In Lieu of flowers, the family requested donations to Alaskan Animal Rescue Friends (AARF)
