Guy Christian Hadler
Jun 12, 1948 - Jul 6, 2016
Guy Christian Hadler was born in Sacramento, June 12, 1948 to his loving parents, Peggy and Earl Hadler. He left for his Heavenly Father on July 6, 2016.
Guy was bigger than life. He was a consummate and devoted husband to his wife of 35 year, Susann Geiskopf Hadler, and brother to Paul (Debby) Hadler and Cecelia (Jack) Kibele.
Guy has sixteen nieces and nephews, including Natalie, Lindsey, Phillip, E.P., Matthew, Brandon, Brian, Zack, Renee, Nichole, Judy, Daniel, Joseph, Jackie, Jeff, Courtney and Kelly.
Guy was part of a large and extended family, and was very committed to his many cousins including Deanna and Kevin Ryan, Nancy and Karl Kuhles, Charlie Grows, Walt and Amy Grows.
Also, Guy has countless “Godchildren” and young friend, some of whom he coached at East Sacramento Soccer League for 10 + years. Guy was also a mentor, leader and teacher to so many people. They are now wiser and kinder people as a result of Guy’s guidance, wisdom, wit, and direction.
The love of Guy’s life, and the person he revered the most, is his lover, companion, business partner and co-chef; his wonderful wife, Susann. Guy smiled whenever she came into his presence and always greeted her with a heart-felt kiss. He talked (and talked!) about their love for each other, growing up together, working together, cooking together, traveling together, gardening together……. being together. Being near Susann made Guy happy and made him whole. Although they were together for 45 years, Guy always loved to joke that Susann only counted the 35 years with “ring on finger”.
Along with being a devoted family man and friend to many, Guy was a graduate of Sacramento State University, was a successful businessman and was the founding President of the Midtown Business Association, in 1982. His innovative marketing techniques, endless ideas, and incredible energy changed insurance marketing for its time. Guy could see ideas when others saw objects. He envisioned ways of creating progressing concepts from business to cooking. In Guy’s mind, “what if we did this” or “what if we did that” seemed to always spin through his mind. Guy’s tenaciousness, intellect and personality allowed him to become an extremely successful businessman and family provider.
