Jon Craig Guyett

Jon Craig Guyett of Kilauea, Kauai, Hawaii passed away on Oct.r 28, 2016, at the age of 61, in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii. He was born on Nov. 8, 1954, in Bethesda, Maryland. Jon taught middle and high school math at Kula High and Intermediate for five years and tutored countless students, preparing many on Kauai for college prep exams.

Jon loved coaching basketball and soccer, and refereeing in the KPAL basketball and county Adult and Youth basketball leagues. He was a golfer with a long drive and smooth swing. Jon was a selfless man that gave so much to our ohana, friends, and community and always with a smile on his face. He did not take for granted the moments that he had with all that he shared whether in the ocean, on the beach, in the classroom, gym, or golf driving range! He appreciated every day!
