Eugene Guyton

March 17, 2021



“The Steps of a Good Man are Ordered by God”

Mr. Eugene Guyton died on March 11, 2021.  He was born in Mizpah, NJ, the son of the late Rev. Dr. Horace Guyton, Sr. and Vivian (Holmes) Guyton.  Eugene affectionately called “Toodles,” was the seventh of Horace and Vivian Guyton’s ten children.  His place was special amongst his siblings for many reasons, one being that he was uniquely positioned to be the “little brother” to the older six children, while also being the “big brother” and mentor to the younger set of kids.

As a youth, Gene stood out for his athleticism, artistic ability, and the good-natured way he could make people laugh. He received his education in the Franklin Township public schools, graduating from Delsea Regional High School in 1979. He was industrious and had the instincts of a natural born leader. These qualities would eventually make him an outstanding soldier in the U.S. Army for 7 years where he spent time stationed in Germany and Korea. 

Gene’s love of family eventually brought him back to NJ where he renewed his commitment to the Christian faith. Upon returning from the service, he became a truck driver.  He developed into a skilled bible teacher and faithful servant of the Lord.  Eugene married Vista Crawford in 1996. He has three sons, Kevin (Sharelle), Eugene, and Benjamin and one daughter, Vivian. Gene was a remarkable provider and protector for his wife and four children.  He was also a loyal son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, grandfather and friend to many.  Later, he became an astute photographer and owned his own business Vibe Team Photo taking beautiful pictures at weddings, organizations, school affairs and other events.

Gene fought through his share of adversity in a way that demonstrates “Christ’s strength being made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).”  His boast was in the Lord’s goodness in saving him and giving him an eternal hope! 

Left to cherish his memories is his dearly beloved wife; Vista Guyton, three sons Kevin D Anthony Guyton (Sharelle), Eugene Kenneth Guyton, Benjamin David Guyton and one daughter, Vivian Simone Guyton; Also, he leaves two grandsons, Keo Judah Guyton and Kye Noah Guyton. Five brothers Rev. Dr. Derek Guyton, Rev. Dennis Guyton, Dean Guyton, Horace Guyton, Jr., Rev. Zachary Guyton and three sisters Deborah Guyton Bogan, Rev. Denise Lee, and Rev. Desiree Guyton. He also leaves a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends who will surely miss the joy he brought into their lives. Gene was predeceased by brother Rev. Kenneth Guyton.

A funeral service and burial will be private.

Toodles is missed. Wish I had more time to visit with him. Always smiling and laughing.
Last time I talked to him, he wanted me to move back so we could fellowship.
See you in glory cousin!
