Obituary for "Mick" Wayne Edward McGuire


REDWOOD CITY, CA - McGuire, age 89, beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at Webster House Nursing & Rehab in Palo Alto, CA, due to natural causes.

Mick was an International Businessman and a true salesman. He owned McGuire Dairy Equipment, and Sierra Industries both headquartered in Lansing, MI. He had manufacturing plants for Sierra in Australia, Costa Rico, Sweden and Belgium. He also worked for Vesley Co. in Lapeer, MI, and for Long Development in Lansing. He was born in Pledger, TX, February 27, 1928, the son of Clifford and Jessie McGuire (nee Shelton)

A proud Veteran of the U.S. Navy Seabees, he served in World War II. He was very grateful to the U.S. Military his entire life. He bought his first home with a VA Loan, went to school on the G.I. Bill to learn a trade, and later in life appreciated many benefits for excellent health care through the VA Palo Alto.

He and Elsia Bandkau were married on October 30, 1949 at Salem Lutheran Church in Owosso, Michigan. They had been married 64 years when she passed.
A resident of Lansing most of his life, he later moved to Lakeland, Florida in 1990, to Port Orange in 2002, and to Redwood City, California in 2013

He loved spending time with family and friends, reading, playing poker and baking bread, and he demonstrated loving care to all. He was a bit of a rascal and lived an exciting life. He referred to himself as an Irish Texan and was quick with a joke and some good advice - always with a twinkle in his eye!

He is preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife, Elsia, and several brothers, sisters and relatives.
Survivors include his daughter and son-in-law, Beth Ann and Jeffrey Filippi of Redwood City, CA; his son and daughter-in-law, Scott A. and Colette B. McGuire of Port Orange, FL; six grandchildren, Shannon Fischer of San Mateo, CA, Kelly and Anthony Bernal of San Carlos, CA, Megan McGuire of Orlando, FL, Caitlin McGuire of Tampa, FL Cameron McGuire of Port Orange, FL and Ian McGuire of Port Orange, FL; and one great-grandson, "Caden the Great” Bernal of San Carlos, CA; also two nieces, Gretchen Taute (Irwin) of Albuquerque, NM and Louann Pelton (Irwin) of Eagle, MI and one nephew, Glenn Irwin of Zephryhills, FL.

Memorials are suggested to the IFOPA, P.O. Box 196217, Winter Springs, Florida 32719-6217 ( ).
