Albert (Ira) W Guthrie

May 20, 1934 — October 24, 2019

Albert W. (Ira) Guthrie passed from this life into the presence of the Savior on October 24, 2019.  He was 95 years old.

Services are planned for the chapel at First Baptist Church, Amarillo on Tuesday, October 29 at 2:00 pm.

He was born on May 30, 1924 on a farm near Grapevine, Texas to Chester and Jewel Guthrie.  He graduated from Stratford High School in 1941 and, after graduation, served in the Army Air Corps for three years, including sixteen months in the South Pacific as a pilot in the Air Transport Command.

He graduated from Texas Tech University in 1949 with a degree in civil engineering.  Most of his working career was as an engineer for Pioneer Natural Gas Company in Amarillo,TX.
He married Elnora Boyles in Lubbock, Texas on August 28, 1949.  Before her death, they had sixty five years together, loving each other and their family.

He is survived by his son, Jim (Diane) of Houston, son Don (Holly) of Rowlett, and daughter Diane (Brad) of Amarillo.  Also by six grandchildren and  spouses and thirteen great-grandchildren, with another one due in December.

Ira was a steady and strong support for his family, both immediate and extended.  An avid golfer, a faithful believer, he and Elnora were happy to travel much of the world, together.  He was a generous and good man and will be missed by friends and family.

The family appreciates your prayers and suggests, for those who would like to do so, memorial gifts to the Television Ministry of First Baptist Church.
