James (Jim, Jimmy) V. Guido, 62 passed away peacefully, surrounded by love and family, in Phoenix, Arizona on October 22, 2021. Jim was a beloved husband, father, papa, brother, uncle and friend to all.

Jim was born to Theresa and James Guido on March 5, 1959, in Melrose Park, Illinois. Jim is the fourth of five children. He graduated from Hinsdale High School in Hinsdale, Illinois in 1977. He went on to Lakeland College in Wisconsin and graduated in 1981.

Jim moved to Arizona in 1981. On April 17, 1996, while hiking Squaw Peak, Jim met the love of his life. A simple hike turned into two children and 23 years of marriage. Jim and Janice Jones married in July of 1998. They made wonderful memories together. Day trips, vacations, good food, Sunday dinners and ultimately a dream vacation to Kauai.

Jim was a devout Catholic and a die-hard Cubs fan. He enjoyed an occasional cigar and an old-fashioned. He was an Italian man through and through and even got to take a trip to Italy. Jim was currently working for Charles Schwab for the last 14 years.
