Need a Land Surveyor?

JB Guyton has passed away
Posted January 02, 2021

It is with a tremendously heavy heart that we share JB Guyton's passing. He was able to be at home with his wife and daughter when he passed on New Year's morning.

JB did not want a funeral or memorial service. He did, however, approve of publishing a memorial in Side Shots. We will be working with his wife to publish a memorial including favorite memories from those who knew JB. He wanted to be remembered for what he gave back to the profession and others, so if you would like to share a special memory please email it to

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
