During the early morning hours of Oct. 9McGuire was towing a vehicle when a man under the influence slammed into him.

Those who knew him are still coping with the accident they say was 100 percent preventable.

“He was a really good guy. You could be in a bad mood and he would not stop until he saw a smile on your face,” said Joshua Grizzle, who worked with McGuire at Sunpoint Towing. 

“It’s hard, I won’t lie. It's hard.”
