John D. Guisti, age 59, passed away in his Hyde Park, Massachusetts home on Friday, November 27, 2020. Born in Norwood, Massachusetts on January 31, 1961, he was the son of the late Robert and Shirley (Eklund) Guisti. He was raised in Walpole, Massachusetts, where he and his brothers spent countless hours on their dirt bikes and snow mobiles. John attended Walpole High School, spending his summer months working at the Sharon Fence Company, before graduating with the Class of 1979.
Following his graduation, John made his home in Quincy, Massachusetts and started his career in the retail, taking a position at Marshall's. After several years, John returned to his career in carpentry, taking a position with Distinctive Fence on Route 1 in Sharon and most recently working with the crew of KGJ Fence in Walpole. He was truly a hard worker and was always willing to help anyone out.
While more recently John made his home in the city, he never lost his love for suburban living. Quite often he would venture off to find one of his favorite fishing holes, casting his rod in hopes of catching the big one. Most of all, John loved spending time with his family and friends. He looked forward to Sunday get togethers to catch up with his brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. John was sure to be there for all the family celebrations, birthdays, and holidays, surrounding himself with those he loved.
Devoted son of the late Robert and Shirley L. (Eklund) Guisti.
