Joseph Olivadoti In the summer of 1941, Guy attended a music clinic and gained much admiration from the instructor, Joseph Olivadoti.

Coincidentally, Guy was well acquainted and friends with Olivadoti's son, Ray, who also played saxophone with many bands and orchestras.

That same summer, Ray introduced Guy to his sister Kae. Guy and Kae Olivadoti became very good friends and continued to keep in touch though, during this time, the Olivadoti family resided in Chicago .
