Brett Allen Guyton

July 15, 1960 — June 17, 2024


Brett A. Guyton, born July 15th, 1960, passed away peacefully on June 17th, 2024, with his wife Mechelle by his side at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. He fought a nine-year battle with Congestive Heart Failure, which eventually took his life. 

Married in 1987, Brett and Mechelle created over 37 years of cherished memories. They were blessed with their only daughter, Tiffany Davis, and later their grandson Terran Davis, who was always the twinkle in Brett’s eye. To his family he has been a steadfast pillar of strength. He did not share his feelings often through words but proved every day through his actions his love for his family, and his dedication to those he held dear. 

Brett was a 1978 graduate of Lexington High School. Shortly after graduation he pursued a position with Brunson Instrument Company, where he went on to take pride in a lifelong career of 45 years. He filled many positions with BIC and went on to be a key employee and the go-to person for his colleagues. His wealth of knowledge would eventually land him his career within the Optical Tooling cell at BIC where he assembled various precision measurement products. Brett’s dedication to his work was unmatched, giving him a sense of purpose. He found, not only a job at BIC, but a whole lifetime of friends that were his BIC family. Each of his colleagues touched his life and made him most of who he was. Many will remember him as a mentor and someone with a keen eye for precision, who was always ready to help others find answers. 

He is survived by his wife, Mechelle Guyton; daughter, Tiffany Davis; and grandson, Terran Davis. 

Brother, Larry Guyton; and sister, Johnna Bales. 

He is preceded in death by his father, John R. Guyton; mother, Betty Lou Green; and brothers, Richard Guyton and Dale Guyton. 

An Informal Gathering in Memory of, and to Celebrate, Brett’s Life will be held on June 29th, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Carson-Speaks Chapel in Independence, Missouri (1501 W Lexington Ave). 

“His words were hardly heard, but his presence was always felt. He will be dearly missed.”
