Guy Thatcher served in the Canadian regular armed forces from 1955 to 1980 as a tank officer, helicopter pilot, anti-tank missile instructor, and computer analyst, serving in Germany, Belgium, Cyprus, Texas, and Alabama, as well as at various bases in Canada. He then pursued a second career for a further twenty-six years as a management consultant, working primarily in the field of facility planning and management.
He holds a degree in Computing and Information Systems from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, is a Fellow of the International Facility Management Association and is a lifetime Certified Management Consultant. He developed and taught postgraduate courses in Information Management for Facility Professionals at Michigan State University, delivered worldwide over the Internet. He has written or contributed to several business books and workshop manuals. He continues to teach in the Caribbean, successfully combining work and pleasure.
He also continues (since 1958) to be married to Carroll Thatcher, with whom he has four grown children and two new grandchildren, clearly the most beautiful children in the world. Since 1991 he has been a home support volunteer for the Hospice at May Court. He skis, travels as much as he can, gardens, scuba dives (occasionally), reads voraciously--mostly history and science--, square dances, teaches, and plays a truly dreadful game of golf.
All of this, however, has nothing to do with the walk he took across Spain . . . or perhaps it has everything to do with the walk he took across Spain. He has lived in Ottawa, Canada since 1973.
