Jon Guthrie: 1983-2009

Jon Guthrie

Athens, Ga., musician Jon Guthrie died this weekend in a single-car crash when his vehicle veered off the road and into a creek off Beaverdam Road in Athens. Family, friends and local police had been reaching out online through Twitter and Facebook hoping to locate Guthrie after he went missing, but he was found in his car Monday evening. 

In a Facebook post early this morning, Mallonee wrote, “Jon was one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever known. His talent on guitar, bass and vocals was immense, his heart as big as the heavens, and his willingness to always find the best in people undiminished. Jon, we miss you dearly.”
