Most residents of Carroll County couldn’t get away without knowing Guy Padgett.
In fact, the former county treasurer was known as an avid people person, who never met a stranger.
“Whenever he would see a stranger, he would walk right up to them and ask, ‘Do you know who I am?’ And if they didn’t know, he would tell them,” said Darrell Jennings, former Commissioner of Revenue for the county. “He was a true politician, and he loved people. Guy was one of a kind, that’s for sure.”
