Guy (Buzz) Grove of Twin City Hide Co, died at home in his sleep. Buzz was a pioneer in many aspects of hide processing and marketing. His industry leadership led to his being honoured by the USHSLA in 2004 by his election to their Hall of Fame. He built Twin City Hide from a small business salt packing hides that was started by his father to become one of the largest hide processors in the US. He was innovative in establishing a wet-blue tannery next to his hide plant as well.   

Until his semi retirement, Buzz was a fixture at every domestic and international trade event and was the life of the party every place he went. He was admired and respected by all who came in contact with him. He was generous with his time and friendship. This did not detract from his business acumen as well as raising a large family and training his sons to follow in his footsteps.
