Guy Rochon Owen (August 22, 1913 – April 21, 1952) was a Canadian figure skating champion.
Owen initially competed in the men's individual figure skating event, winning the 1929 Canadian junior men's singles championship. He went on to specialize in the "Fours Event" with great success. For five straight years between 1933 and 1937, Owen and his skating partners Margaret Davis, Prudence Holbrook, and Melville Rogers won the Fours Event at the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships plus they also captured the bi-annual North American Figure Skating Championship three successive times in 1933, 1935, and 1937.
In 1938 Guy Owen married Maribel Vinson, the nine-time United States ladies figure skating champion and settled in Berkeley, California. They had two daughters, Maribel Owen (born 1940) and Laurence Owen (born 1944).
Guy and Maribel Owen turned professional, earning a living as performers with ice skating shows such as the International Ice Skate Revue before setting up their own show.
Guy Owen was only 38 years old when he died unexpectedly in 1952.
