Could Pine Lake's Guido have been Guido Dal Bon, by any chance? That was the owner of Ring's Market at 33rd and Taraval, and Ring's always gave out the free baloney slice as well. He went by the name Dal, as I recall, and he might have owned both markets...

The butcher was a guy named Red who used to have a Christmas party for customers every year--right there in the cold room where they stored the meat!

I grew up on 31st and Quintara in the late '50's- early '60's, and the Dal Bons lived at 31st and Ortega.
