    Prayers to the family. Sorry we will not make it to the funeral, as we are in AZ for the winter. Gus was a really good man, always willing to help anyone.

    We are so sorry to hear about Gus. He was a great person. I always remember him riding his bike around the neighborhood. At times he tried to come across kind of gruff but he had a heart of gold. We also enjoyed his military stores. He will be missed. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers
