    To the family so sorry for your loss what little time I got to know Gus I know he will be missed dearly he was such a loving & caring person.
  2. Paul Medley says:
    Know Gus because he married my cousin, Maggie Smith. I might add Maggie was one of some favorite cousins despite being a few years older than me, Gus was also one of my favorite Cousin In Laws . He was was a nice and fun guy to be around.

    I seldom made a trip back to MO that I did not stop by and visit with Gus and Maggie. We also live in TN now (since 1997) and have called Gus a few times since he moved to be closer to Trent, son, and his family.
    It is a sad time, that said Gus had a good life although he was affected by loss of Maggie (they were so close).
