Dear Susan, I serve as the leader of the Foreign Agricultural Service retiree association. I just wanted you to know that we honored Gus at our last meeting in October by sharing stories and impressions of his excellent leadership and energy in promoting US agricultural exports as Administrator of FAS. As you know, he was very highly regarded and well-liked. Quite a few of us also appreciated that you welcomed us to your lovely home. We are deeply sorry for your loss, and we will help to keep his memory alive. Sincerely yours, Susan Theiler, FAS 1980-2004

One night at Dulles Airport, Gus and his roommate convinced me to leave a boring steady paralegal job and to paint as the artist I believed was my path in life. They even offered to learn to stretch canvasses for my painting. That incident was one of many ways he helped people find what really mattered to them and to follow their passions. What a gift he was capable of offering many persons!

Dear Susan,

I served as director of the Farm Service Agency in New Hampshire under the wise, stimulating, and kind Gus Schumacher. With no disrespect to anyone else intended, he was the brightest, most capable, and most pro-active of our leadership in the USDA. Maybe because he spent a great deal of his life in New England, he gave all of us here a lot of attention and support. He came to my personal aid, and the farmers in my state, on more than one occassion. Many people revered him, and I am among them. I am so sad for your loss and all those whose life he touched. He was a good man.

Susan Dear;
I was one of the many who had the privilege of knowing Gus and working with him in advancing Massachusetts Agriculture from many fronts. He left a lasting legacy and imprint what an urban state such as Massachusetts can achieve under his leadership, innovation and passion. His memory remains with me as long as I live. With lasting memories, Anneli Johnson from Quincy, MA.
