Costa, Constantine (Gus)
passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2016 in San Tan Valley. Born in 1921, he was the son of Greek immigrants. He joined the Coast Guard during WW II and married his high school sweetheart, with whom he raised four children. Upon her death, he married his wife, Ruth, and they were married for 41 years. Gus was a barber in Newton, New Jersey for 51 years, but his first love was the violin. He played for many years in orchestras, the last being the Chandler Symphony, in his 90th year. He was also in demand by local schools, where he played for musicals for 35 years. Gus leaves his loving wife, Ruth, his children, Diane, Donna, Bob, and Marie, as well as his four stepsons, Paul, Hannes, Stefan and Thomas Ruderstaller. Gus was a most loving father, husband and grandpa, and will be cherished forever by those who loved him.
