He was highly regarded in the Real Estate appraising field - - serving as President of the local chapter of the AIREA.

In his later years Gus enjoyed painting, playing chess with his grandson, and playing his cello. During his life, his one big enjoyment was giving of his time and talent to others in need.

Memorials in Gus' name may be made to The Salvation Army, 11315 W. Watertown Plank Road, P.O. Box 26019, Wauwatosa, WI 53226 Please, no flowers. Rather than sending flowers, Gus would ask that you pay a visit to someone or do a good deed. Gus was the last of the true gentlemen.
