Gus C. Chakos October 27, 1936 to March 29, 2013
Gus passed away peacefully at Community Hospital in San Bernardino on Good Friday, after a short illness. He has lived in San Bernardino all of his life and was a graduate of San Bernardino High. Gus was very generous with his time and the job he took most pride in was that of a Senior Companion volunteer; something he did for the last ten years. He assisted housebound seniors by taking them to the doctor, grocery shopping or simply playing checkers or chess and spending time with them. Some of Gus' interests included studying history of all cultures and especially of the Catholic faith. He enjoyed his membership at St. Bernadine's Parish his entire life. Gus was preceded in death by his parents, Chris and Julia Chakos, and his brothers, Chris and George Chakos. He is survived by his brothers, Bill (wife Toni) and Nick Chakos and numerous nieces and nephews.
