children and the rest of the family.
Gus was a mentor and sounding board
to me. He was very supportive of new ideas and always available with good
counsel. Above all, Gus was a gentle
man. May he rest in eternal peace.

Michiko and family;
I worked with Gus in the Sales Admin when I first graduated from Cal in 1967. We worked for one of the best, Gene Vaughn, and your husband treated me with the utmost warmth and respect. A true gentleman and a good friend. I always made it a point to visit him whenever I was in the Home Office.
My condolences to you and your family.

A good guy !

Gus was one of the first people I met when I started work at Levi's. We worked on several projects together early in my career planning sales territories. He was extremely helpful and an all around good guy. May he rest in peace and may time heal the family's of loss.

So sorry to hear about your father Steve, from the time I met him he always treated me like I was family. I was glad that I met him!
