treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Gus was a man of strong faith and character, always willing and eager to help anyone in need or
offer guidance and support. He enjoyed the simple things in life; faith, family, friends and good
food. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends and was able to do so
during his last few years at his home on Long Beach Island, NJ where many special memories
were made.
His family thanks God to have had such a wonderful patriarch for so many years. Their love and
devotion for him will never fade and they will carry him in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
