Gus, may you rest in the arms of the good Lord. I know you are with God. You always were willing to help with your beautiful wife in any area when I was a teacher at Ascension Catholic. May God bless Genie and your family at this time. Prayers for all.

I met Gus over 60 years ago when he worked with my Dad at the John Deere dealership. Spent some time with Him and his "Young Bride" when their son Duane was on my Little League baseball team. I've always respected Gus Landry. He was a good man.
