Sorry to hear the passing of Uncle Florian. He always was a great support when it comes to family.
We always received his Christmas greetings first.
Thank you for being part of my family.

Marcie and I were sadden to hear of the passing of Gus. We have many fond memories of Gus trying to "hurry up" Evodia!! He had a lot of compassion, and loved his church family... Terry Griggs

I am a fellow volunteer driver for Anoka County and met Gus once. Thank you for all your driving and volunteering. God bless those who mourn.

Anoka County lost a great citizen when Gus passed. Beginning in 1998, Gus enlisted as a Volunteer Driver for Anoka County. Every year he provided hundreds of Anoka County seniors and veterans rides to medical appointments throughout the region. Gus logged thousands of miles and hours as a volunteer. His committment to the community was invaluable. Gus had a big heart and touched the lives of many. He is missed.

We are so sorry to hear about Gus's passing. When our son, Jeffrey, died in 2000 Gus was one of the first people that came to our house. He brought us a Bible and a pamphlet talking about grief and how God is with us in our sorrow. He was so involved in things. So many times when we were out and about we would see him. For example when our son was in the Halloween parade one year, there was Gus driving a truck in the parade! He will be missed very much. Our prayer for you is that your memories will give your heart gladness and the knowledge that he is in heaven, reunited with your Mom and that together they are with our Heavenly Father will give you hope.

Gus was a wonderful friend of the family! He was my parents supervisor with the Shopper way back when my older brothers delivered the paper. We are very sorry to see him go!! Sue and Brian Casey
