August “Gus” Abendschein passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on February 8, 2021 at the age of 87. He was born on March 27, 1933 in St Louis, Missouri.

Gus grew up with his 5 brothers and sisters in St Louis. He shared many fond memories about growing up - working hard on the farm and playing sports with his friends and brothers. He graduated from Normandy High School and then worked for 2 years in construction to earn enough money to go to college. He earned a business degree from the University of Texas in 1958. Gus worked as a State Farm agent for 40 years. He truly enjoyed his years at State Farm and loved working and helping people.

Gus met his wife, Jane in St Louis and followed her down to Texas where they were married for 65 years. Gus is survived by his loving wife Jane. He is also survived by his 3 children and spouses: Vicki and Scot Evans, Bob and Sharon Abendschein, and Bill and Jo Lynn Abendschein. Gus and Jane have 7 grandchildren (Jennifer, Melanie, Amy, Michael, Allison, Alex and Austin) and 3 great grandchildren (Emma, Connor and Hudson) which he adored very much. Gus is also survived by sister Ludie Rettig, sister-in-law Anne Abendschein and brother-in-law Earl Luaders.

Gus was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed spending time with his family. He loved to travel and play and watch sports. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. Gus loved socializing with people and was known for his great sense of humor. His favorite thing to do was to travel with his loving wife Jane.

I had the pleasure of knowing the Abendsheins when I taught Billie at Comal Elementary many years ago. All these years later I remember Mr. Abendshein with great respect. In my interactions with him he appeared to be a dedicated father and true gentleman. My sympathies and prayers for the repose of his soul go to the Abendschein family.

I remember stopping in to pester or drag Bill away. Mr Ab would be mowing and he’d stop to visit with us. He and Mrs Abendschein always made me feel welcomed and that I mattered. Such a genuinely kind person. My condolences. I know he is a fantastic husband, father and grandfather. May he Rest In Peace.
