Gus took me in and always treated me like a son. He was a big man with an even bigger heart and we did many side jobs together where he shared the story of how he came to America when he was just a teenager and always worked hard to make ends meet and get ahead. When he saved up enough to buy a nice Milwaukee drill and started installing antennas for people on tall buildings in New Jersey - he was a very proud and hardworking man. He would do anything in his power for his children and his family...from driving all the way from Tampa to Chicago non-stop when his daughter was sick to making the bill for my Appendix removal go away - He said he talked to the nuns and St. Joseph's but I always suspected he just made arrangements and paid the bill - Gus will be truly missed but left a legacy of caring and Love behind that will endure forever!
I will always love you and miss you like a father - Davuko
