Celebrating Gus

Surrounded by love and peace, Gus began his next journey on September 12, 2017 when he passed away. His spirit of perseverance, discipline and kindness will be carried on by so many who have been impacted by him.

Funds raised through this site will be dedicated to a community memorial bench to visit Gus at his place of rest at Dry Creek cemetery in Boise Idaho. Funds collected in excess of the cost of the bench will be used for a headstone that reflects his style and love of the outdoors.

This fundraiser was initiated by his siblings Margie, John, Jenny and David, his wife Tiffany, and parents Pete and Janet who reside in Boise, Idaho. Funds will be provided to the monument designer and builder and to cover the cost of the bench location within Dry Creek Cemetery. 

Thank you for visiting this page and for keeping Gus and his legacy in your thoughts.
