Gus loved his woodworking and shared his beautiful creations, especially his butterflies with those he cared about and loved. He was also known to be an avid Golfer which led him to finding a new love of his life, Blanche, whom he met at the Tilbury Golf Club in 1989. Gus fought a long and courageous battle with cancer for 3 years and 5 months, loving his pumpkin patch and painting for his wife and family until the last. A special thank you to the kind and compassionate staff at the Erie Shores Hospice for everything that they did.
