    • After the marriage... The family later attended Madison Street Bible Church (Calvary) where Gus served as a Bible School teacher, receiving treasurer, elder, and faithful prayer warrior.

      Gus worked as an accountant at Marshall Fields, Smith Motor Truck Corp., and Siegel-Kooper.

      For 35 years he was employed by the Old Ben Coal Corporation, beginning as bookkeeper and retiring in 1953 as Treasurer.

      By far the greatest interest and concern in his life was an undying devotion to his Lord and Saviour and a resignation to live a life pleasing to Him.

      It was only natural that the fruits of the Spirit--love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance (Gal. 5:22) expressed the character of his life.
