    I got to know Gus working at CE Rental while I was in high school. As a close friend of Gus’s grandson, Charles, I also got to visit Clearwater on a spring break trip….Gus was such a generous spirit and will be greatly missed. Sending prayers out to the Afendoulis and Phaneuf families…

    His time with us in Raleigh will always be treasured as we will never forget his smile, his love, his warmth, his joy. We marveled as we saw him every Sunday up in the choir and as he came down to receive Communion. May he now be singing with the angelic choirs in a place of light and a place of rest. May his memory be eternal. We send love and prayers to all the family.

    I met Gus 20++ years ago, when Vicki owned CE Rental and he was back in the laundry (he would always say, “Can you believe she has this old man back here, working like a dog!” Talk about love at first sight!!! Whenever I went to the store, I headed back to see Gus first, get a hug and be the recipient of one of his fabulous stories. I never saw him when he wasn’t happy! The last time I was with him was at Charles and Emily’s Wedding and Reception last year. I KNOW he was happier than anyone there! My deepest sympathy and love to Vicki and Charles and Emily and Charles. Men like Gus simply don’t come
    along often, if ever.
