For those that are interested and knew Gus, owner of Gabbys on Kingston Rd., the Information for the visitation and service is located: CLICK HERE

I am deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Gus. We just spoke a couple weeks ago. I knew he wasn't doing the best, but he was still talking about fishing and boating.

I am at a loss for words, and I cannot really say much except for how I
appreciated Gus for his generosity, sense of humor and high spirits. He
has always been a good friend, always ready to accommodate us riders at
the last minute, and never failed to give a word of encouragement. I
will surely miss him. We will surely miss him.

I met Gus in the early 2000's when I was working at Cycle Solutions. We used to go to Gabby's for the after Bike Show parties. The first year I made the Club official, I asked Gus whether he would want to sponsor the club, he replied: "Dan, anything for you, How much?" We used Gabby's as our watering hole for 2007/08/09. It wasn't until last year he mentioned that they planned on selling Gabby's and he wanted us to support his brother Larry @ Salty Dog. Gus you will be missed. Anyways a couple old Beer Night pics are included below from years past.

What sad news. I didn't know Gus really, but he always had a big huge smile on his face and was such an enthusiastic nice fellow! What a tragic story. Thanks for letting us know, Dan.

I was very sad to hear this news. Although I didn't get to know Gus personally, as the others have said, he was always a friendly and happy person and was quick with a smile for you. My heart goes out to his family. Thanks for letting us know Dan. He will be missed.

It was a sad news to hear that Gus had passed away. I didn't knew Gus personally, he was always friendly and enthusiastic, everytime we are at Gabby's. Thanks Dan for letting us know.
