One thought on “Obituary for My Dad

  1. I grew up in Temple Baptist Church in Chicago, Il/ Rev. Maurice E. Wagner was then Pastor….and I so remember your Dad, “Gus”…he was terrific with ALL the young people…so upbeat…and a laugh and attitude that wouldn’t quit. I am so sorry to hear of his passing/ had often wondered what happened to him….Maurey Wagner in Calif spoke with me a few years ago and mentioned your Dad was still “alive”…but then I suddenly found out he had passed. What a wonderful man in so many ways…
    Sincerely, Judy Ramsey/ originally Judy Vaccaro…now of Carol Stream, IL.
