His longstanding contributions in teaching, performing statistical data accumulation and analysis for sports, and playing tenor sax in the Mesa City Band were indicative of his dedication to things he loved, and exemplify the oft-noted intertwining of music and mathematics in people's souls.
Our condolences to those who were close to him.
- Scott Clayton I spoke with Gus a few years ago at a Corona del Sol basketball game. He was still doing the stats. When he retired from teaching he kept doing the stats....after Tempe High, he moved to Corona probably because of his good friend Sammy Duane who was coaching at the school. Now Sammy's son Sammy Jr. is the coach and CdS recently won its 4th consecutive state basketball championship.
