Known as Gus, he was born in Evansville and apparently named after an uncle.

The 1902 Evansville City Directory lists him as a cabinet maker living at 215 E. Columbia Street, but later he worked for the railroad, though it's unclear in what capacity.

According to the 1920 Census, the family lived in Salem, Ill., but it's unclear why. It also appears they may have lived in Missouri for a time. The Census and a death certificate indicate one daughter, Dorothy (Weber) Schindler, was born in Missouri.

Bud Alvey, one of Gus' sons in law, also remembered him working for Koch's manufacturing ice cream. Alvey said that in the later years, Gus and Cecelia lived apart. "He was a little wayward," Alvey said in 2008. "He liked to hang around the taverns and things like that. He was kind of a wayward type."

Gus died of a heart attack while living and working at Buchy's Place, a tavern. He is buried at Locus Hill Cemetery.
