He made many friends across the country and was always happy to share his fishing knowledge even with strangers in Bass Pro Shop.

    So sad to hear about Gus. I ran track with him at McClellan and played baseball with him at Geyer Spring Ballpark, playing for Pricket Dairy. He was a heck of an athlete and a lot of fun to be around. Mrs. Fisher never missed a game…I can still see and hear her cheering us on.

    Sheri Ann and family, we are so sad to hear about Gus. It has been many years since we saw you. We were friends and neighbors when we lived in Arkadelphia.
    Prayers for you and family during this time.
