  1. Gus will be missed,
    Very sweet soft spoken
    down to earth man.
    Hardworking never quit always willing to help someone in need.
    Rest now
    I shall always remember you.

  2. Though I didnt know Gus, I am fortunate to know and work with his son Nick.
    Nick is kind and smart and even when he doesn’t have time, he always “finds the time” to help out a fellow coworker.
    I have no doubt that this is a reflection of how he was raised and that Gus was very proud of Nick.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Beres and their extended family and friends during this time.

  3. I wanted to send my condolences to Dorothy and her family. I have worked with Dorothy for years now and she is very loved by many at the workplace. Sending you much love, comfort and prayers at this time of grieving Dorothy to you and your family.

  4. I have worked with Dorothy for about 15 years and have met Gus on several occasions. He was always very friendly and happy. I enjoyed visiting with him and he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the Beres family.

  5. My condolences to Gus’s family & our beloved Dorothy , I loved hearing Dorothy’s stories about Gus.
    I have had the pleasure of working with Dorothy for 14years.

    Sincerly

  6. I like others cheer did not know Gus, but knew and worked with his son Nick. And if a man is assessed by the quality of his offspring, Gus did amazingly well in his son Nick. My condolences!

  7. My deepest condolences to Dorothy and the family. I have known Dorothy for 14 years. The stories she has told us about Gus has always brought smiles to our faces. The times I have met Gus he was always joyful. He will be missed dearly. Hugs to you all Debbie

  8. Please accept my deepest condolences, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your family is in my heart as well as my prayers during this difficult time. I pray for your much needed strength, as well as your peace & comfort in the days to come. I worked everyday with Dorothy at Stericycle- she always talked about Gus, Teddy & Nicky. I feel like I almost knew him in some way, I have heard so many stories. i know i would have loved to have met him at least once. He sounded like a real handful- just like his Wife! Sending my love to the family.

  9. Guys will be missed by all who knew him and his family. He sure made my stay at Hillcrest go by a little faster. I ate all my meals there with Gus. Loved all our conversations. God bless you Gus and comfort your loved ones.
