Gus Toloudis

March 15, 1928 - April 27, 2022

Gus Toloudis, 94 years young, received his angel wings on April 27, 2022. He was born to Thelma Holtz Toloudis and Chris Toloudis in Labelle, Texas, on March 15, 1928. He lived his entire life on their family homestead.  

 Gus graduated from Fannett High School in 1946. After graduating, he left the very next day for the United States Navy. Upon returning home from the Navy, he wed the love of his life Rena Mae Miller and he went to work for Sun Oil Company until he retired at the age of 57. He could often be seen around town with his wife in his navy hat. He enjoyed visiting with folks from all over that stopped him to thank him for his service to our country. Gus served on the Fannett school board during the sixties.

He was an active member of St Marys Catholic Church and served as a 4th degree Knight in the Knights Of Columbus, council 6763  for many years. To his family, he was the “ self-proclaimed,”Mayor of Labelle. His most happy times were well spent as an outdoorsman, deer hunting. Duck hunting and fishing for anything that happened to jump on his line.

More than anything else it must be said, Gus loved people and those people adored him!!! That without doubt, was a gift from God.

Very special thanks to our good friend Charity Webster for her exceptional and untiring care and Support of Gus throughout his illness.

    I’ve known Mr Gus for almost 60 years. He always made me feel comfortable and had many questions of my business and well being. He started every greeting polite and soft spoken. Upon every visit I felt that he genuinely cared about our conversations. There are not enough folks like Mr Gus around these days. He will be greatly missed. God bless his soul and may he Rest In Peace.
