Published in Mar. 20, 1991, issue

GUS SCHMITT, who had moved to Flagler Beach, Fla., some years ago, died there Oct. 19, 1990.

Gus was born Nov. 25, 1911, in Passaic, NJ. He later moved to Ridgewood. He prepared at Stevens School, Hoboken. In college he was in the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club, and was a member of Arbor Inn.

Gus left college in 1932 and studied at the N.Y.U. School of Commerce. He entered the purchasing field in 1935, and soon after became associated with Ebasco, Services, in field supervision and construction, and later as a buyer. He eventually became purchasing agent. For many years he was located in N.Y., and lived in Glen Rock, N.J. He was active in community affairs and in singing groups. In 1975, Ebasco moved its purchasing operation to Atlanta, and after retirement, Gus moved to Flagler Beach.

On Mar. 25,1938, Gus married Anne Lawson, in West Orange, NJ. They had three children, William, Margot Anne Foxfire, and Christine Elizabeth Lobo.

In 1973, after the death of Anne, Gus married Mrs. Lillian Rockefeller. After her death, he married Margaret Jones, who survives him, as does his brother Hans George Schmitt.

We deeply regret Gus's passing, and extend our sympathy to Peggy and the rest of the family.
