Gus (Gordon) was born and raised on the Thunderchild First Nation. He was one of 15 children. Gus was a great father, mosoom and chapan to his children and grandchildren. He worked in Turtleford as a mechanic in his younger days. He then went to work for Thunderchild First Nation for the next 35 years, until he retired as a Heavy Equipment Operator. He was a hardworking man all of his life. He taught his son his skills to work along with him. After losing his many friends in the past year, his health deteriorated. He missed his friends that went before him and he never recovered from his loneliness
