  1. Doug Lovitt says:

    Granger, “Gus” was a lifelong friend to my Father, and later to my Mother too. I’ll always remember everytime I see “Wizard of Oz” what my Father said about him and Gus seeing it the first time when they were 9 and when it switched to color- the whole audience gasped. Also when He, Steve, Scott and my family went to Mackinac Island on his cabin cruiser. I remember staying with him and June and the girls in Fort Lauderdale for Christmas with my parents, or when he took me to see “Jaws” in Jackson. Such great memories of Gus. So glad I was fortunate to call him a friend. God bless you Steve, Jodi, Scott and family.
