Alfred G. Gaus, Jr., a loyal ERA member since June 1968 (#3787), died on July 3 in Philadelphia. He was 75.
Al was born April 1, 1947 in Vienna. As an infant, Al’s family moved to the Brewerytown neighborhood of North Philadelphia where he spent his early years. He later became a long-term resident of the Fox Chase neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia and worked for the claims/legal department of SEPTA until his retirement. Al participated in many of the ERA’s European trips and was really happy when the ERA ran a trip to Austria. Al was also an active member of the East Penn Traction Club.
A memorial gathering for Al will be held on Saturday, October 1, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts / CCA at Elkins Central. Coffee and donuts will be served.
