Do you know if Gus is still living? Maybe I need memory pills.
It looks like I may need some of the memory pills too. According to the caption to the photo I referenced earlier, which was not easily read, the photo is of Gus's son Jack and his sister Marie. I corrected the post in which I provided the photo.
For a little bit of background, according to the Buddy's website, at http://www.buddyspizza.com/history.html
, in 1936 Gus was the owner of Buddy's, although I think the official name at the time was Buddy's Rendezvous. The year 1936 was 77 years ago. So, if he was an adult at the time he owned the original Buddy's, and he is still living, then he would be almost as old as you are
As you may recall, Gus left Buddy's in 1953 and purchased the Cloverleaf Bar. That establishment is now called the Cloverleaf Bar & Restaurant and is owned by Gus's children Jack and Marie. I believe the photo shown in the text material at the Cloverleaf Bar & Restaurant website at http://www.cloverleafrestaurant.com/history.htm
is Gus Guerra later in life. I think one of the photos at the right of the text material shows Gus with his wife Anna. To continue the story, Cloverleaf Bar & Restaurant also had two delco pizzerias called Cloverleaf that were run by Shawn Randazzo. Those units were sold to Shawn's mother, Linda Michael, and, after hiring a business coach, they renamed the two units and made them part of what is now called the Detroit Style Pizza Co.
