Ken was a straight shooter. I knew Ken through Volleyball officiating and our many conversations about Golf. He was always passionate about getting it right. May Almighty God's perpetual light shine upon Ken forever and and ever Amen!

I had the privilege of knowing and working with Ken Gust for over 30 years. He was a man of great intelligence, keen wit and absolute integrity. As a math teacher, Ken worked very well with students, especially the gifted ones. One lesson which became an annual tradition, was Ken's teaching the concept of a million. For days, Ken had his students fill up sheets of graph paper with dots and then he pasted them all up covering practically every inch of wall space in the classroom.. When done, every student in all his classes understood the concept of a million through the evidence of their own eyes. I used to kid Ken by telling him that that was the only time of year he ever decorated his bulletin board. Besides being an excellent teacher, Ken was a dedicated and able advocate for teacher rights. His work as president of the Arbor Park Education Association and as a negotiator raised the economic benefits and protections for teachers to new highs in School District 145. Ken's was a shrewd and gifted negotiator who, year after year, delivered better contracts for the District.Ken Gust was truly "of the old school." He had a finely honed sense of right and wrong. And if Ken disagreed with you, he was not shy about letting you know it. When Ken took a position you knew it was based on sound judgment and cold logic. Along those lines, it was clear to even the simplest school administrator that Ken had standards which he would not tolerate being violated. Throughout his career, Ken fought passionately for his standards, no matter what the cost.Most remarkable about Ken was his loquaciousness on practically all subjects. Whether it the state of the GOP or handicapping the Stanley Cup favorites, Ken always was willing and able to share an insightful opinion. Ken was a good man. I will miss him.
