Don Gust lived his life with a passion for his God and for his family. He was a professional truck driver
for over 50 years, having put over three million miles on the road, with only one minor accident. He was
an active volunteer at his church and with the De Colores En Cristo family, serving on 27 weekends and
as a Rector for three of those weekends.
He was an outdoorsman at his core. He loved fishing and hunting and some of his favorite memories
were of going fishing and hunting with his son Will.
He had a beautiful base voice, and although he couldn’t read music, he was an active and loved member
of the church choir and also of The Rock.
He loved being an American and had a deep and abiding love for our country and was a proud Veteran.
His favorite thing was spending time with his wife Jenny and having coffee and chats with many who
called him a friend. One of his favorite sayings was, “Got the coffee on?”
He will be missed but is in Heaven now raising all sorts of ruckus.
A Memorial Service will be held at First Baptist Church of Muskegon at 1070 Quarterline Rd. Muskegon,
Mi on November 25, 2023. Visitation will begin at 10. Funeral service at the church will begin at 11am
with a luncheon to follow.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me was his favorite verse and he tried
to live that throughout his life.
