Canadice: On 12/15/2017 after a hard, valiant 30 year fight with heart disease and congestive heart failure. Predeceased by sisters Rosemary Ellis, Wilma Miller and brother Samuel D’Aprile. Survived by wife of 53 years, Beverly (Kuslik) D’Aprile, sons David (Katie), Tom and daughters Karen (Paul) Roche, Linda (Dave) Polizzi and Theresa (Brian) Denney; grandchildren, Lieutenant Danny Roche U.S. Army National Guard, Brooke and Jake D’Aprile, Joseph and Thomas Polizzi, Grace and Sophia Denney, several nieces and nephews. Gus will be missed greatly by many friends in the Western Finger Lakes area, especially the gang at “The Barn” in Piffard, N.Y.
Gus was a retired Investigator with the Rochester Police Department and former Conesus Town Judge.
He had many interests and many friends but his true loves and what he was most proud of, were his family, his service in the United States Army (serving stateside, as well as Germany and Southeast Asia) and cars. Boy, did Gus love cars!
Gus was the driving force of our family. We learned more about responsibility and service to family and society from him that can ever be quantified. He was our loyal leader, and we will miss him terribly.
