In lieu of flowers we would appreciate donations made to the American Numismatic Association. My Gussy loved coins and the numismatic association, and every summer as a teen, he went to Colorado, to the American Numismatic Association headquarters where he learned a great deal about coins and currency. They were treasured and fond memories he passed on with great joy to other small kids. Because he loved this so much, I am setting up a fund in his name for anyone wishing to donate any funds to this scholarship. I know my husband would have loved this.
You may make the donation in the name of Gus Demetriades II and have an acknowledgment sent to Andi at our work address.
Any such gift may also be published as anonymous at the donor's request.
The Association shall issue receipts therefor to the donor or his or her estate at the time such gift or bequest is received.
Thank you!
Carothers Funeral Home, Gastonia is serving the Demetriades family.
