Edward Gaus

July 23, 2010

Edward Thomas Gaus passed away Friday, July 23, 2010, in Oakhurst, NJ, at the age of 41. Ed experienced and loved life to the fullest. With his intellect, strong sense of humor, and happy nature, Ed was entertaining to be around. He always took things in stride and was generous with his time, going out of his way to help others; as an Eagle Scout or through volunteer work, he contributed to the community throughout his life. His passion for traveling exemplified his outgoing personality and free spirit.
He grew up in Oakhurst and most recently lived in Edison, NJ. A graduate of Ocean Township High School (’86), he earned a BA (‘90, cum laude) in Finance from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and an MBA in Finance (’05, summa cum laude) from Rutgers University. He worked for the past 14 years at AT&T, most recently as a finance manager. Previously, he had been a financial analyst at ADP and Concurrent Computer, and an investment banker at Janney, Montgomery, Scott.
Beloved son and brother, he is survived by his parents Edward and Ingrid Gaus, sister Stephanie (and husband Erik Evensen) Gaus, and brother Wesley (and wife Ann) Gaus. He was the nephew of Marilyn and Walt Fink, Edwin and Pat Gaus, Francis and Victoria Gaus, and Don and Carolyn Gaus.
Pittsburgh, PA: Viewing at Devlin Funeral Home July 28, 7-9pm; funeral Mass at St. Sebastian Parish July 29, 10am; burial at St. Augustine RC Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made in his name to the American Heart Association.

    Deepest sympathies to all of Ed’s family. As a member of the AT&T Network on LinkedIn, I was shocked to hear of the sad news that Ed has passed away. Such a young man! As a former member of AT&T Consumer Services, I worked with Ed while I was in Customer Care. He was always very helpful and an especially nice person to deal with.

    My condolences to Ed’s family during this time of sorrow.

    I got the chance to meet Ed while working at AT&T in Morristown NJ and remember him having a great sense of humor and chatting with him about the roadster he won in some sort of drawing (if memory serves me correctly it was bright yellow or red)

    God Bless

    Ed was a coworker of mine, but a friend as well. I was lucky enough to have just spent 1/2 hour talking to Ed on Thursday when he visited us in the office. He looked great and his sense of humor had not diminished one bit. I am truly saddened by his passing and my deepest sympathies go out to his family. He will be missed by all of us who knew him.
