Memorial Service for Gus Deeds

Posted: Updated:
Family and friends of State Senator Creigh Deeds gathered today in Rockbridge County for a service to celebrate the life of his son, Gus - who took his own life, after attacking his father.


The memorial service was held at Nature Camp where Gus Deeds spent several years as a camper and counselor. Friends, fellow campers, and his father recounted memories to the crowd of about one hundred people. Senator Deeds says the camp was the biggest part of his son's life. There are now plans for two memorials to honor Gus, a pavilion and the camp will offer a scholarship in his name.
