Obituary of Joseph "Gus" Decort

On Tuesday, March 30, 2021 we lost one of the best. Joseph “Gus” Benjamin Decort, passed at the age of 63 following a long battle with cancer.


Gus was born on October 27, 1957. He married his now ex-wife Shauna and was the loving father of his two children. 


On top of being a dedicated and loyal father and grandfather, he was a talented painter, a 30-year member of DC-9 IUPAT and was considered a mentor to many of his fellow painters.


Some of his favorite pastimes included gardening in the community garden, walks on the Piermont Pier, fishing, watching his favorite TV shows, sitting in his recliner, spending time with his family, and throwing the ball around with the kids. He was known for his great sense of humor, his distinct and loving character, and his unending dedication to any job at hand.


Gus is survived by his two loving children, Mikaela and Daniel, his life partner, Denise, his two grandsons, Marlowe and Jackson, his mother Charlotte, sister Sandy, and brother Rodney.


Gus will live forever in the hearts of those who love him.
