In Loving Memory of Gus Cargile
July 31st 1922 - August 18th 2021
Gus Cargile was a native of Corpus Christi, Texas.
He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend too many.
Gus attended local schools in Corpus Christi, and was a student at Texas A&M University until he enlisted in the US Naval Cadet Pilot Training Program. He graduated the program and received his second lieutenant commission in the United States Marine Corps on August 16th, 1943. He trained as a pilot in F4-U Corsairs fighter planes. He was then assigned to be a flight instructor for the next two years at Corpus Christi Naval Air Station. Gus finished his Marine corps tour with Marine Air Group 53 as a Captain in the US Marine Corps.
Gus owned Industrial fabricators of Corpus Christi, Saxet Gun Shows, and the Swap-A-Rama flea market.
Gus was also an avid collector of many things. He was very well known in the firearms industry for his Colt 1911 collection. As he would often say he wasn't a collector he was a, "hoarder of fine and unusual firearms." His collection grew to exceed over 500 Colt automatics. Last year he decided to give other collectors a chance to obtain some of these treasures that he has accumulated for nearly 60 years.
Gus commissioned Rock Island Auction Company to assist him in distributing the wealth of history in his collection. He stated, "If you are lucky enough to get one from my collection, I only ask you treat it with respect and dignity. They are our history.." You can find much of his collection on the Rock Island Auction site for the September and December auctions.
Gus was the father of seven children, grandfather of twelve, and great-grandfather of seven. All of whom adored and treasured him.
Gus traveled extensively and made friends all over the world. He truly never met a stranger.
He found a secret to living life and practiced it everyday.
He lived life to its fullest everyday, and he did it his way...
Of his many priceless collections, the one he valued the most was his family and countless friends.
He will truly be missed by all that he touched his life..
