TFF member Keith Gustartis obituary

Texas FlyFishers member and supporter Paul Akscyn shared the following with us:

“Keith  has been a member of Texas FlyFishers since 2014 and regularly attended meetings. He was generous and outgoing, as many of you may have heard some his comments/questions at past meetings.  Keith was also active in Reel Recovery program. However, due his declining health situation he has been in the Hospital and Rehab since last October.  Needless to say he was a great fishing buddy and lover of the outdoors and we will all miss him.”
