To my childhood friends & neighbors, The Cordova family, I’m very sorry to hear of Augusto’s passing. The Richitellis and the Cordovas lived just a couple houses away from each other, and Augusto and I spent quite a bit of time at each other’s houses. We were good friends as kids. I read his obituary and I can’t help but think that God would be pleased with his life. Augusto was a good and gentle soul. If only the world had more like him. May God bless you all. Eddy

I am so saddened to hear this. I was a colleague of Gus's at CLASI I first met Gus when he was a student of mine—and a stellar one at that. I was co-teaching a Disability Law class at Delaware Law School, and Gus was the one student older than both us professors. Gus was in the evening program at the Law School—he was pursuing the law degree while simultaneously working full-time at DuPont. Gus was hard working, extremely bright, and thoroughly prepared. In fact, I was a little worried that he would be asking questions to which I did not know the answer. Indeed my fears proved true—he brought insights and perspectives to the cases that I had not before considered. I remember thinking that Gus would make a great legal aid lawyer, and as it turns out, Gus thought so too. Gus started as a student intern at CLASI while still in law school, and then we hired him when a staff attorney position opened up. Gus worked in the housing and family units in Wilmington for eleven years until he retired young in 2016. I will remember Gus as a good colleague- he developed and maintained the housing case database for us--a gentle soul, and an earnest, hard working colleague. Gus treated everyone with kindness and respect, and I will remember him warmly and fondly. I am sending peace and love to his family.
