Vale 215001 LT COL Igors (Gus) Pauza AM – 1RAR & 7RAR
23 Sep 1945 – 3 Dec 2022
Gus was a friend we served in the same company in 1RAR 65-66. In 1985 when he was the XO of 5/7 RAR we worked together on the committee that arranged the first 1RAR Reunion and Memorial dedication at Holsworthy, sadly now only two members of that committee remain.
I received the sad news of his death from his son Matt, “Dad passed away on the night of the 3rd of December and has left an enormous hole in their hearts.”
Gus served in 1RAR 1965-66 and 7RAR 1970-71. In the 1991 Australia Day Honours he received the Order of Australia (Military Division) for service to the Australian Army as Director of the Royal Australian Army Pay Corps
His service will be held at 13:30 on the 15th of December at the Norwood Crematorium 65 Sandford Street, Mitchell ACT.
