William Augustus "Gus" Avinger II, 47 of Santee, South Carolina, departed this life on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
Born on September 6, 1975 in Orangeburg, SC he was a Son of Linda Risher Hodges and the late William "Billy" Avinger.
Gus worked most of his life in the construction industry as a heavy equipment operator until he became the owner and operator of his own business “In A Pinch Property Enhancements” in the most recent years. He loved spending time with his family and especially was loving with the little ones. His favorite pastime was holding a fishing pole in a lake somewhere. He would pitch a tent and spend the night on a riverbank as often as he could. Gus never met a stranger and was always willing to help others. He was a momma’s boy since birth but will surely be missed by all.
Gus is survived by his mother Linda; sister, Brandy Ford (Travers); Brother, Jay Williams (Miranda); wife, Norma Jean Avinger; daughter, Hallie-Diane Avinger; son, William Ashton Avinger; stepdaughters, Carrie Adams and Cindy Goodman; stepsons, Thomas Goodman and Jimmy Adams; nieces, Brayla and Trinity Ford that he loved as his own, grandsons, Opie, Jayden and Kyle; and granddaughters, Aubrey, Haylee and Hazel. Gus also was survived by numerous extended family and friends.
Gus is preceded in death by his father, Billy, and a daughter, Novaleigh Avinger
