American Patriotic 10


Lt. Col August "Gus" Holubeck (Ret.)

August 25, 1930 ~ February 10, 2019 (age 88)

Wilson Funeral Home is honored to post the obituary for Lt. Col August "Gus" Holubeck (Ret.) as he was a well-known native of Dillonvale, Ohio.  The services were held Feb. 14th at John Gentleman Mortuary in Bellevue, NE. 

Gus has completed his last flight and has landed at the Throne of God. Born into a large family in southeast Ohio, his father and brother provided for the family working in the local coal mines. After graduating high school he attended Miami of Ohio University on a football scholarship and became a consensus All-American while earning his Business degree. Gus was commissioned an Air Force Officer after graduation and began his pilot training shortly there after. Gus married Marilyn Beyers in her hometown of Roscoe, SD in 1959 and they began raising their family as they moved around the country. He served his country proudly for 29 years, and was a B-52 Command Pilot during the Vietnam War. After retirement from Offutt AFB, Gus and Marilyn owned and operated two Baskin Robbins stores for a number of years to the delight of their kids, grandkids, and family friends. 

Gus is survived by his loving wife Marilyn; children, Paul (Diane) Holubeck, Chuck (Leslie) Holubeck, Steve Holubeck, Kristen Reeser and Mary (Dave) Rahmel; 8 grandchildren and sister Helen. 

Gus never met a stranger, and was a mentor to many who he crossed paths with.
