After returning home, he married the love of his life, Christine Dillard in St. Louis, MO on June 12, 1971. To this union two children were born, La’Tricia and Anthony. Hus was employed by Moog Automotive for many years before the plant relocated. He went on to work for BioMerieux before retiring in 2013. Hus was known to be a man that loved his family.
