Gus Lankford

July 26, 2022


Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure 

You are loved beyond words, missed beyond measure. 

With much love spread and many memories shared, our beloved Gus accepted his angel's invitation into the kingdom on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 at home in Trenton, New Jersey. As a result, our hearts are less bright but we know the heavens are filled with extra doses of love, joy, peace and laughter. 

Gus Lankford (Thurman) was born March 14, 1961 in Trenton, New Jersey to Geral­dine Lankford and Willis Thurman. 

He was educated in the Trenton public school system. Gus worked as self employed. 

In his leisure time, Gus loved being outdoors fishing. He enjoyed cooking, carpentry and cutting hair 

He was predeceased by his parents Geraldine Lankford and Willie Thurman; sister Genevieve; a brother Willie Thurman Sr. 

Gus' memory will be cherished and forever remembered by his two sons Tyrone Lankford and Lamar Price; his grandchildren Tajanae Taylor and seven other grand­children; two brothers Timothy Lankford and Lorenzo Lankford; a great grandson; a nephews Jonas Thurman and Donnell Thurman; his ex-wife Annette Price; a special friend She She; a host of cousins, other relatives and friends. If we missed any other names forgive us because I time was limited.
