Wm. "Gus" Moorhead 1929 - 2008

There are icons associated with any city or town I suppose, Versailles is not an exception. A few that I consider would be Roy Hunter, Forest Waters, Herman Jahnigen, Flo Pegee, Jim Tyson, Al Smith Sr., Sharlot Bovard, Ma' Curry, and surely many others. Mr. Moorhead as the school kids called him, never "Gus", will be added to this list. He had many short phrases he uttered often but the one that was most memorable in my mind was; "If the shoe fits wear it." Well Mr. Moorhead you are an icon of Versailles and the shoe fits. Versailles will miss you.

See and hear a tribute to Tyson Auditorium
