On May 31, 1988, Hus retired after a 30-year career at Weirton Steel, where he worked 20 years on 8 Tandem and ten years in the carpentry shop. All who knew Hus knew of his love for cars, especially antique cars. This love affair started at the age of twelve and carried on throughout his life.

Their favorite shows were Hershey with Rick and Judy, Daytona, Charlotte, Stowe, Vermont, and Pomona, CA. A workaholic, Hus would spend most of his life working on cars.

He also enjoyed time with his good friend, Bill Reedy in the Racoon Club of Detroit Michigan In addition to his parents, Hus was preceded in death by his brother Mike Drizake. He will be remembered with love and admiration by his honey of 48 years, Sara “Sue” Rhoades of Weirton, several nieces and nephews, and the many friends he made along his way.
