Bob Jones University is saddened by the homegoing this morning of Dr. Dwight Gustafson, 83, dean emeritus of the School of Fine Arts at Bob Jones University.

A beloved and well-known conductor, composer and musician, Gustafson mentored thousands of young people through the forty-three years he served as Dean of the School of Fine Arts at BJU.

He earned his BA (1952) and MA (1954) from BJU and his DMA in Composition from Florida State University (1967).

Gustafson, the longest serving dean in the history of BJU, is survived by his wife, Gwen, their four children as well as sixteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Members of the BJU family have many fond memories of “Dr. Gus” and we rejoice that He is now beholding the face of his Savior.
