He never missed a day, never called in sick, and never got a welcome like the one he received Friday.
"We are pulling for you" one employee yells out.
They are pulling for him because so many people thought they'd never see Kuss again.
On August 13th, about four in the morning near the lumber yard entrance, Kuss was getting the store ready for business. Four men arrived, police say to steal shingles, Kuss was severely beaten.
He was found hours later about 2 miles away near HWY 249. He spent 34 days in the hospital with a broken jaw and a broken eye socket.
Kuss doesn't remember much.
"I remember the road rash on my face, thats about it," Kuss said.
54-year-old Carl Brown was arrested later that day. Tomball Police also recovered a McCoy's truck and shingles. Three suspects are still on the loose.
To help Kuss pay some of his medical bills, employees and friends had a benefit in his honor at McCoy's that included a silent auction.
Tony Kuss is not silent when it comes to gratitude..
'"Yeah, it's unreal."
Kuss expects to get back to work in a few weeks and not get back at the men who did this to him.
"The lord will forgive them."
