    Smile want everything to be just so

    That's when the door opened and Gunny walked in. I thought he looked a little older than he had earlier. He was the kind of guy who wanted everything to be just so. Having gangsters plunge to a gruesome death from his hotel wasn't part of his perfect picture.
    What does it mean "wanted everything to be just so"? Thanks in advance.

    The Oxford Advanced Learner's English Dictionary has one of the following definitions:
    (formal, esp. Brit) performed or arranged with precision.
    My understanding is that the guy wants everything to be perfect or everything to be after his own heart.
