OBITUARY

Sidney Ralph Busby

19 September, 192630 October, 2020

Our sweet loving father, devoted husband, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend passed away peacefully October 30, 2020. He was born September 19, 1926 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Sidney Hooper Busby and Eleanor Susanna Keep.

Sidney graduated from West High School in 1943 and attended the University of Utah. He married the love of his life, Barbara, 73 years ago in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Together they shared a wonderful life with their three children. His career consisted of 40 years at Mountain Fuel Supply Company working as a land surveyor and as a safety supervisor. With his great carpentry skills, he helped build the family cabin where he created many years of good memories. He loved road trips. One of his favorite places was Jackson Hole where he spent several weeks each year for family vacations. He spent many years living part time in St. George golfing, enjoying family, friends, and the beautiful landscapes. He loved being outdoors, fishing, snowmobiling, and just enjoying the sunshine. His grandchildren always put a big smile on his face. He loved traveling and spending time with them. In his later days, he enjoyed viewing family photos, reading, doing puzzles, word searches, and snacking on cookies or peanuts. We are all lucky to have known and loved him. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his daughters, Cydnee Fullmer and Susan Rogalski (Robert), five grandchildren, Adriane Moeller (Matthew), Ashlee Racine, Bronson Fullmer, Scott Swensen (Stephanie), and Kristin Swensen, along with eight great grandchildren, Makailee, Makenzie, Tristan, Ella, Lincoln, Avery, Grayson, and Keegan.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Barbara Elaine Hansen Busby and son, Jeffrey Ralph Busby, sisters, Eleanor Weeks, Leone Johnson, Dorothy Victor, and Carol Busby.

Many thanks to his kind neighbors and the wonderful caregivers at Sunrise of Sandy and Inspiration Hospice Care for their loving care in his last days.

Sid was one of the first to welcome me to the Mountain Fuel Supply Company Family the day I hired on in October 1963. Sid had a smile on his face every time I conversed with him. He brought out the positive in all who were around him. He will be greatly missed.

Syd and Susan,
I just want to tell you how much I loved your dad (and your mom)! Our parents shared so many life experiences together...working together, playing together and just being together. And now they are together again!
Not too long before my daddy died the two of us went to St. George together. The highlight for both of us was visiting in your parents home and going out to lunch. I remember your dad showing us pictures he was going through and organizing and loved his smile as he talked about each of you!
May we carry on the love, the goodness, the joy and the hard work our parents so sweetly taught and exemplified.
Sending love...
Linda Barker

I Express my sympathy to the family. I had the privilege of Sid's association for a number of years at Mt. Fuel Supply. He was always friendly and had a cheerful attitude. I was happy to call him my friend.

I worked with Sid at Mountain Fuel/Questar. He was such a kind and caring man. Always had a smile and "what can I do for you" attitude. Keeping the family in prayer.
