Bernard "Busch" Lawrence Buschkoetter

January 18, 1933November 1, 2019

Busch was a man that had much to say about things he loved. The stories he would tell about the old days, the Navy, his motor home, his garden; his animated tales kept family and friends entertained. His love of a good joke or prank also kept many entertained.

Busch was a true man of God. He prayed every single day and thanked Jesus for all he had. He and Jean spent many years participating and helping in various activities with their church and cherished their worship time together with God.

He was a hard worker, but always had time for a hug and kiss to his kids after a long day. Many of his kids and grandkids enjoyed trips in the motor home, weekends at the family trailer in the mountains and walking through his garden.

He made his priorities clear; his Wife, his Family, his precious dog Queenie. When he knew they were all okay, he was okay.

Busch is survived by his beloved wife Jean, his Daughter Sandy (Leon Jr, Melody, Leon III, Shiloh) his Son Steve (Dana, Nathan), his Daughter Susan (Amanda, Mathew, Michael), his Son Sam(Michael), his son Stan (Fran, Jessica, Anthony, Jennifer), his daughter Sally (Dave, Josh, Jeremy, Melinda, Joe), his daughter Sharon (Clayton, Krista, Christopher).

We will miss Bernard. We had a lot of fun camping and he was always quick with a joke and always willing to help if there was a problem. We are so sorry for your loss.
