My condolences to the Bussewitz's. I'll always be indebted to Mr. Bussewitz for spearheading the funding and organization of BD Youth Hockey. Being from a family of recently relocated hockey crazed kids from Madison at that time, that was a dream come true. Always had a blast with the kids at Old Hick and graciously hosted many a time as a kid in your home. Rest in peace Mr Buzzy.

I want to extend my sympathies to the family and friends. There are many fond memories of family vacations spent together in Florida and many BBQs over the years. You could always count on Buzzy for a funloving time. His sense of humor kept the crowd in stitches. The love for his family was evident as he loved to those closest to him happy. I know this is a hard time, I pray that the memories are cherished and his love is held in your hearts. The Peace of the Lord be with you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Karen and family, We were saddened to learn of Ron's death. He was a community stalwart. You and Ron were some of the first BD-ites Kay and I met in the spring of 1974. You sold us our first frig and Ron sold me his lawn mower right out of your garage! He used shake his head when I told him that mower still ran after his new one had long since failed. I always enjoyed Ron's forthright nature and good humor. Jack Stellpflug
