I knew Pete and the rest of the Busack family, having grew up around them and working for the family after they opened the store on Guernsey St. I saw Pete during a couple of visits home years ago and shared old times with him. The last time I was home, I met his brother-in-law who works for the Sheriff’s

Dept. He took care of an ankle device my Dad, Robert Alexander, had to wear when he was still living at home with my Mom, Virginia

Alexander. Dad is now in Country Club nursing home in the second stage of Alzheimers. Mom is still living at home.

My deepest sympathies go out to the

entire family along with my prayers

that Pete is now at rest with the Lord. I will miss his smiling face

and his jovial greeting every time I saw him.

Jeanne and family,

I have many fond memories of Junior at the old store on Hamilton St., also bumping into him at our single haunts in the 50’s and 60’s. He lent me his new Thunderbird once to drive a girl home. He was a great, fun-loving guy. Know that he is in a much better place now! Mike
