Wayne Michael Busby

June 6, 2019

Wayne Michael Busby, age 71 of Clare, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 3, 2019 at the Woodland Hospice Home of Mt. Pleasant.  On April 8, 1948, Wayne was born the only child of Lamar L. and Mary Alice (McConnell) Busby in Detroit, MI.  

He graduated from East Detroit High School in 1966 and raised his three daughters in New Baltimore.  He was united in marriage to Theresa “Teri” Gepford in St. Charles, MI. on July 22, 2000. Shortly after their marriage in 2000, Wayne and Teri made the decision to move to Mt. Pleasant where they lived until 3 years ago when they settled in the Clare area permanently. 

Wayne proudly served forty-plus years in a management role for the Kroger Corporation, until his retirement in 2008.  After his retirement from Kroger, Wayne kept busy working for H & R Block during the busy tax season and year-round as a volunteer at the MidMichigan Medical Center of Mt. Pleasant.  Wayne was also a proud member of the Rosebush United Methodist Church, the National Rifle Association, and the Michigan Army National Guard, for whom he served a four-year enlistment.  Wayne’s passions in life included working on his computers, shooting at the range and camping, but he especially enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren.  It was “Faith, Family, and Friends” that were important to Wayne.

Wayne is survived by his wife Theresa of Clare, and his children Amy (Tim) Prestridge of Clarksville, OH., Christy (Nathan Kimball) Busby of Atlanta, GA., Shannon Busby of Warren, MI., and Eric White of Clare.  Other survivors include his grandchildren Emilee, Tucker, Sarah, Hannah Claire, and Aiden, his great-granddaughter Madeline, and his daughter-in-law Heather White.  His parents Lamar and Mary Alice Busby and his son Isaiah White precede him in death.

A funeral service in honor of Wayne will take place on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at the Clare Chapel of the Stephenson-Wyman Funeral Home at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Joe Beavan officiating.  Friends may visit Wayne’s family at the funeral home on Saturday, June 8 from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.  Memorial contributions in honor of Wayne may be directed toward Woodland Hospice.  For those unable to attend, online condolences may be shared at www.stephenson-wyman.com
