Horst “Harry” Busse

1938 – 2020

Mr. Horst “Harry” Busse of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Mrs. Ilona Busse, passed away suddenly at Chinook Regional Hospital on Sunday, December 20, 2020, at the age of 82 years. He leaves to mourn his wife of 59 1/2 years, Ilona Busse, three daughters Diann Fender (David), Peggy Busse, and Carol Busse; grandsons Kai and Sam; eldest sister Marga Jaegli of Westlock, AB; youngest sister Christa Van Ee of Vauxhall, AB; as well as several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents Friedrich and Frieda Busse of Vauxhall, AB.

Harry enjoyed fishing, coffee with friends, a “sweet tooth” with his friends and collecting unique curios from his travels. He was a longstanding member of the International Union of Operating Engineers for over 50 years. He took pride in “running crane”, and worked on numerous oil and gas construction projects throughout AB. Before retiring at 64, Harry finished his last “gig” on the oil sands in Fort Mac, AB. In addition to this, he also worked as an independent gravel truck operator.

Flowers are gratefully declined. For those who wish memorial donations may be made to the Lethbridge and District Humane Society, 2920 16 Ave N, Lethbridge, AB T1H 5E9.

    I’m very saddened by the loss of Harry. He was known as the groovy uncle down south at lethbridge. Distance kept me from many conversations and laughs. I regret not having spent a lot more time visiting over the years. Rest in peace and may the fishing yield many lunkers on the other side.
