Obituary of Henry Busch


July 7, 1927 - Flint, Michigan

November 15, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta



Henry Busch went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, at the age of 95 years.


Henry was married to Helen (nee Lougheed) for sixty-eight years (1949-2016). He leaves his son Terry (Kathleen), grandchildren Troy, Victoria (Scott Schellenberg) and Matthew (Catie); as well as great-grandchildren. Also grieving his loss are siblings, Martha (Gordon Elhard), Marie Ginther, Victor (Sharon), Fred (Juanita), Freda Petterson and sister-in-law Donna Rose (George); as well as many nieces and nephews.


His parents, Henry and Elisabeth Busch left Russia to originally settle in Michigan. They moved to Alberta early in the lives of their first two children, Ann and Henry. Henry began his first, and only, job with the Canadian Pacific Railway at the age of seventeen in 1944. He worked for the CPR in several roles until his retirement on January 1, 1986.


Henry and Helen were part of Centre Street Church for decades and modelled a life of faith and service. Henry was devoted to his wife and family. When Helen's health deteriorated, he cared for her and showed the depth of love they shared until her passing. Henry lived his last years at St. Marguerite Manor in Calgary. He was cared for and loved by the staff. The family wants to express our appreciation for their wonderful care.


Perhaps Henry's greatest legacy was his faith and the example he set as a person who was completely content in all circumstances.
