Boynton “Buzz” Hussey was a devoted husband, a gentle and supportive father, and a businessman of unfailing integrity. His warmth, wit and wisdom instantly endeared him to all who met him, and his open-hearted lack of judgement made all feel welcome and loved in his presence. He was a truly unique man, cherished by his family, friends and colleagues. He is, no doubt, hoping that we will all find laughter and moments of joy as we remember how he touched our lives.

In that spirit, we hope you will share your memories or expressions of love in the guest book. There is also an area for stories - your remembrances of him will be a great comfort to the family and we look forward to reading them!

Daughters - Kim Hussey Ross, Kathy Hussey Mater
Grandchildren - Michael Ross, Christa Ross

As the previous poster mentioned, I too was thinking of Buzz and wondering what had happened to him. I was sadden to find out that he has passed away. I worked with Buzz in Dallas while he was at Rauscher Pierce Refsnes…that became Dain Rauscher, then Dain Rauscher Wessels. I enjoyed working with him, and enjoyed his patience and gentlemen attitude with everyone. I fondly remember talking about his antique cars, and enjoyed seeing he pictures of his cars on the website. What a telling impact he had on lives, it has been around 13 years since I worked with him, but yet I still think of him often. We can all hope to have an impact like Buzz did on us with the people we interact with each day. To the Hussey family, your brother, husband, father, and grandfather was a great man. and had a great impact on other lives that he interacted with that you may never know of.

Today for no particular reason I found myself thinking of my former boss Buzz Hussey. I Googgled his name and was sadly surprised to learn of his passing in 2010. Back in 1979 he hired me as a rookie stockbroker at Rotan Mosle in Houston. Buzz was a professional and a gentleman ... too classy for Houston (ha). One month he was urging his brokers to close some sales on an investment that had an upcoming deadline in which to participate. We all received an urgent memo from Buzz which began with "It's time to fish or eat bait!". At first we wondered just what that meant and soon his secretary (Gloria) admitted she'd misread his handwriting while typing the memo. It was supposed to read "It's time to fish or cut bait". It was such a pleasure knowing and working with Buzz Hussey. My best regards to his family.

Diane and Hussey Family--
Our Disciple Bible Study class this Fall is not quite the same without Buzz's presence. In the last D-class we shared together Buzz took on the role of chaplain in that he always brought in a special closing prayer for the class. Most of the time the closing prayer was a poem or narrative that really spoke to Buzz's heart. He wanted to share with us what had touched his heart. And as usually was always the case whatever touched Buzz's heart nudged our souls also. We miss him but know he is engaged in our discussion and discernment from a very esteemed and lofty perch. God bless Buzz Hussey.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Buzz but I have know one of his daughters, Kathy, for some years now. After having read all of the lovely things that have been said about him, I can tell you for sure that they must all be true because he raised an amazingly strong, talented, gifted, caring, open-hearted, and witty daughter. From the deepest place in my heart, I send love to The Hussey Family.

Tim McGraw's famous song says we should live like we are dying; go sky diving, Rocky Mountain climbing and ride a bull named Fumanchu ... in Buzz's own way, he did these things. Oh, he didn't sky diving or mountain climbing, but he made the trip to Chautauqua when many thought he was too sick and there are no doubt many other brave moments during his last months. Buzz fought his horrible disease with all the courage a man would need to ride a bull. Buzz died like he lived. He remained interested in the happiness of his family and friends and wasted no time feeling sorry for himself. He continued doing all the things he loved, teaching Sunday school, appreciating fine music, reading good books, driving his beautiful Packard and Ford Woody, sharing his wisdom with Diane and their daughters and friends. Buzz gave life his very best to the last breath. Tim and I are blessed to call him "friend". Buzz is missed by everyone who loved him. We are thankful for such happy memories. Our love and sympathy Diane, Kim and Kathy.
