Henry Bussler
Class of 1933
Inducted: 2012 Posthumously 

It is said that Henry loved the Wheelersburg community and is fondly remembered
as a kind and generous man who would lend a helping hand to his neighbor. He
operated a small gas station for over 50 years and offered many young men their
first job and extended credit to the needy.

Henry was an active community servant. He served as a Porter Township Trustee
for 31 years and was a founding member of the volunteer fire department. Henry
was a member of the Kiwanis Club and Western Sun Lodge and a 32nd degree
Scottish Rites Mason. He drove a school bus route and was an avid WHS football
booster. In 1937 Henry Bussler married Jean Burnside. They had two daughters,
Connie Boggs and Kaye Cosgrove. There are four grandchildren – Donna, Paul,
Todd and Natalie.

Mr. Bussler passed away July 5, 1984. He served our community with a great
passion so as to bring honor to himself, his family and our school. His life serves as
an example for all graduates of Wheelersburg, past and future, to emulate.
