Bernard Busovne, Sr. Obituary

Omnia tempus habent. All things have a season. Tempus nascendi et tempus moriendi. A time to be born and a time to die. Bernard Joseph Busovne Sr. was born in Allentown, PA on July 8, 1927. He died in Niceville, FL on March 9, 2024.

He was a veteran of WWII, having served in the US Navy in the Pacific Theater of Operation. He earned four academic degrees: BSc, MA, MSc and DEd.  He taught Latin and English at the High School level, served as a catalog librarian at the collegiate level, and completed his professional career as a university administrator. He retired from Penn State University, where he was Assistant to the Dean of the Graduate School and Director of Graduate Admissions.

Bernard is survived by his wife of 70 years, Madeline Setzer Busovne, a son, Bernard Busovne Jr. and his wife Janice of Niceville, FL, a daughter, Michele Newton of Niceville, FL, a daughter-in-law Debbie Busovne of Willard, NC, and a son, Philip Busovne and wife Nancy of Carolina Beach, NC. Bernard was the proud grandfather and proud great-grandfather of Julia Williams, husband Wade Williams and their sons Lucas and Jacob and daughter Emma of Flower Mound, TX, Caleb Newton of Northglenn, CO, and Nathan Busovne and wife Haley and their son Banks and daughter Holland of Hurst, TX. And granddaughter by marriage Kristen Ivory, husband Brandon and their son Vincent of Decatur, GA.

The family wishes to thank caregivers Beverly Krupp and Emerald Coast Hospice; Scott Preston, Jessica Williams, and Tanya Simon for great care.

I FLED HIM DOWN THE NIGHTS AND DOWN THE DAYS;

I HIM FLED DOWN THE ARCHES OF THE YEARS;

I FLED HIM DOWN THE LABYRINTHINE WAYS

OF MY OWN MIND; AND IN THE MIDST OF TEARS

I HID FROM HIM, AND UNDER LAUGHTER

UP VISATED HOPES I SPED; AND SHOT PRECIPITATED

ADOWN TITANIC GLOOMS OF CHASMED FEARS,

FROM THOSE STRONG FEET THAT FOLLOWED, FOLLOWED AFTER.

Francis Thompson

The footsteps have ceased. Nunc Bernardus cum Christo est.
