RICHARD ERNEST BUSS
Richard was a public-school teacher in Ontario and Manitoba for over 30 years. After retirement, he lived in Alberta and British Columbia. He spent several years exploring these places before returning to Manitoba to live at his beloved Traverse Bay cottage.
Survived by his brother Danny, wife Helen, son Michael (Linda), daughter Erica (Paul), son Matthew, grandsons, Eric and Alec.
Richard was an avid photographer. He documented the lives of his family and his travels. He was a lover of wilderness and had a talent for finding beauty in the world's looked over places. Many of his prints hang on the walls of family and friends.
Richard was a man of peace with a strong belief in equality, equity, and justice. He worked to instill this belief in his children and students. He was possessed of a sharp wit and was known to wield it on any who thought they could out fox him.
A lover of finer things such as a glass of wine, Monty Python, a good song, and the sound of leaves in the wind.
A private memorial will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Orange Shirt Society or the Lake Winnipeg Foundation.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
I am sad to hear about Uncle Ritchie's passing. I will always remember him as a soft spoken, humorous man. I cherish the few times I was able to see him and, in later years, the email correspondence we kept up for a period of time. My condolences to my cousins and Aunt Helen. - Posted by: Darryl Buss (Nephew) on: Oct 13, 2021
I'm sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I have many fond memories of Richard at Chief Peguis J.H. He was an independent and original thinker, and a pleasure to work with. My deepest condolences to Richard's family on their loss. I trust that many fond memories will offer you comfort in the days to come. No one truly dies until no one remembers. - Posted by: Evar Balodis (former colleague) on: Oct 07, 2021
My condolences to the family! - Posted by: Anne Drozd (Friend) on: Oct 02, 2021
I remember my dad and mom (Jack and Freda Dutton) sharing their memories of Richard when he taught in Gilbert Plains. They both smiled when recalling their time spent together. I was given a picture of Michael and myself in a playpen in our back yard. You are in my thoughts and prayers. - Posted by: Linda Dutton (Gilbert Plains Friend) on: Oct 02, 2021
Mr. Buss was one of my middle school teachers at Chief Peguis School in the 70's. I have fond memories of being in his classroom. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Hildy Doerksen (Student) on: Oct 02, 2021
