Robert L. Busby

December 23, 1930 — August 15, 2022

Robert L. “Bobby” Busby, 91, Noblesville, passed away August 15, 2022. Mr. Busby was born December 23, 1930, in Anderson, Indiana, to the late Lawrence M. and Mildred (Stoker) Busby.

Bob graduated from Anderson High School in 1949, earned a business degree from Indiana University in 1953, and a degree in Civil Engineering from Purdue University in 1959. He honorably served in the United States Air Force. He briefly worked for Chicago Bridge & Iron Company and then began a successful career with Geupel DeMars, Inc. in 1964. Bob retired as their executive vice president in 1995. He was a member of Holy Spirit at Geist Catholic Church. An avid golfer, he also enjoyed woodworking, sailing and boating on Lake Wawasee, and was always thinking about the next thing to build. Above all, he was a devoted family man who was happiest cheering on his grandchildren in the activities they love. He especially loved the game of girls’ basketball and was proud of his status as Team Indiana Elite Perry’s #1 Fan. Bob will be fondly remembered for his intelligence, sense of integrity, and delightful sense of humor.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister Betty Jean Clem and her husband, Maurice.
