November 16, 2023, 73, Goldsboro —
Gary Joseph Busdieker, 73, passed away suddenly on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at ECU Health Medical Center in Greenville. Gary was born in Wayne County to the late George Joe Busdieker and Lou Ellen Howell Busdieker on October 19, 1950. In addition to his parents, Gary was preceded in death by his brothers, George “Buzzy” Busdieker, Bill Busdieker, and Louis Busdieker.
Gary was no stranger to hard work. He ran a successful agriculture construction company which was built on trust and loyalty. He treated his customers like family. They knew Gary’s word was good and this is how he conducted business.
Gary was a joy to be around and loved to laugh. He lived up to his name, as he was always kidding around and joking. Watching others laugh brought him joy. He took care of others and was simply a good man. Above all the opportunity to aggravate and spend time with his grandson was always an ultimate joy.
If you wanted to see Gary relaxing and enjoying life, you would find him fishing, hunting, or on his tractor. He loved the outdoors and found a new rhythm of life when outside.
Possessing a heart for others, Gary was kind to all God’s creatures, from mankind to animals. Through the years, he had numerous dogs and many were his beloved breed, dachshunds. He could provide them a good home and they always enjoyed anything Gary was eating.
