Richard James Busick

October 12, 1945 ~ May 24, 2022 (age 76)


Richard James Busick, 76, entered into his eternal home on May 24, 2022 at Beacon Place in Greensboro, NC.

 Richard was born on Friday, October 12, 1945 to the late Russell James Busick and Kathleen Poteat Busick in Greensboro, NC.  He was a twin, a fact of which he was very proud.  He remained very close to his twin brother, Russell, until his death in 2020.

 Richard grew up in Ramseur, NC and very early in his life developed a love for all sports.  He participated in many baseball leagues and excelled in the sport, winning many awards and acknowledgments.  He also developed a love of basketball and especially loved the Duke Blue Devils and Coach K.  He played both of these sports throughout high school and was at one time recruited by the Chicago Cubs.

Richard graduated from Appalachian State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education.  He taught middle school in Guilford County for thirty years.

 Although Richard did not have children of his own, he was a loving, caring and doting uncle to his niece, Ashley and nephew, James.

Left to cherish his memory are his very special sister-in-law, Linda Busick, his niece Ashley Busick, and his nephew James Busick and wife Jana Busick.

 There will be no funeral services.  Instead, the family requests that you remember him the next time you watch a Duke basketball game.  Any donations can be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

 George Brothers Funeral Service is assisting the Busick family with funeral arrangements.
