LONGWOOD, Fla. - William 'Bill' Bussey, age 67, of Longwood, Florida, passed away on September 19, 2008. He was born on July 9, 1941 to Fred and Cleo Bussey in Augusta, Georgia. He is survived by his wife, Lamonda; daughter, Laura Johnson (Derek); son, Bryan Bussey (Brandy); his mother, Cleo Bussey; brother, Fred Bussey (Faye); sisters, Doris Montgomery and Sallie Rueggeberg (Fred); and two granddaughters Carly and Emma Johnson, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Bill married the love of his life, Lamonda Seigler, on September 23, 1967. On their honeymoon, they prayed for God to bless their marriage and He answered their prayers. They had two children and lived their lives devoted to their family and Jesus Christ. Bill served his country in the U. S. Navy. He loved the sea and after the Navy became an accomplished sailor. Bill was both athletic and adventurous, he enjoyed water skiing, snow skiing, cycling and hiking. He looked forward to his weekend cycling club. His sense of adventure led him to take week long trips once a year in some exotic and rugged area of the country. Bill took great pride in his profession as a computer network specialist. Bill joyfully ministered to the lost and needy while serving at Aloma Baptist Church and later at First Baptist Church of Sweetwater. He faithfully attended a weekly prayer breakfast at Aloma Baptist for over 30 years. Bill had a great sense of humor and never met a stranger. He was always willing to talk about his children, grandchildren and especially his Lord. Though we will miss him greatly, we rejoice at his "home-going" to spend eternity with his Savior, Jesus Christ. Visitation was held at First Baptist Church of Sweetwater in Longwood. Bill's memorial celebration was also held at the church, Tuesday morning, September 23, 2008. In lieu of flowers, Bill requested, that a donation be made to the: Masters Academy Teacher Endowment Fund, 1500 Lucas Lane, Oveido, FL 32765, phone number (407) 971-2221 ext. 1246. Bill and Lamonda were instrumental in establishing what has become the largest, private, Christian school in the Orlando area. Sign the guestbook at AugustaChronicle.com
