    Wilbur Charles Bussard, 84, former mayor of New Stanton, died Thursday,
May 4, 2017, in the Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital, Greensburg, surrounded by his loving family. He was born July 8, 1932, in Arona, to the late John and Mary Miller Bussard, and was the last survivor of his 10 brothers and sisters. Wilbur was employed by A.M.F. and later self employed repairing bowling equipment. He was active in his community and served on the New Stanton Borough Council for 40 years. He was a lifelong member of the St. Mark's Lutheran Church, New Stanton, and was a honorary-life member of the New Stanton Volunteer Fire Department for
61 years, holding the office of Trustee for 25 years. He was instrumental in the development of the New Stanton Park. He served in the Korean War as a motor pool sergeant. He enjoyed gardening, camping, hunting and traveling. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend to many. Wilbur married his childhood sweetheart, Sara (Hower), who preceded him in death in 2014. He sadly was preceded in death by his son, John, in 1999. He is survived by his daughter, Marlene Muchoney and her husband, Dave, of Greensburg; son, Wilbur Bussard and his wife, Carla, of Mt. Pleasant; a daughter-in-law, Renee Bussard; his grandchildren, David Muchoney and his wife, Joyce, Mark Muchoney and his wife, Carina, Nicholas Bussard, Amber Fratto and her husband, Pete; and great-grandchildren, David, Taryn, Mia and Jade Muchoney, Ellie Fratto, and his expected great-grandson, Mack Muchoney, due later this month. "Pappy Wilbur" will be greatly missed by his family and friends. The family wishes a special thank you to Dr. Joseph Macioce and the staff at Westmoreland Hospital for their compassionate care. 

    Interment was May 9 in the Westmoreland County Memorial Park Cemetery, Hempfield Township, with full military honors accorded by the Armbrust Veterans Honor Guard.

    Rest in peace, Wilbur, we'll take the line from here.
