    I really enjoyed knowing Warren through his wife and good friend Sue. She was very happy and took good care of him. Warren had a great sense of humor and loved to travel. I know he was very happy in his second life with Sue.

    I loved Mr. Buescher. I was on student counsel in 7th grade. He was principal. He was always fair to everyone. He taught me to stand up for myself and respect other people. Mr. Buescher had a very nice voice, good looks, and a great smile. Thank you Mr Buescher.
    May you rest in peace.

    I feel like Warren and I were friends for most of my life…….first as my junior high teacher and later through our relationship within community civic orgsnizations. I always respected his intelligence and enjoyed his sense of humor. We enjoyed good natured sparring. He was a wonderful man. I shall always remember him with great fondness.

    I had him for a teacher and a principal. I lived in the country and many times he would give me a ride home on his way home. Very special man.

    Mr. Buescher was a wonderful man and educator. I have many good memories of him from my days at Chester Grade School and then later when I became a teacher. He always had a kind word and good advice for me if I needed it. He was a well respected man who cared about others. Sending my deepest sympathy to his entire family.
