Seth Edward Bussa, 24, of Muncie, joined his father, David Bussa, in the restful peace and joy of Heaven
on Monday, October 7, 2019. He was born on June 8, 1995, in Muncie, to the late David Bussa and Kay
Seth was a quiet soul with a huge heart who would give you the shirt off his back without hesitation. He
lived his life to the fullest, usually surrounded by many friends. He enjoyed cars, from the classic “Hot
Rods” to the newer, high performance vehicles, but mostly pick-up trucks. He found riding the family’s
jetski and hanging out on the pontoon was a great source of fun and relaxation but most of all, Seth
loved spending time with his daughter, Hadleigh. The happiest day of his life was the day his beautiful
daughter was born and he made sure everyone knew that. He spent everyday, from the minute she was
born, showing her how much he loved and adored her, his little “mini-me”.
In addition to his mother, Kay (finance' Tom Brauberger), Seth is survived by his daughter, Hadleigh
Grace Bussa of Muncie; brother, Sean (Alexandra) Bussa of Clarksville, TN; Elizabeth Batt (and family) of
Yorktown; Nickolas Brauberger (and family) of Anderson; nephew, Maverick Bussa of Clarksville, TN;
Grandpa and Grandma Bussa, of Daleville; best friend and Hadleigh’s mother, Annlyn Stroud, of Muncie;
and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceding Seth in death, in addition to his father, was his maternal grandmother, Pat Gindhart; maternal
grandparents, Rex L. and Ilena Howell; aunt, Pati O’Neal; cousins, Melissa Williams and Paul Watts.
