B.A. was born in Guilford County to the late Banks Algin Busick, Sr. and Ada Payne Busick. He was a member at Baptist Temple Church, where he served in many capacities and was a veteran of the US Army National Guard. He was the owner and operator of Rockingham Septic Tank until his retirement. He loved being involved in the men’s group affectionately known as the “Romeo’s”, a group that would spend time together golfing and going out to eat. Every year he looked forward to planting a large garden and sharing it with others. He could often be seen around town driving his 1901 Mercer, along with his canine companion, Lizzy.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Bette Myrick Busick; sons, Jeff Busick, Bobby Cobb and David Cobb; grandson, Charlie Banks Busick; brothers, Charlie, George and Herman Busick; sisters, Maude and Annie Busick, Nettie Clayton, Helen Wise, Aura Lea Hill, Louise Minter, Mary Bowen and Edna Earl Martin.
He is survived by his grandson, Brian Allen Cobb; great granddaughter, Chaely Busick; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family; and his little ice cream buddy, Natalie Johnson.
The family would like to thank his caregivers, Mary Diane Wilson, Ethel Mitchell and Debra Carter for their excellent care.
