Robert ‘Glen’ Bustle, 88, passed away July 23, 2022 at Ripley Crossing in Milan, Indiana.  He was born July 29, 1933 to the late John and Roxie (Nicely) Bustle in Livingston, Kentucky. Glen married Marjory Carol Bustle Sept 12, 1952.  They have been long time residents of Versailles, IN and are active members of the Versailles Church of Christ.

Glen was a retired, self-employed logger and had a love of the outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and gardener. Glen had an engineering mind and was an excellent craftsman. 

He was a private person who found peace in nature and was often found on the front porch swing, whistling a tune, or strumming his fingers against his leg while gazing at the valley he loved. He had faith in his fellow man and believed in the value of a person’s word and the binding strength of a simple handshake.

Glen loved to laugh, was full of mischief and was fond of a good practical joke. He loved his family to pieces and enjoyed time sitting around a campfire, having fish fries by the creek and joining together for holiday gatherings.  He had a competitive spirit, whether it be who caught the most fish, won the most games of corn hole or won the most hands of Rook. 

Many of his family were blessed to have been taught to shoot a gun, cast a fishing line, or paddle a canoe.  His grandchildren will hold dear the memories of being pushed on the trusty porch swing and of being bounced on his knee as he hummed a tune in a way that only he could.

Glen is survived by his wife Margie and their three children: Randy Bustle (Martha), Darrell Bustle (Dawn) & Lisa Ritchie (David).  They have six grandchildren; Jennifer Engle (Steve), Amanda Brooks, Lorina Schneider (Christopher), Michele Logan, Leann Redwine (Nathaniel), Michaela Bustle (Ethan); 16 great grandchildren & 7 great great grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Glen was proceeded in death by his Stepmother, Eliza (Renner) Bustle; Sisters, Flonie Williamson, Mae Mcclure, Virgie Mink & Lillian Anderson; Brothers, Willie Denver, Charles, James and Jesse Bustle; Great Grandsons, Cameron & Keaton Schneider.
