Wade Busch Obituary

Wade Busch, 35 of Erie, passed away after battling a myriad of medical complications, on Wednesday, December 20, 2023, at Cleveland Clinic.

He was born January 27, 1988, in Wayne, NJ; a son of (the late) Joseph Busch and Nancy (Espy) Busch.

Wade's youth was spent mainly in Raleigh, NC.  After graduation, Wade worked a variety of jobs; salesclerk, chef, brewmaster, carpenter, and plumber.

Wade was born with a big heart, a heartfelt laugh, as well as an argumentative side, which he lovingly shared with friends and family.  A child at the core, he lived life that way.  Wade enjoyed nature, and sharing creek adventures with his dog, Mojo, and good buddy, Bob Dunlap.  Always bringing back a good story to tell.

Wade's connection to animals ran deep.  He loved dogs, of course, but fish?  The family created a large fishpond by his front door.  Each goldfish was thoughtfully named, and each one accounted for.

Wade - You are missed!  We Love You!

Mother - Nancy (Busch) Espy
