Mister Bustin hired me out of high school to do the CA program in Liverpool. Much water under the bridge since then. He was a mentor and an incredible influence in my years after that. My condolences to Marion and family. My thoughts go out to you and my reflections over the years. Sherlock Rafuse.

My deepest condolences, Mrs Bustin, Peter and family. I have the best and warmest memories of family ski trips to Sugarloaf, Tremblant, etc., with the Bustin family. Mr Bustin was famous for assigning us kids with tasks for the week- icemaker, dish washer, table setter and the like. We were a well oiled machine thx to his organizing capabilities. He really was the best and kindest man with such a great sense of humour and fun. Lots of love from the MacNeill clan at this difficult time.

Condolence from David Bustin on November 14th, 2020 2:51 pm

My deep condolences to Marion and the rest of the family. Reigh was one of my late father’s (Fred) cousins. He always thought well of him and we enjoyed out visits to their place in Broad Cove (still remember riding that lawn tractor!). We hadn’t seen him or Marion in a number of years, but they have always been in our thoughts. He was a very nice man and he will be missed.

Condolence from David M. Seller on November 14th, 2020 5:08 pm

My thoughts and prayers are with you Marion, and family, at this very difficult time. As I read the obituary in the paper I recalled many wonderful times together at 1st Congregational Church where you were always participating in wonderful ways – with Reigh always having a smile on his face and encouraging others. In this season of pandemic isolation when a gathering of family and friends is not possible, may you all receive the Grace and Comfort of our Heavenly Father in your ongoing time of loss.
Blessings and Love, David Seller

My Wife ,Elizabeth ,and I join in offering our sincere condolences on the passing of that great gentleman Reigh Bustin .
I had the honour of succeeding Reigh as President of Neptune Theatre many years ago . He was a stalwart , level headed ,and insightful person . He was caring and generous .
We also had the pleasure of being fellow “inmates” of Summer Gardens in Halifax for a number of years .
I was always touched by his soft spoken kindness and consideration of others .
He will be missed by the many friends and neighbours who had the chance to be in contact with him .

Condolence from Lois & Karl Butler on November 15th, 2020 4:40 pm

We, Lois and Karl Butler of Bath On. are finding it extremely difficult to except the news of the death of our long time friend Reigh Bustin. We first met Marion and Reigh in the late 1950’s and over the years they have become like family to us. Because of COVTD 19 we are not able to be with Marion and family in person. In recent years, during our twice yearly trip to Broad Cove we now treasure the good times spent with them. We will truly miss Reigh. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Marion, Susan Peter and their families.

Condolence from Ella Roberts on November 15th, 2020 6:36 pm

Shocked to hear of Reigh’s passing. Thinking of you and your family. May God’s peace be with you.

Reigh “Mr. Bustin” was a great presence in my life since our family’s spent time together in Fredericton, Halifax and Lunenburg/Queens County. My parents, Reigh and Marion have enjoyed a special & very close friendship since the mid-60’s that continues today.

Our condolences to the Bustin family on Reigh’s passing, Marion, Susan, the late Janice Doull and Peter.

We have many special memories that will carry on, the annual Grey Cup party’s on Stanley Street, Reigh’s vegetable garden and lobster boils by the water at Broad Cove, visits to the Manning’s, Christmas dinner at our home or on South Street and many others.


The Reed Family
