GREENVILLE, Herve J. Busque, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, has gone home to fish the big lake. Herve, 79, passed away, January 10, 2003 at the Jackman Health Center from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was born in St. Benoit L’Arbre, Quebec, Canada on May 12, 1923 to Joseph and Arthemise (Poulin) Busque. Herve was an avid outdoorsman, going fishing and hunting every chance he got after his retirement. He first came to Maine from Canada, working in the woods. He moved his family to Greenville in January, 1957. He worked for several years at the Scott Paper Company, before starting his own very successful business, Herve Busque, Inc. Woods Broker. He became a well-known woods contractor in Maine and Quebec. Herve was a communicant and usher at Holy Family Catholic Church, where he was also a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Herve is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Louisette (Cliché) Busque; children, Ghislain of Haverhill, Massachusetts, Marcel of Monson, Martine Richards and her husband, James of Charlotte, Vermont, Peter and his wife, Michelle of Windham, Mary Fowle and her husband, James of Greenville; grandchildren, Kevin Busque and his wife, Leah; Danielle, Joseph and Patricia Busque; Michelle (Richards) Peters and her husband, Jonathan; James, Kimberly, David, Jennifer and Elizabeth Richards; Peter, Shelby, Shannon and Nicholas Busque; Christopher and Emily Fowle; a brother, Donat Busque; sisters, Jeanne D’arc, Claire, Rosa, Jeannine, Jeannette, Jacqueline; special nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.
