W. John Buzza - 06/22/2004
Brigadier General R.C.A.F.
On Tuesday June 22nd, 2004 age 81 years. A life well lived, claimed so quickly by the cancer he faced with his usual unrelenting courage and humour. Wife, K. Ruth Buzza, who loved him for 57 years; cherished children, Julie Murphy (Paul), Paul Buzza (Emi); 5 grandchildren, 1 sister, 2 brothers and many wonderful friends, especially from his military days, share a sense of loss, but celebrate that he lived so well with such drive, and interest in everyone and everything. A family to love dearly, friends to laugh with and a military career that saw him rise form a boy airman in 1939 to a distinguished general in the Canadian Armed Forces. He spent much of WW11 as a air gunner, but was promoted and trained as a fighter pilot, his greatest love. General Buzza led by example and was a wonderful mentor to many.
