Bryan Keith Buzan

 Bryan Keith Buzan, 52, of Sheridan, passed away Wednesday morning, Aug. 1, 2018, at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville. Born May 6, 1966 in Frankfort, he was the son of the late Warren L. “Warnie” and Judith Lynn “Tiny” (Harshman) Buzan. Residing on his farm out in a part of rural Sheridan where counties counties somewhat converge is where you would find this true Sheridan institution.

To say Bryan was a free spirit would probably be an understatement, however, you would be hard pressed to find someone more giving and with a bigger heart. He was very devoted to his family, and yes, that does include his nagging sister Tammy. His niece Morgan was his pride and joy, and Bryan made sure that he was the perfect doting uncle.

Never knowing a stranger and having a prankster’s personality rarely made for a dull time when Bryan was around. No matter how serious the situation, he always found some humor in it. He especially loved messing with his healthcare providers, like the time when Bryan was transferred from ICU to a normal medical floor, and he managed to get himself into his wheelchair and wheeled himself back down to ICU to torment a friend and coworker of his sister, leaving everyone on the floor he was just checked into feverishly trying to find their missing patient. In addition to being a huge Packers fan, Bryan had a love of nature and was an avid hunter and fisherman.

Bryan was a 1984 graduate of Clinton Central High School. He worked for Indianapolis Water Company for 15 years before going to work for his brother-in-law at Forbush Plumbing in Sheridan. He was a member of the Pickard Masonic Lodge F&AM #690 and proud member of the NRA.

Bryan is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Kaye Roberts. She and Bryan were married on July 7, 2017. Also surviving are his stepson Christopher A. Phillips (Meghin) of Sheridan; two step-grandchildren, Finley and Hadley Phillips; nephew, William Brandon Forbush; two nieces, Morgan Jo (Jade) Forbush-Bess and Lindsay Jay (Will) Forbush-Gilbert; two great nephews, Jayden and Madox Gilbert; and last but not least, his constantly nagging sister, Tammy Lynn (Hoppy) Buzan-Forbush of Sheridan.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

All joking aside, Bryan’s family would like to offer a very heartfelt thank you to Fresenius Dialysis Center, Dr. Agnes Schrader, Dr. Kent Erb, Riverview Health, and the ICU staff for all your time, care and comfort that you provided and for putting up with all of his shenanigans.

Visitation will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5, at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St., Sheridan. A Masonic service will be conducted at 4 p.m. following visitation. Funeral services will follow the Masonic Service. Pastor George Cooper will be officiating. A private family Celebration of Life will be conducted at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be presented to either the Pickard Masonic Lodge F&AM #690 or to the Sheridan Church of God.
