Donald G. Pusey, 75

Donald G. Pusey, 75, of Frankford, Del., passed away on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018, at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md. He was born in Millsboro, Del., on Nov. 1, 1942, son of the late William H. Pusey and Maggie M. (Greenwalt) Pusey.

Pusey graduated from Millsboro High School, in the Class of 1960. He retired from the Dupont Company in Seaford, Del., on April 30, 1996, with 34 years of service as a supervisor in the lab. He then worked for two years for Mohawk Electrical Systems in Milford, Del., and then started his own home-repair and painting business, until 2017. He would help anyone with repair projects around their home, and he truly found it rewarding.

Pusey was a lifetime member of the Frankford Volunteer Fire Company, serving as ambulance captain from 1970 to 1973 and company chief in 1975. He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Pusey was preceded in death by three brothers, Oral B. Pusey, Dale Pusey and Merrill Pusey; and two sisters, Betty Godwin and Gloria Pauley. He is survived by his loving wife of almost 57 years, Barbara A. (Hudson) Pusey; three children, Douglas Pusey and his wife, Rene, of Frankford, Danny Pusey of Frankford, and Dana Young and her husband, R. Tyler Young, of Lewes, Del.; five grandchildren, Karin Tyndall and her husband, Danny, of Newark, Md., Trevor Pusey of Frankford, Dylan Pusey of Frankford, and Addison and Jacob Young of Lewes, Del.; a brother, William Pusey and his wife, Linda, of Millsboro; and a sister-in-law, Rachel Pusey.
