BROTHER ROBERT J. BUSS, 75, MEMBER OF SOCIETY OF MARY

Brother Robert J. Buss was involved in education for 55 years as a member of the Society of Mary and was one of four missionaries who helped found a school in Lima, Peru, in 1939.
He taught at Central Catholic High School from 1951 to 1960. He went back to work at the school from 1972 to 1989, this time running the bookstore, working in the business office and overseeing the school's fleet of buses and cars.
Buss died Monday of a heart attack suffered in St. Joseph's Community, a nursing home for retired Marianist brothers and priests on the St. Mary's University campus. He was 75.
A native of St. Louis, he professed his first vows in the Society of Mary on August 15, 1934. He took his perpetual vows on August 11, 1938. His first posistion was missionary at Colegio Santa Maria in Lima from 1939 to 1945.
Afterward, Buss was assigned to East St. Louis, Illinois. He held additional posistions in Milwaukee, St. Louis and Kirkwood, Missouri.
Survivors include two sisters, Annabell Redel and Virginia Martin, both of St. Louis; and a brother, Raymond Buss of Houston.
