Mr. Irvin D. Bueneman, 78, of Troy, MO, passed away on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at St. Joseph Hospital West in Lake St. Louis. Irvin was born on November 27, 1933 in Moscow Mills, the son of Ora and Helen (Westerman) Bueneman. While growing up, he attended both Moscow Mills, and the Troy schools. Even as a little boy, Irvin had a passion for farming and always wanted to help his father with the chores. In 1952 he enlisted in the United States Air Force, and was proud to serve his country until 1957. Irvin worked for many years as a crop and livestock farmer, and this is where he felt at home, on the farm. He was a past member of the Lincoln County Pork Producers, the Lincoln County Beef Producers, the Missouri Farm Bureau, and the American Legion. Irvin was also a member of the Troy V.F.W. Post # 8828 and was a past commander. He was a lifetime member of Friedens United Church of Christ in Moscow Mills, and served as past president of the board and served on the church council. When he wasn't farming, he drove a school bus for the Troy R-III school district for many years. No grass ever grew under his feet and he was always on the go. Irvin was a hard worker and a loyal friend to many. He will be missed by all those who knew him.
