Pete and Deb Bushouse were married 40 years ago on Saturday June 19, 1976 at the Bethlehem Baptist church on East Cork Street by the bride’s special cousin Charles Hulbert. Four years later they were blessed with their first child, Chadrich Troy Bushouse, followed by daughters Amanda Rae Bushouse in 1982 and Kimberly Nicole Bushouse in 1985. All three children are now married and Pete and Debbie were blessed with nine beautiful grandchildren. Pete is employed by the city of Kalamazoo and Debbie is a stay at home wife, mother and grandma.
