A man who drove a school bus for 55 years will be laid to rest in a school bus casket
For 55 years, residents of his small town of 1,170 trusted him to bus their children to and from school. He was a school bus driver from 1949 to 2005. It's painted yellow with black hinges, with the same lettering that appeared on Davis's 1949 school bus. The model is fitting for long-time drivers: Another bus driver of 50 years, David Wright of Tennessee, was laid to rest in a school bus-styled casket in August. If he couldn’t have the service inside of a school bus, his casket may be the next-best thing.
