Roy Allen Breshears (Buster), the son of Ralph and Opal (Harris) Breshears, was born on the homestead in Fairfield, MO on January 31, 1949. When Buster was born the doctor had to come out in horse and cart to deliver Buster because his mom was not able to get to the hospital because of all the snow. After birth, Ralph and Opal moved their family to Montrose.
Buster’s first job was at Rotert Ford Garage at the age of 12 where he washed parts and pumped gas for the customers. Buster graduated from Montrose High School in 1967. After graduating, Buster joined the Navy for years. After serving his country he returned to Roterts as a mechanic where he was sent to school to learn to work on new cars. Three years after becoming mechanic, he was asked to form a partnership with his dad (Ralph Breshears) in their home town garage. Buster retired at his family owned garage in 2015.
He was united in marriage with Margaret (Holcomb) on May 15, 1976, at the First Baptist Church in Clinton, MO. Their life partnership and journey lasted 41 years. Buster and Margaret enjoyed playing cards and going to the Knights Hall with friends and family into the early hours on the weekends. Buster loved to hunt and fish with his father, who passed down his secrets to him, and later Buster would pass down his hunting and fishing secrets down to his boys.
On January 25, 1980, Buster and Margaret were blessed with their first born, Jason Allen Breshears in Clinton, MO. On November 27, 1982, they were blessed with their second child, Mathew Grant Breshears in Clinton, MO.
