A beloved Minnesota bus driver died on Saturday at the age of 88 and had the perfect send-off. Born in 1931 on a family farm in Grand Meadow, life-long farmer Glen P. Davis also drove a school bus for 55 years, never once getting into an accident, his obituary says.
As an homage to his dedication to getting kids safely to school and on time, Jim Hindt of the local Hindt Funeral Home donated a custom-made casket to Davis, painted to look just like a school bus.
The casket was actually Davis’ idea,the Star Tribune says. He came up with it 20 years ago and pitched the idea to his friend, Hindt, who made his wish come true.
