Now, for the past 30 years, Dr. Kusek has been a dedicated doctor at Boone County Health Center. He is the medical director of four rescue units and is city physician in Albion and Lindsay. He and his wife Carol live in Albion and have three grown children and many grandchildren. He keeps bees in the alley behind his house, helps lead local Boy Scout Troop 155 and enjoys reading books by Louis L’Amour, watching comedies, hiking, biking, and getting his hands dirty at his family farm or in his three gardens.

Dr. Kusek rides his bike to work and prays the Rosary daily. He says the most rewarding part of his job is interacting with people, and he is a well-loved fixture in the community.
