BUSH, Leslie Kenneth

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our father, husband and grandfather, Les Bush on October 13, 2015.

Leslie is survived by his loving wife Emma; daughter Pat; four grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his two sons Garth and Marty and his siblings Norm, Gene and Millie.

Born in Saskatoon, SK, on December 13, 1921 and then later lived in Luseland, Major Star City, SK, until he joined the navy in 1941.

He served during World War 2 on corvettes in the North Atlantic, his last ship being the HMCS Rockcliffe. He then came home and married Emma Taphorn on July 22, 1947.

Leslie loved his family deeply and made friends wherever he went. His passing will be felt in many hearts and the world is not as bright without him. His last years were happy ones for him thanks to the care and love given to him by the staff and residents at the Devonshire Care Centre.

Via Con Dios.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at Glenwood Funeral Home, 52356 RR 232 (south of Wye Road), Sherwood Park, AB.
