James C. Bush Jr. was released from this mortal life on March 15, 2019 after a 6 year battle with cancer. Jim was born to James Clifford Bush and Emma Lucile Bradley on February 14, 1940. He spent his youth in Malad, Idaho, graduated from Logan High School and attended Utah State University.

Jim married Sandra Hunsaker on November 1, 1967 in the Salt Lake Temple. To this union, six children were born: Julia (Randy), J.C. (Tami), Rebecca, Bradley (Jessica), Matthew (Lauren), and Michael (Heather). Eighteen grandchildren call him Grandpa.

Professionally, Jim worked as a manufacturing engineer. Personally, he was an avid outdoorsman with a special love for canoeing, white-water rafting, camping and trail riding on ATV’s. He was also a skilled ballroom dancer and soccer coach and he enjoyed bucket-list trips with his friends.
