William Bush Jr. ’42

Published in May 15, 2002, issue

Bill died Dec. 25, 2001, in Sanford, Fla., of a heart attack. He retired as Seminole County engineer several years ago. A wonderful man of many talents, Bill will always be remembered fondly by his family and friends for his artistic gifts. His whimsical cartoons were published not only in the Princeton Tiger, but also in The New Yorker.

Coming to Princeton from Westtown School, Bill majored in mechanical engineering and was a member of Quadrangle Club. During the war he was an aviation volunteer specialist in the Navy. Remaining in the naval reserve after the war, he retired as lieutenant commander. After working for the DuPont Co. in Philadelphia for several years, he moved to Sanford and was a commercial vegetable grower before becoming county engineer. He also operated an engineering partnership. Bill was civic-minded and a member of many organizations.

Predeceased by his wife, Bethy, Bill is survived by his daughter, Molly, his son, Brad, and by his three grandsons, to all of whom the class extends its profound sympathies.
