With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our father Al Bush on August 11th, 2014.

He was also known as one of the paper boys in Kamloops, who walked the streets with his dog “Sadie” delivering papers. He was surrounded by his family and extended family. He passed after a courageous battle with cancer.

Al is survived by his wife, June, of 58 years,  Albert Jr., {Tanya}, daughter {Patricia}, daughter Helen, Charlie {Cheryl}, Sig {Nicole}, grandchildren, Tasha {Adam}, Brandon, Marshall, Ryan, Sara, Liam, Evan, Kyle, great grandchildren, Cameron and Kieren, sisters Joyce and Betty.

Al was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. When he was 12 years old he moved to Vancouver with his uncle Charlie Whiteman. He later went into the forest industry, engineering, road building etc.

His greatest love was fishing and camping with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed gardening cooking and many other interests. For many years he quietly helped many people along the way and especially young people.

The family would like to thank our dearest friends the Clare family for their support.

We would also like to thank the Community for touching our fathers heart with their kindness and generosity.
