Obituaries » James Wilson Bush

James Wilson Bush, 99, formerly of Warrenton, died peacefully on Sunday, October 28, 2018, in Denver Colorado. Mr. Bush also previously lived in Pittsburgh and New Canaan, Conn.

He was born June 21, 1919, in Pittsburgh.

Mr. Bush earned a bachelor’s degree in ceramic engineering from Penn State University in 1944. At Penn State he was an accomplished gymnast in the still rings and on the pommel horse. His graduate business education was from University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business, the University of Cincinnati and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He had a lengthy career in management with an emphasis on marketing. He retired from United States Steel Corp. in Pittsburgh. Mr. Bush enjoyed the performing arts, was a skilled fly fisherman and an avid archer. He enjoyed his life, family and many friends. He attributed his longevity to exercising daily — even at 99 — and being medically knowledgeable regarding all aspects of his health.

He is survived by his son, James W. Bush II; his daughters, Jennifer Bush, Cynthia Bush, Melissa Gardner (Thomas) and Michele Mitchell; four grandchildren, Erin Devine, Eamon (Mallory) Devine, Emma Devine, Benjamin Jass, and a great-grandchild, Tessa Jayne.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Marcella Kubelick Bush.

A Requiem Mass will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at Our Lady of Grace Church, 310 Kane Boulevard, Pittsburgh. There will be a private burial service at Queen of Heaven Cemetery following the church service.

Condolences may be sent to 8639 Springs Road, Warrenton, Va. 20186.
