Mr. Bush was born January 23, 1941 in Columbus Georgia to the late Anderson and Mildred Carroll Bush. He graduated from Jordan Vocational High School in 1959, married his high school sweetheart Bettie Sue Snell in 1962 and graduated from Auburn University in 1967. Leroy never met a stranger and was a friend to all he came in contact with throughout his life. He was a loving husband for 55 years, a dedicated father to his two sons, and to him most importantly the greatest "Poppy" in the world to four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Known to many simply as Mr. Leroy, he was generous to a fault and would do anything to help a friend. Leroy will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Survivors include his wife, Bettie Sue Snell Bush; two sons: J. David Bush (Michelle) and Christopher Paul Bush (Christy); four grandchildren: Steven Allen Bush, Sarah Katherine Bush Brownfield (Quinton), Carter Kyle Bush and Callie Jane Bush; two great grandchildren: Grayson Ky Bush and Kyson Tyler Brownfield; mother-in-law, Eunice Snell; brother-in-law, Cecil L. Snell (Judy); other extended family and friends.
