| April/May 1999

KENNETH BUSH, 82, Debary, Florida, passed away December 1, 1998 at a hospital in Orange City, Florida. He was the last of three brothers, all gas engine collectors, who all passed away in 1998.

Kenneth loved to restore old engines but they had to be at least fifty years old. He was very knowledgeable and had many phone calls and letters telling him 'what's wrong and how do I fix it?'

He belonged to Florida Flywheelers, Tri-State Tractor and Engine, Oblong Antique Tractor and Gas Engine clubs. He loved going to the engine meets and visiting with his gas engine buddies.

He was a World War II veteran.

Bush leaves behind his wife Lenore, after 58 years of marriage; a son, Mark; a sister, Mary Hawkins; a granddaughter, Krystle; and many engine collector friends. 

Submitted by his wife, Lenore.
