LEW BUSH ~ Former Charger and 92127 Resident Passes
Posted on January 24, 2012
A Tribute to Lew Bush
by DANI BUSH
To most, Lew Bush was known as an NFL player, but he was so much more than that to the ones that loved him most. He was a loving father, husband and friend, and he will always be our hero. We are so thankful for every memory and every moment we spent together and we will treasure those moments forever.
I can remember when I was five, walking and holding hands with Dad and realizing how big of a guy he was. He loved to talk and would always tell me, “If you could dream it, you could achieve it.” Sometimes I felt he was dreaming for me – like the time he wanted me to play volleyball and basketball and softball or pretty much any other sport that exists! He would get so excited when we would talk about what college I wanted to go to or what I wanted to be when I grew up. I know that whatever I planned on doing, he would always have my back. He wanted me to do whatever would make me happy in the long run. I always remember our date nights. Every Tuesday we would see a movie. Because of him I have a strong love of music. He was always that guy that was driving around with the music so loud, the base would shake the car. I obviously acquired my love and knowledge of football from him. I attended a lot of the games he played in and when he began coaching at Westview High School, I went to a lot of practices. There has never been, and never will be, a man quite like him – intelligent, hardworking, entertaining and funny. He was one of a kind and no matter what, I will always love him.

If you’re a longtime Charger fan, you may know that face. As a local resident, you may have even seen it around the neighborhood. Lew Bush, former Charger linebacker, died Thursday, December 8th, just six days after his 42nd birthday.
Bush played for the Chargers from 1993-1999, including Superbowl XXIX, then played defense with the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 2002, he retired from the NFL and settled in 4S Ranch. He continued to share his love of football as a commentator on KIOZ radio and coaching football at Westview High School.
It is clear from the outpouring of support on online memorials that Lew Bush was much beloved. Heartfelt messages from Washington State, Kansas City, and from friends and family here in our community paint a picture of a man who was good-natured, kind, and down-to-earth. Lew’s daughter, Dani, a student at Del Norte High, shared her personal tribute here. [/box_dark]
