MADISON-Robert Shinn Bush, age 96, died peacefully on Monday, October 21, 2019 at the Badger Prairie Health Care Center. He was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico of parents Simeon Henry Bush and Anna Edna Bush. All of Bob's family pre-deceased him.

Bob grew up in Madison, WI, graduated from Wisconsin High and attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In 1942 Bob enlisted in the US Army and served his country as a medic, with distinction. He earned the Bronze Star, saving the lives of soldiers where he served in all European campaigns including the beaches at Normandy.
