If you would like to help the family, a GoFundMe Page was set up to help with expenses. The family will help set up a Scholarship in his name to keep his memory alive.

This is such a tragic incident. Bush was only at practice a few minutes before he collapsed. Staff tried to work on him with CPR and an AED, but Robert was not able to make it. Another case of young athletes collapsing is scary. It is becoming a norm.

May God Bless the Bush family.
