James Busch
October 2, 1939 - October 19, 1996

For James (Jim) Busch, his days at LHS were some of the best days of his life. He was a loyal Berries fan - whatever the sport, but we remember him particularly attending football and basketball games. He studied shop at LHS and was known to be an excellent worker in the skilled trades. Jim suffered a disabling illness in 1964.

He lived the rest of his life with his parents in Fort Branch, Indiana, where his activities were limited to watching television and taking walks.

He passed away October 19, 1996. We remember his warm smile and caring attitude.
