Tennessee Tech University suddenly lost one of the most respected members of the university community, Frank E. Bush, on December 29, 2008. Frank served as the Assistant Director and Manager of Systems Support at TTU and was an integral and vital part of the Information Technology Services. Frank's leadership and solid professionalism has been a guiding light at TTU for many years and will be sorely missed. He received his BS Degree in Business Management at Tennessee Tech University in 1970. His career at TTU spanned more than 36 years.

In addition to his contributions to TTU, he was an active member of St. Thomas Aquinas Church since 1975 and led the music ministry there with his wife until 2000. In addition he organized and led the Search program, an inter-faith retreat for students from Tennessee Tech University. He had been actively involved in music ministry for the past seven years at St. Alphonsus Catholic Community in Crossville.

Since 1998, he served as Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop 156 of St. Michael's Episcopal Church. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 15 and mentored many young men to the same accomplishment over his fifteen years as a devoted and respected leader.

His immediate family includes his wife of 29 years, Sheila Beazley Bush of Cookeville; a son, Stephen Wyatt Bush of Cookeville; two daughters and a son-in-law, Catherine Bush and James Rushing of Fayetteville, N.C., and Sarah Elizabeth Bush of Cookeville.

Memorial donations may be made to the TTU Eagle Scout Scholarship Fund.

Friends and colleagues can share stories and memories of Frank to honor the passing of a beloved father, husband, mentor, and friend at HOOPER-HUDDLESTON & HORNER FUNERAL HOME
