SALEM – Raymond LeRoy Bush, formerly of Greenford, passed away peacefully the evening of June 20, in his residence at Copeland Oaks.

He was born on March 17, 1934, son of the late Henry Dewey and Mary (Archer) Bush.

He was a resident of the Greenford/Salem area all his life. He lived on Middletown Road in Greenford for 40 years in the home he built on part of the Bush family’s homestead. He was a graduate of Greenford High School in 1952 and Wittenberg University in 1956, where he majored in Music. He was an active member of his community, serving in teaching and leadership roles at the Greenford Lutheran Church, the Greenford Ruritans, and at his retirement community in Lakeland, Fla., where he and his wife, Betty Jean (Wolford) Bush, wintered for several years.

Raymond taught choral music at Poland Seminary High School and later at West Branch High School for 30 years.

He directed more than a dozen musical productions over this time, and was instrumental in the formation of West Branch High School’s popular show choir, “Young and Alive,” which successfully competed at the national level. He was consistently voted as one of the best-liked teachers by his students before retiring from teaching in 1987.

Raymond was also active in barbershop quartets, performing as a member of the Greenford Ruritones and later as part of the Salem Jubilee Chorus. He also directed various area church and adult choirs throughout his career.
