Wyatt Gregory Bush, 5 months, wished for baby boy of Russell and Jennifer Bush of Liberty, departed unexpectedly from their loving arms, into the arms of Jesus, Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.

Wyatt was born Jan. 17, 2019, at Liberty Hospital to Russell James and Jennifer Diane (Relph) Bush. Although Wyatt’s time here was short, he brought a lifetime worth of joy and memories to all of his family. His infectious smile and laughter will never be forgotten.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Jim Bush.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Mercy Hospital. They can be left at or mailed to Thurman Funeral Home, 507 E. Main St. – P.O. Box 190, Richmond, MO 64085.

Visitation and memorial services will begin with visitation at 4 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at Liberty United Methodist Church Rush Creek Campus.
