Former Charger Bush dies at age 42
Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Lew Bush has died of a heart attack, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. He was 42.
Bush was a member of the 1994 Chargers team, the only squad in franchise history to reach the Super Bowl.
Sadly, tragedy has befallen the '94 Chargers squad many times, as Bush is the seventh member of that team to die at a young age.
Defensive lineman Shawn Lee died in February at age 44 due to cardiac arrest.</p>
Others on that Chargers team include linebacker David Griggs, who died in a car crash at age 28 in 1995; Rodney Culver, who died in 1996 in a plane crash at age 26; linebacker Doug Miller, who was 28 when he was killed by lightning in 1998; Curtis Whitley, who died of a drug overdose in 2008 and defensive lineman Chris Mims, who died of an enlarged heart at age 38 in 2008., who was 44 when he passed away Feb. 26 of cardiac arrest (after suffering for years from diabetes).
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Bush family.
