The death of Bill Bushby
Mr. William Bushby, a life member of the South Australian Amateur Swimming Association, and instructor at the City Baths during the recent learn-to-swim campaign conducted by "The Advertiser", died suddenly yesterday at the age of 72.
Yesterday morning he left his home to go for a walk and apparently he was overcome by a heart seizure. He staggered to the verandah of the home of Mrs. A. Spurling, Halstead street, Prospect and collapsed in a chair. There Mrs. Spurling's daughter found him dead about 11.am. She immediately summoned Dr. G. R. West.
Mr. Bushby had been living in retirement with his wife at Avenue road, Prospect. He had been employed at the Islington work-shops for a number of years. As a young man he was a prominent footballer for Port Adelaide. During the past 25 years, however, Mr. Bushby had devoted all his spare time to swimming. He has left a widow and a grown-up family.
