May 17, 2022

John A. Vanden Bush, 53, passed away peacefully at his home Tuesday, May 17, 2022, due to cancer.  He was born July 31, 1968, to Robert and Susan (Allen) Vanden Bush.  John fought so hard to remain with his beloved wife, Tracy, daughter, Emily and family.

After graduating from Denmark High School, he attended NWTC, graduating the wood technics program and completing his carpentry apprenticeship.  To say John was passionate about carpentry was an understatement.  He was a Carpenter Superintendent at Immel Construction where he had been employed for over 33 years.  John built his own home and his cabin, and even had a carpentry tattoo.

John enjoyed spending time at his cabin, hunting, riding his Harley Davidson, working on antique tractors, shooting trap and snowmobiling.  He would never say no to someone in need and made the most of every moment.

He will be missed by his wife, Tracy Vanden Bush; a daughter, Emily Vanden Bush; a step-daughter, Samantha Binsfeld; his parents, Robert and Susan Vanden Bush; his father-in-law, John Luser; his siblings, Randy (Jennifer) Vanden Bush, Christine (Bruce) Christensen, Tony (Lori) Vanden Bush; a brother-in-law, Terre (Candace) Luser; nephews and nieces, Austin and Wyatt Vanden Bush, Connar and Heather Christensen, Hailey, Grant (godson), and Ashlyn Vanden Bush; a great-niece, Jordan Christensen; a godson, Logan Rogers; aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Maria Luser and two nieces, Julia Christensen (goddaughter) and Myah Vanden Bush.
