Seneca Falls: Floyd C. Bush III passed away on Friday, December 3, 2021 at Geneva General Hospital after a brief illness. Calling hours will be Saturday, December 11, from 12 Noon until 3 PM, with a funeral service immediately following at Doran Funeral Home, 4 East Bayard St., Seneca Falls.
Floyd was born July 20, 1953 in Waterloo, NY, the son of the late, Floyd and Mary (Stahlnecker) Bush Jr. He was a lifelong resident of Seneca Falls, attended Mynderse Academy high school, and worked for a variety of companies in the area over the years.
Floyd enjoyed hunting, fishing, and being outdoors whenever possible. Early on, his love for hunting and skill in the outdoors enabled him to share that expertise with others as a hunting guide in the family-owned and operated hunting business, Goosehaven. Back in the day his father, Floyd Jr, loved to nick-name everyone and so Floyd acquired the nickname "Windy". Many of those who were blessed with a nickname fondly still remember their name to this day. After the death of his father, Floyd and his siblings took over the management of Goosehaven. Over the years, Floyd made connections and life-long friendships with hunters from all over the Northeast and anybody that knew him, knew of his remarkable generosity to those around him. He was especially close with his Pennsylvania hunting family with whom he shared a very special bond.
As much as he loved the outdoors, his biggest love was always his friends and family, especially his grandchildren. Floyd is survived by his wife, Linda Bush; children, Tanya (Tim Pagano) Tyler, Rick (Kim Mueller) Bush, Cari (Kevin) Yates, Sean (Heather) Flahavan; grandchildren, Brandon DiCicco, Tyler Seymour, Madison Tyler, Mikayla Bush, Jenna Bush, Jayson Bush, Lyla Bush, Kayle Yates, Kendra Yates, Christian Yates, Owen Flahavan, Irelynn Flahavan; great-granddaughter, Callie DiCicco; brothers, Gary (Val Horsford) Bush and Jim (Nancy) Bush; sister, Sue (Rocky) DelPapa; best friend, Tony DiGloma; several nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. In addition to his parents, Floyd is predeceased by his sisters, Linda Dingman and Mary Jo Bush.
