Harold Edison Rush
Harold Edison Rush was guided into Heaven by his Angels Sept. 25, 2009. He was surrounded by the love of his earthly family as his Heavenly family took him through the Golden Gates.
Born July 21, 1944, in Dun Glen, OH, he was the youngest of 10 children of Joseph and Ethel (Darrah) Rush. He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Jessie; one brother, Cecil; a sister-in-law, Aggie and brothers-in-law, Robert, Cal, Bob, Drew, Carl, Ted and Jack.
He is survived by the love of his life and best friend, Susan Kay (Milhoan) Rush whom he married Nov. 24, 1975 and renewed those vows Aug. 29, 2009. Harold is also survived by his children, Harold N. Rush and Melinda Rush, both of Kenton, John (Carla) Rush of Barnesville, Tonya (Bo) Morris of Alabama, Karla (Doug) Shields of Pennsylvania and Darlene (Ed) Prince of Carrollton; grandchildren, Harold N.

He had many friends he cared for very much and would help anyway that he could; as they would he. He believed family was everything and he had a love for them that could never be described in words. His patience was unbelievable nothing was ever a tragedy to him. He always could look beyond whatever was happening, knowing there would be a blessing to come. His love, generosity and patience shown and given to his children by him will always be remembered as they pass it on to their children. He loved and cared for so many that his life will never be forgotten but remembered in a special and caring way that everyone who had the chance to know him will be able to pass his memory on as a blessing to others.
Harold was blessed with wonderful health care provided by Dr. John T. Givens, Dr. Schmotzer, Morning Star and Hospice of Aultman. The care he received will never be forgotten and was greatly appreciated by his family.
Services were held Sept. 29 at Allmon-Dugger-Cotton Funeral Home with burial at Barnesville, OH, with Pastor Tony Crowe officiating.
