Obituary

Raymond G Rush, 69, passed away unexpectedly on October 30, 2021, leaving behind a family that he loved dearly and for whom he would do anything. Dear to Cheryl, his wife of 33 years. Dad to Jessica (Brett) Samblanet, Johnathon (Cathleen) Rush and Jennifer (Matt) Rush. Pop to Magdalena, Finley, Kendall and Ryan. Baby brother of Ann, John, Robert, Richard. Ray was preceded in death by his beloved mother Anna, brother John, and his father John. 

Ray lived a colorful, full life. He made a living as a public servant, counseling thousands towards recovery from drugs and alcohol, and never forgot one of their faces. He loved to hike and will be missed by early morning hikers in French Park. He never knew a stranger, or a vegetable he didn't want to turn into a pie. He never turned down a parade or an ice cream cone. He will be missed by family and friends across the country. 

Public visitation at Spring Grove Funeral Homes (4389 Spring Grove Ave. Cincinnati, OH 45223) on Friday November 5th, 2021 at 5:00 pm with funeral service following at 7:00 pm. Masks are requested by the family. Placement at Spring Grove Cemetery on a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Ray's honor to the Children's Tumor Foundation (join.CTF.org/inmemoryofrayrush) or The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (appalachiantrail.org/).
