On Tuesday, December 27, 2016, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather passed away doing what he loves—driving his truck. Henry Carroll Rush, 72, was born on February 10, 1944, to the late Henry Harrison Rush and Jeanette Floyd Rush, of Brookneal. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Joyce Gann Rush; his daughters and their husbands: Anne and Greg Williams, Mary and Steve Bailey, and Alice and Ed Watson; his 5 grandchildren (who called him Paca), Elizabeth “Libbie” Doss and her husband Cord, Nikki and Aaron Bailey, Edison and Jacob Watson and his fiancé Morgan Alvis; and his great-grandson, Laettner Rush Doss, all residents of Rustburg. Carroll was a devout Christian who spent every Sunday in the church pew. He put family first but you could become his family upon meeting him. He retired from Babcock & Wilcox and was self-employed. The family wishes to thank the first responders and the care they showed. The family will receive friends from 3 to 5 p.m., Sunday, January 1, 2017, at Rustburg United Methodist Church, 664 Village Hwy, Rustburg.
