Michael J. Rush, at age 83, passed away peacefully at his winter home in Inverness, Florida, January 24, 2023, with his loving wife by his side.  He was born on July 22, 1939, in Rochester, NY to the late Richard and Marion Rush.  He is predeceased by his brother, Richard Rush.  He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Georgia Abbruscato Rush; daughter, Erin (Domminick) DeLucas; son, Timothy Rush; granddaughter, Danielle (Jake) Lippens; grandson, Nicholas (Michaela) DeLucas; great-grandson, Rowan DeLucas; brother-in-law, James (Sandra) Abbruscato; nephews, Jay (Lori) Abbruscato and Michael Abbruscato; many friends and acquaintances. Mike spent most of his school days in Churchville and enlisted in the US Army shortly after graduation from high school.  Serving between Korea and Viet Nam, he spent most of his tour of duty in Germany which he loved.  He was hired by Eastman Kodak shortly after his honorable discharge from the Army where he worked for 38 years.  Mike was proud of his military service and his lifelong career with Kodak. While he loved cars and motorcycles, Mike spent much of his leisure time-especially after retirement-on the golf course enjoying the sport to its fullest for twelve months a year. “Don’t grieve for me” Mike said, “I’ve lived a great Life.” Mike’s visitation will be held Friday, April 21st 4 PM – 7 PM at Vay-Schleich & Meeson 1075 Long Pond Road.  His service and interment will be held privately at the convenience of the family.  For more information and to sign his online guestbook, visit www.meesonfamily.com
