Charles D. Roush
December 28, 1925 ‒ January 06, 2021
Charles D. Roush, age 95 of Ashley, OH, passed away Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at his home in Ashley. He was born December 28, 1925 in Marengo, OH to the late Harry and Blanche (McNickle) Roush.
Left to cherish Charles’ memory are his loving wife of 74 years, Rosabelle (Zent) Roush; sons: Dan Roush, Tim (April) Roush, and Stephen (Anna) Roush; daughters: Janice (Larry) Runkle, Joyce (Michael) Condit, and Michelle (Randy) Runyon; 14 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and several other relatives and friends.
Charles was a carpenter and builder by trade. He was Associate Pastor for 7 years at Full Gospel Fellowship Church Ashley Ohio, followed by 7 more years as Senior Pastor. He preached at many different churches as guest speaker and served well over 20 years teaching Sunday school. He was a member of the Westfield Community Church in Westfield Ohio, where he served as assistant Pastor. Charles lived for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was a prayer warrior. He taught us how to pray. He and his wife enjoyed singing together in church. Charles enjoyed working with his hands; anything with a hammer and some nails. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, board games, Buckeye football, and attending grandchildren’s events, but most of all spending fun times with his family. Charles was the most strong, loving, devoted husband and father. A very giving man who would help anyone that he could. His great BIG smile would light up any room. His contagious laughter would make all around him enjoy the moment. We will miss him so very much, but are so thankful for all the years that God has blessed our lives with our DAD and HUSBAND.
In addition to his parents, Charles was preceded in death by his son, Ken Roush; and brothers: Harold and Gene Roush.
