Kent Rush 610 S Street was advised today of the death early this morning at his home in Bloomfield, of his father, Oliver P. Rush, 70 years old, after a short illness with complications.

Tentative funeral arrangements call for services at Bloomfield Monday with burial at Springville but the place and hour has not been decided. Oliver P. Rush was a native of Lawrence county and was born in Perry township to Mr. and Mrs. Noah Rush in 1864. He was united in marriage in young manhood to Miss Laura Hatfield of Greene county. She passed away in 1926.

Mr. Rush was engaged in farming in Perry township until 1916, when he moved to Bloomfield and he had since made his home there. Besides the son here he is survived by another son, Wayne of Bloomfield; two sisters, Mrs. Isabel Rainbolt, Lawrence County, and Mrs. Mary Rector, Atlanta, Nebraska; a brother D. B. Rush, Chanute, Kansas, and eight grandchildren. A brother John C. Rush of Perry township died last March.
