Mr. John Terry Rash, 93, of Grand Saline, passed away August 22, 2020, in Tyler. He was born January 25, 1927, in Colfax, to John Wesley & Mary Argin Rusk Rash. He spent his early years in Colfax and graduated from Van High School, Class of 1944. He served in the US Navy during WWII as a butcher on the USS Savo Island aircraft carrier. After he returned from his military service, he worked for Pure Oil Company. He moved to Grand Saline over 60 years ago, where he was a member of the First United Methodist Church. John was a member of the Pairs & Spares Sunday School Class and enjoyed volunteering with the Breaking Bread Food Pantry at the church. He served on the Grand Saline ISD School Board from 1977-1984. After working for Pure Oil Company, John partnered with Bill Bass at a filling station in Grand Saline. John came to work at Bartley Funeral Home in 1960, and then he and his brother-in-law opened Rash & Ritchie Feed Store in 1968. He owned and operated the feed store until 1999, when he retired after 31 years in the business. John Terry then came back to work at Bartley Funeral Home and retired in 2012.

John Terry was an amazing and kind man. Always smiling and positive. So glad to know him from my parents' generation in Colfax. He had a great, long life.

What a great man of God & community! Everyone that knew him, loved him. His soul was a happy one & he shared it freely with all he came in contact with. I've never known a single person who touched as many lives as he did. If you ever had the pleasure to visit with him, you always came away with a smile on your face & feeling a little more blessed. Praying for family & friends. This man will be truly missed.
