Loss of Delaware Fire Service Leader
Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Mike graduated from Salesianum High School in 1966 then went on to get his college degree from Goldey-Beacom College in Pike Creek.  Later he proudly served our country in the Marines from 1968-1970 in the Western Pacific in Vietnam. 

Mike was an instructor with the Delaware State Fire School, a Past President of the Delaware State Fire Chiefs Association.  He was a member of the Wilmington Manor Fire Department where he held the offices of President and Deputy Chief Emeritus.  He’s was also a life member of the Christiana Fire Department where he has served on their Board of Directors.  Mike also was an honorary member of Citizens’ Hose, Cranston Heights, Delaware City, Five Points, Hockessin, Mill Creek, and Port Penn Fire Companies.  In addition to the Delaware companies, Mike was made an honorary member in several other departments in the Tri-State area.  

Mike was also named Delaware Volunteer Fireman of the year at the annual DVFA conference in 2013.

Some fire company banquets just won't be the same without MC Mike Rush and his off the wall jokes.  

Odessa Fire Company, it's Officers & Members, wish the best to Mike's Family during this difficult time.
