Robert Lindsay Brash passed away after a short illness at the Southeast Georgia Health System In Brunswick, GA on Saturday, June 29, 2019. He was doing what he loved - vacationing with family at St. Simon's Island.
Robert "Bob" was born in Oak Hill on September 16, 1945, son of the late Thomas Kay and Lillian Lindsay Brash. He was also preceded by his brother, Thomas Kay Brash and sister, Jean Kay Lavender Brash.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving devoted wife, Sadie Alexander Brash - who adored him. They celebrated their 47th Anniversary on June 24. He is also survived by his brother, William Lee Brash; and nephews, David Lee and William Brent Brash. He also had two great nephews and a niece.
He was a member of Oak Hill Baptist Church for many years. Bob served his country in the Army National Guard. A 1964 graduate of Mount Hope High School, Bob went on to graduate from WV Institute of Technology (WVU Tech), after which he was a teacher in the Fayette County School System for 33 years - leaving his legacy at Midland Trail High School. He cherished all of the memories of students and staff. When he decided to retire in 2004, he said, "It is hard to quit a good job that he loved". He was a member of the Oak Hill Fire Department serving for 50 years, having last served as a Lieutenant. The snow was never too deep and the storms were never too violent, the fires too swifts or the wrecks too severe to answer the call to others in need.
Bob was a Corvette enthusiast and owned a 34 Ford which he enjoyed driving after retirement. He had a large circle of friends from firemen, state policeman, and car enthusiasts.
Bob and his wife enjoyed traveling north, south, east, and west with special friends, Gary and Karin McGraw, always learning many things about our great country. His three fur babies Isabelle, Lilly and Little Man will miss him sorely.
Sadie would like to express her sincere appreciation to the following physicians for the care they provided Bob, Dr. Herbert Oye of WV Vascular, Dr. Michael Douvas and Dr. Brendan Bowen of UVA and Dr. Donald Newell, Jr. of Access Health.
