Michael Scott Rushing

4 February, 19636 December, 2019

Michael Scott Rushing, 56, passed away on December 6th, 2019 at his home in Rockdale, Texas after battling a lifetime of Type 1 Diabetes.

Michael was born on February 4, 1963 in Bangor, Maine. Being an Air Force brat, he traveled all over the country with his parents and siblings. He later ended up in Texas at the age of two years old. Michael's childhood was about being in and out of hospitals due to being a diabetic.

Michael was such a caring person and had a special love for dogs. He had an amazing talent for making stained glass. Another passion of Michael's was baking, in which his specialty was making wonderful pies.

Michael was an employee for the State Legislature Council in the print shop. He worked there for almost twenty-five years where he met a lot of co-workers who became his work family and were always looking out for him.

He is survived by his siblings, three brothers, Robert; David and wife, Kay; Steven and wife, Pam; a sister, Nancy and Jim. Nephews, Dustin Rushing and wife Yvonne; Ryan Greenes; Bonner Bankston and Amelia; and nieces, Shayna Carr and Dana Campion and husband James.

Michael has donated his body to research, believing that in some way he will have a part in helping to find a cure for diabetes. "You will always be in our heart and prayers."

A Memorial Service will be held at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 1200 S. Bagdad Rd., Leander, Texas 78641 at 11:00 A.M. on Thursday, December 12, 2019.

I had the privilege getting to know Mike and working with him back in 2006. Mike was always willing help others in need in the workplace, I'm sure that carried over in his personal life. He was just a simple, good hearted guy and I have always enjoyed his company. Mike you will be missed and thought of often.

Memory Eternal,

Mike worked w/my husband Gilbert almost 20 years, my husband just retired and they both still called each other often. Mike always baked me a pecan pie for the holidays. I used to send him my home made enchiladas for his lunch. He visited our home a few times, so I always made sure I made him Mexican food during his visits to our home. Both my husband and I will miss him mucho. May he rest in peace. His family are in our prayers.

I got to work with Mike. His big laugh was always a welcome respite from even the most tedious of tasks. He a had a big heart to match his broad smile, and he will be missed.

Mike and I were coworkers. He was dedicated to performing the job, no matter how large or small the task. Mike would hear about something that needed to be done, and he would do it. The team knew they could count on him no matter what and I observed a fair amount of reliance upon him to "get 'er done!" Because we knew he would and he did. I will miss you, Mike, and I will remember you.

Mike was my friend for 48 years. You could not ask for a better friend. He was a third son for my mom and spent countless Christmas holidays with us. We had countless adventures from riding his v65 magna to San Antonio and bike (mike on back) just to try it out to taking his 260 z to college station so I could visit my girlfriend. He was always up for an adventure. My boys are going to miss their uncle Mike. Peace to you my friend. Here’s a happy Mike from one of those Christmas holidays with his gift.
