Jonathan Wesley Brush

August 17, 1952 — June 26, 2023

Jonathan Wesley Brush, a man of faith, love, and laughter, was born on August 17, 1952, in Columbus, GA. He was called home by the Lord on June 26, 2023, in Six Mile, SC. Jonathan's life was a testament to his unwavering faith and his deep love for his family, friends, and community.
Jonathan was a beacon of light in the lives of his beloved wife, Kim Cravens Brush, his cherished children, Amy, Stephanie, Ashley, Kolbey, and Hayes, his adored siblings, Norman, Rhonda, Gordon, Elizabeth, Phyliss, Benjamin, and Melissa, and his treasured grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His parents, Norman and Nell Brush, predeceased him, and we take comfort knowing that they have welcomed him into the heavenly kingdom.
Jonathan's pursuit of knowledge led him to Hobe Sound Bible College, where he earned a BA degree in Bible in 1975. His passion for education didn't stop there. He went on to obtain master’s degrees in education and education Administration from Bob Jones University in 1982 and 1983. His dedication to learning and his faith was a guiding light throughout his life.
After a few years in education, Jonathan returned to his construction roots and obtained his general contractor's license. He owned his own contracting businesses, Carne and Brush Builders and Brush Builders, and started up the concrete division for McGee Brothers in Greer. His work was not just a job but a testament to his character – sturdy, reliable, and built to last.
Jonathan was a man who loved the simple pleasures in life. He found peace and joy in the beauty of nature, whether it was watching the sunrise over the ocean with a cup of coffee in hand or enjoying a sunset boat ride on Lake Keowee with his family. His new home on the lake was a testament to his love for the water and the tranquility it brought him.
People were naturally drawn to Jonathan. His quick wit and sarcasm were legendary, and he always had a way of making everyone feel welcome and loved. As the old saying goes, "A Day without laughter is a day wasted," and Jonathan made sure no day was wasted.
Music was another of Jonathan's passions. He was an excellent trombonist and a member of the BJU Trombone Choir during his college years. He continued to play in the church orchestra in recent years, and his beautiful voice was often heard singing the old hymns and Gaither standards. His music was a gift he shared freely, touching the hearts of all who heard him.
In the words of the great theologian, John Wesley, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
Jonathan Wesley Brush was a man of faith, filled with love, and always ready with a laugh. He was a pillar of his community, a devoted family man, and a steadfast friend. His legacy will live on in the hearts and memories of all who knew him. As we say our earthly goodbyes, we take comfort in knowing that he is now singing with the angels, his voice joining the heavenly choir. His life was a song of faith, love, and laughter, and that melody will echo in our hearts forever
