Louis Wash Jr., 81, widower of Minta Josephine Wash, passed away Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019. He was born on Jan. 29, 1938 to the late Louis G. and Mary Blythe Wash Sr. in Georgetown. An Air Force veteran, Louis was very proud of his country as well as the state of Kentucky. Raised on the farm in which he passed, Louis grew up hunting and fishing. He would read books telling of the history of Kentucky and ancestry of how and when his family arrived in this great state. Yes, Louis was so very proud of his home. He loved to feed the birds and could identify each of them. Retired from Hoover Ball Bearing, he was a member of Midway Baptist Church, a volunteer with the Midway Fire Department, and drove the Red Cross bus. He delivered Meals on Wheels, church bulletins to those who could not attend, a cake to the staff at Wesbanco, formally United Bank, weekly and a loaf of bread to his barber when he got his haircut every three weeks. Louis was a good man, a kind man, simple in his needs and processions, strong of mind and faith. He never met a stranger and impacted everyone he interacted with. Louis is survived by his sons, Clifton (Chong) Wash, Scott (Melissa) Wash and Jerald (Patty) Wash; grandchildren, John (Allyson) Wash, Jennifer (Tommy) Liane Perry, Elizabeth Dawn Wash, Natalie (Brent) Gail Brooke Burrus, Dawn (Casey) Brown and Chris Wash; great-grandchildren, Jacob, Madyson, Morgan, Hayleigh Brooke, Olivia Paige, Ethan Andrew, Sierra Elizabeth, MaKenzie Grace, Emilynn Jade, Levi Warren, Haley Elizabeth, Ryan Elden and Lensey Dawn; and a great-great-grandchild, Ellie Grace. Services were held Thursday, Jan. 2, at Clark Funeral Home, Rose Hill, Versailles, with Pastor Evan Rowe officiating. Burial followed in Midway Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Midway Baptist Church, Wounded Worriers or the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
