If you knew Rusty you knew his “dance of the butter bean “, how he lived his life by the 6 P’s, how he had to hear his blue Grass on Sunday’s, if you asked him what he had been up to he’d tell you “6 foot 2, eye of blue” and he had a story for everything and if he didn’t he’d make one up. He will be missed greatly by his family and those that knew him. There will be a celebration of life but the date is to be announced.
