Russell “Rusty” Wayne Breeden went to be with the Lord on November 9, 2019. Rusty was born February 26,1967 in Lynchburg, Virginia to Russell M. and Betty Turner Breeden.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Russell and Betty; sister Delores Wells; maternal grandparents Ronald and Anna Turner; paternal grandparents Wesley and Nannie Mae Bruffy Breeden & Ruth and John Scott; mother-in-law Jean Eberhardt; and brother-in-law Scott Eberhardt.

He leaves to cherish his loving wife of 27-years, Lucy Eberhardt Breeden; children Tyler and Shelby Breeden, Jessica Aldous, Chris Falls and daughter-in-law Olya; grandchildren Caden, Hunter, Paisley, Pearce, and Hope; step-mother Nellie Breeden; sisters and brothers-in-law Judy and Jim Brower, Bonnie and Jerry Boyd, and Charlie Wells. Rusty had many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will miss him dearly.

Rusty was employed at Georgia-Pacific in Brookneal for over 20-years and leaves the many friends he made throughout his time there. He graduated from Brookville High School in 1985 and kept in touch with many of his classmates.

He loved baseball and attended many Mets, Braves and Hillcats games with his Dad and his children. He was a big NASCAR fan and enjoyed hunting when he had the chance. He liked to shoot pool with his “clubhouse cronies” and “shoot the breeze” with best friends Allison and Brently Culp. The Culps spent many vacations with the Breeden’s.

More than anything, Rusty was dedicated to his family. From annual family vacations at Myrtle Beach or the monthly family gatherings to celebrate birthdays, holidays or just being together, he lived for those moments he got to share with those he held dearest. A man who epitomized honest, hard work and “not putting off ‘til tomorrow what can be done today,” his example will surely live on. Whether you knew him for a moment or a lifetime, it was inescapable that Rusty’s was a life filled with passion, joy, respect, faith, and love. His was truly a life well-lived.

A service celebrating Rusty's life will be conducted at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, November 14, 2019 at Heritage United Methodist Church with the Reverend Bob Michalides officiating. Interment will follow in Fort Hill Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 13. 2019 at Whitten Timberlake Chapel.

Brentley and I have so many memories. We will always remember our beach trips. You taught me how to find sharks teeth. You always had to go to one of the Pelicans baseball games. We would hang outside by the pool all day until it was time to go out for supper. We loved coming to your house and sitting outside around our imaginary fire pit. We also loved having you at our house and having cookouts numerous times on the deck. Most of all I remember the conversation you had with Brenna about college. That was so special to her. You always picked on me for checking my phone to see where Brenna was. And then with Braeden you would always tell me it would be ok when he drove me crazy. You loved my kids like they were your own. You and Brentley were the best of buds!! You both made the most creative names for each other. Most of all I was the one that was always between you two. You and I were two peas in a pod and loved mostly the same things. There are so many more things I could write about. Your brother/best friend and I will miss you so very much!! We will never forget you and will ALWAYS save you a spot in everything we do. We will continue on with Lucy and be the three musketeers. We will love you forever and see you again one day in heaven!! Love your BEST friends Allison and Brentley

I love and work with his wife Lucy. Rusty was always so kind and so much fun. I knew him best through Lucy at all the Century 21 Realtor functions. He was a great dancer. He loved his new grandchildren and was a great guy to assist Lucy in raising these little ones.
I know the Breeden family loves the Lord and Rusty is now walking with Jesus. This will give Peace that will help Lucy through this sadness.

Rusty was a character. We all have great memories of him which we've been sharing since his passing. The karate chop to the throat , the early morning breakfast w/ yogurt, "I'm back", him being Superman's kryptonite, and so much more. We will miss him.
Love the safety committee.
