My big brother has always been my hero and I will miss him terribly. His spirit will always be with me forever! Love to my niece Jade and sister in law Goldie.

I was so saddened to hear the news of Rusty’s passing that I could hardly control my emotions. I lost the chance to visit and share wonderful times again. All my fault expecting we all will live forever. Such a joy to be around a man who is so hard working, ethical, fun loving and humorous, you couldn’t help but be pleased to be in his presence. I enjoyed being a co-worker, fellow golfer and friend.
Of his many wonderful and unique characteristics, I found his desire to nickname surprising. I never knew my nickname he had bestowed upon me. Rusty would create them mostly unbeknownst to the subject, or share with that person. Like the impressionist artist drawing a caricature he did this verbally so that your mind’s eye would capture it as if you are looking at a drawing. You could not help but be amused in this harmless and none offensive fun. It was playful for himself (I am sure) and those he shared with. There are a few I recall and it will always bring a smile and appreciation for his cleverness.
