Rusty was born on March 12, 1949, in Ada, Okla. He was retired and a proud, wounded Vietnam Vet who spent his days at home in the country in Rose Hill, Kan. He was a retired machinist from Boeing. Rusty was an avid outdoorsman who loved to spend his days hunting, fishing, and enjoying nature. He loved dogs, animals, movies, never met a stranger, and always enjoyed a good laugh. He was a family man, first and foremost. He loved his wife, children and extended family to no end. But above all else, he loved his grandchildren and, in return, they adored him beyond words.
Rusty had a love for life and a desire to help anyone, without question, at any given moment. He loved the Lord with all his heart. God gained a beautiful angel and proud warrior in Heaven.
