So sorry to see this. I was just remembering a few days ago some good times Rusty and I had fishing together and just messing around until I moved to Texas in 1975. What a loss for all who knew and loved him.

Just read of Rusty's passing and want the family that I will be keeping you in prayer during the days ahead. God says that He will never leave us, and He is true to His Word. Rest in His Love.

I am So very sorry and am praying for the family. I have known him basically my whole life growing up at the Steelton congregation, living just a block away and graduating with him. Cheryl was a very close friend.
