We will miss Rusty's visits to check on his Mothers home. He was always smiling and helpful in any way. I'm glad his struggle has ended and he has found peace. He leaves a space in our lives that can't be filled.

I worked at Houston Chemical/PPG/PDGlycol with Rusty back in the day, and although I have lost contact with him in recent years, I will always remember his warm wide smile, his quiet demeanor, and his talent for making friends with everybody. Rusty was a heck-of-a-nice guy and a great co-worker, he had a good heart and a firm grip on everything around him. May God welcome him, and may Rusty be enveloped in the eternal light of Our Savior Jesus Christ forever and ever, Amen.

Just found out that Russell is deceased. His mother and mine were good friends and I remember lots of happy times playing at his family home. He was a special person as a child and I have fond memories of him when we were children. May God bless you all . So very sorry for your loss.
