    It is with a heavy heart that I write this.

    Being the youngest of 5 in a tight knit family, I find losing siblings is harder than I ever imagined.

    Rusty was always the easy-going, happy-go-lucky one. Always had a joke to make you laugh. He never had an enemy loved by everyone he encountered.

    He enjoyed being outside and spending time with his family. He was one to never miss a family get together.

    He excelled at everything he did from honor roll to his senior prom. I can remember when he won the prom grand prize his senior year of high school, he got the use of a new car from Johnny Crews Ford, a beautiful dress for his date (Diane Ranger), his tux, and dinner out after. He started his own lawn business while in high school and purchased a brand-new Vega before he graduated to take with him to Tallahassee.

    He graduated from FSU, as brother at Alpha Delta Phi. He was the kind of brother every girl could only dream of having.

    I can still hear him say “Hey Chris”

    Gone way too soon!! I find peace knowing he is with Brenda, Mom and Dad.

    I feel blessed being your neighbor for a year, you were very welcoming and taught us some important facts about Florida living. Our Sheehy Pizza nights are not going to be the same, your bright smile will be missed greatly. Rest in peace dear Rodger.
