Rusty grew up in Plattsburgh, NY and then moved to Syracuse, NY. When he was 19years old, he took a job working for Crane-Hogan Structural Systems where he retired just last year. Rusty loved the outdoors, gardening and driving his 1954 Farmall Tractor around his property. He also loved fishing, snowmobiling at his camp up north, and was an avid Nascar fan and loved watching Sunday Football. Most of all, Rusty loved his family. He built many things, so that they could all be together and enjoy.

His family will receive friends Monday 4-8pm at the funeral home (570 Kings Hwy S.) Interment will be held Tuesday at 11:00am at St. Patrick's Cemetery; a celebration of life will follow. Memorials may be directed to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation 5526 West 13400 South, #510, Herriman, UT 84096. To share a memory or send the family a condolence, please visit
