We bought our first furniture from Rusty's dad in 1964 when the store was located in the building on Hazelwood Drive that was previously the theater. "Griff" and Fran were always so friendly and helpful, and Rusty continued that same type of service to customers through the years. Smyrna has lost another son and bright smile, much too soon. We send our thoughts and prayers to you, Kathy, and to all the family. Bill and Patsy Brown

Dear Kathy and Family: Emily and I are so sorry about the unexpected passing of your brother, Rusty. Please know we are thinking of you and have you in our thoughts and prayers. I did not know your brother, but I surely know his sister and can just imagine how proud he was of you and Dave and your many accomplishments. You and Dave represent all the qualities that are so admired: kindness, generosity, humility, a love of life, and incredible people skills. I would have loved to have seen Rusty in his Santa suit at the Titans Stadium in Nashville. I’m sure you loved it and so did thousands of other Titans fans. God bless, dear friends. Stay safe. Your friends always, Russ and Emily Potts

Godspeed Rusty....
William Taylor left a message on May 6, 2020:
Rusty was my bus driver when I was a little boy, he was always very kind to me and my brothers. We were extremely fond of him, he would let us have paper wad fights on the bus as long as we cleaned up after ourselves. My parents bought a lot of furniture from Regal back in the day, Rusty would always recognize us from when we were little. So very sad to hear of his passing but he is standing in glory now.

Rusty was one in a million...no, a trillion. His laughter and personality brought happiness to all who knew and loved him. I feel privileged that his sister, Kathy, shared her brother with me. I enjoyed many belly laughs and great conversations. Rest in peace, Rusty. You will be so missed, and I know you will make the brightest star yet in the universe.
