If this is Rusty Price I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I had heard he was dealing with some depression and other challenges which surprised me at the time.

Yea Lee I was wondering if this was Rusty also. Don't remember any other Prices. Rusty was a great guy and very smart as I recall. If this is him I am sadden to hear of his passing.

Rusty grew up down the street from Barbara and I and we played together almost every afternoon when we were little. He was sweet, funny and the brightest kid I ever knew. He was ill for a long time and eventually his sister said it got the best of him. We were heartbroken when he passed away last year.

I remember Rusty fondly, especially from elementary school. I lived down the street from him. In 5th grade we each got "horned toads" from Ross Allen's Reptile Institute and brought them home. I remember scarring Sandra and Barbara Reynolds with them for a while. Rusty would keep them 1 week and I would keep them the other week until they got away at my house. I suspect my Mom being terrified of them let them go. I like to think they survived and multiplied throughout Pinewood Street and Peachtree Street. He was a nice person and I am deeply sorry to find out that he has passed on. Howard Schmerin

I got to know Rusty in Ms. Woolverton's English class. We sat in the back and always made comments about how beautiful she was! In her class, we had to dissect the song "Along Comes Mary", by The Association, and perform a skit using the lyrics. I was so naive. I could have sworn this song was about a sweet girl named Mary. But, in his cool, very "hip" way, Rusty explained what the song was really about. Rusty wasn't your typical normal 'High Schooler'. He was quite witty and had a dry sense of humor. I enjoyed my brief encounter with Rusty and have not and will not ever forget the eye-opening fun times we had.
