  1. I’m wondering whether this Rusty Sutton was the same one I knew in grade school (6th grade) in Pueblo, in years 1952-53. The age is right. Along with Thomas “Bus” Pritchard, the three of us were inseparable, roaming the country around Pueblo on our bikes. If so, RIP Rusty, you were a great friend.

  2. I was sad to hear that Rusty has gone, but I know he is still on that mountain with Nancy and now in better health. I will miss you, my friend.

  3. Vickie: I was so sorry to read of Rusty’s passing. Having just lost my dad a couple of months ago, I appreciate your loss. Rusty and I were cousins (our moms were sisters) and I’m sorry to say I haven’t seen you for many many years. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
