January 19, 1957 ~ September 11, 2020
Born in: Atlanta, GA
Resided in: Lilburn, GA
Earnest ‘Rusty’ Russell Kinney, of Lilburn, age 63, passed away Friday September 11, 2020 from heart failure. Rusty was born January 19, 1957 to William and Dorothy Kinney.
Rusty was a hard worker all his life and never liked to be idle. He didn’t know the meaning of ‘take it easy’ as he was still insistent on cutting his own grass even after three brain surgeries. He loved plants, any movie or show that was an old western, and collecting knicknacks.
Rusty was survived by his daughters and son-in-laws, Amber and Brian Fleming, Holly and Ganzo Castro, and Megan and Michael Holgate; grandchildren, Vanesa Castro, Ernie Castro, and Axel Holgate; brothers, Perry and Ricky Kinney; and sister, Charlene Patrick.
A celebration of life will be held at Wages and Son’s, in Lawrenceville, on Sunday September 27th at 3pm. We ask that anyone who would like to send flowers or plants send live ones so that his daughters can plant them in his memorial garden. Rusty was always so proud of the plants he grew and his daughters felt this was a great way to memorialize him. His daughters also ask anyone with photos of Rusty to bring a copy to add to a memory board.
Celebration of Life: September 27, 2020 3:00 pm - September 27, 2020 4:00 pm
