Russell C. “Rusty” Price, age 62 of Marengo, passed away unexpectedly at home Thursday morning October 4, 2018.
He was born in Columbus on June 14, 1956 to the late John Price, Jr and Dorothy (Mayes) Price. Rusty was a graduate of Northland High school, Class of 1974. Self-employed for many years as a service station dealer, he was an active member of the Central Ohio Gasoline Dealers Association.
A member of the Vineyard Church of Delaware County in Sunbury, he was a faithful member of his Men’s Small Group there. Remembered by his family as a funny, talkative, gentle man that made friends easily, Rusty enjoyed all kinds of music, and was “a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll.” Rusty loved to ride his Harley-Davidson motorcycle and adored his grandchildren, cherishing the time he spent serving as their taxi driver and baby sitter.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Susan K. (Nacke) Price; sons, Ben Price of Columbus and Bryan (Kim) Price of Marengo; daughter, Carly (Dave) Westhoven of Marengo; four grandchildren, Brooke, Katelyn, William, and Eli; brothers, John G.
