  6. Joyce – Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Rusty. Unfortunately I knew Rusty for only a very short period of time, but in that time I got to know Rusty’s humor, wit, love for hunting and the contributions that he made to the security of the Ohio Bank. I miss Tim Patterson, Kenny Karhoff an now Rusty.
