Craker,
Russell Eugene, known by most as Rusty, born 10/3/61, died Tuesday 6/29/04 after fighting cancer. He is survived by wife Sherri, daughter Sherlyn, son Rusty, mother Nina Westbrook, father Jack Craker and wife Deanne, sister and brother-in-law Kathie and Jackie Gentry, step-brothers Billy and Sam Westbrook, and step sister Susie Shondell. Lots of people will miss him very much; he was well liked by those who knew him. Rusty served in the Marines as a truck driver, and carried that passion through to his jobs as an adult. Most recently he drove a tanker for TXI, where he won several awards for safe driving and skill. He competed in truck rodeos, representing TXI in contests with other concrete companies. Per his wishes, Rusty’s body will be cremated; his ashes spread over the highways of Dallas, where he drove most of his life. Memorial services will be held at Laurel Oaks Funeral Home, 12649 Lake June Road, Mesquite, TX  75180 Saturday, July 10, 2004 at 2:00 p.m. Rusty asked that anyone who attended would come dressed comfortably – he always hated suits.
