Obituary of Russell Ray "Rusty" Furr

Russell Ray "Rusty" Furr, 68, of Indian Trail, passed away July 30, 2022. Born April 6, 1954 in Charlotte, North Carolina, he was the son of the late Ray and Peggy Furr.

Heaven now has a wonderful craftsman, teacher, and provider. Rusty was a tremendous mentor to his children and grandchildren. He was a great speaker for the Lord his entire life, and was one of the greatest story tellers the world has ever known. Rusty taught his children to be self-sufficient, to work hard, to do what they love and to surround themselves with people that bring them joy.

Rusty was an entrepreneur and a master builder of all things. He was a man of integrity, and he never passed up an opportunity to help his family and friends, no matter what they needed. He was an avid outdoorsman; He hunted, trapped, fished, farmed, and appreciated everything God created. He shared those experiences with many friends and always had the most hilarious stories. Rusty always said, “You have to be a friend to have a friend.” It’s such a simple message, but it truly describes his life and all the wonderful people surrounding him.

He will be deeply missed by all.

Russell is survived by Ms. Jamie Furr (Daughter), and her son, Anthony; Ms. Brandy Furr (Daughter); Mr. William Furr, and wife, Kelia, and their children, Colton and McClaine Furr; Susan Furr (mother of his children), and many more loving friends.

Russell was preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Peggy Furr.
