Charles Rusch III

February 5, 1957 — February 21, 2022

Charles Daniel Rusch III, “Dan”, passed away Monday, February 21, 2022  after a long battle with a terminal illness. He was 65 years old. At the time of his death he was at home surrounded by his loving family. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, he and his family moved to Georgia in the 1970s. He was the eldest son of Charles Daniel Rusch Jr. and Sylvia Louise Vormbrock Rusch.

He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Ann Danielson Rusch; children Ben Rusch (Kim), Charles Daniel Rusch IV “Chuck” (Casey),  and Sam Rusch (Jenny), daughter-in-law Maggie Rusch, and two grandchildren: Braylee and Conner Rusch.  Also survived by siblings Chris Rusch (Susan),  Norma Rusch Elkin (Tom), Greg Rusch (Mandy) and Cindy Rusch Rudin (Lester), as well as several beloved nieces and nephews.

A loving husband and father,  Dan was dedicated to his family. He spent many years  in active leadership in the Boy Scouts program. He retired  after thirty years of employment with Bimbo Baking USA,  rising in the ranks from a bread delivery man to a district  sales manager. No matter where Dan went, he never met a stranger.  He will be greatly missed.  While his earthly journey is over, his heavenly life with Jesus has just begun.
